A day after announcing the addition of Aero Club, Bell introduced its first AMC in Denmark, Air Service International A/S. Located in Billund. Air Service International will provide local field maintenance for the Bell 206A/B, 206L and 505.

Aero Club is operated under the same ownership as JB Investments Sp., a Bell Independent Representative in Poland since 2007. The added support of Aero Club compliments heavier maintenance services provided by Bell’s Prague service centre.
“It’s exciting to be a part of Bell’s AMC network and to continue its excellency of providing unmatched support and service to its Polish customers,” said Jan Borowski, President of Aero Club and JB Investments companies. “We are confident that combining our sales efforts with professional technical support will result in growing the Bell fleet in Poland.”
