Bell Helicopter’s Singapore service center has received approval from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) of Australia to perform maintenance and customization on all Bell 412 models that are registered for operations in Australia. Operators can now take delivery of these helicopters and maintain them at the Singapore facility.
“Customer demand for Bell helicopters and service offerings in the Asia-Pacific region is rapidly increasing, and we are taking steps to ensure our customers have what they need, when they need it,” said Michael Reagan, director of global services at Bell Helicopter. “Over the past few years, the Bell Helicopter team has been laser focused on obtaining certifications and approvals around the globe that will provide our customers with even more offerings.”
This approval adds to recent authorization for the Bell Helicopter service center in Singapore to perform inspection, testing, repair and modification for current production Bell Helicopter aircraft under the regulatory authorities of Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.
