Heli-One, a leading global provider of helicopter maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) services, has completed inspections for two Airbus H225 aircraft (one-year and eight-year inspections) for South Korea’s National 119. The inspections were completed simultaneously (10 days for one-year and seven weeks for eight-year inspection) at two Korean bases in Seoul and Busan, allowing the aircraft to return to service on time and within budget.
National 119 is the primary provider of firefighting and rescue services in South Korea and has a fleet of Airbus aircraft. Heli-One has provided inspection services for National 119 in the past, and has extensive expertise carrying out inspection and mobile repair team (MRT) services for the H225. Heli-One’s familiarity with National 119’s base and crew, in addition to its extensive background working on H225 aircraft, resulted in a quick turnaround time for the customer.
