Bell has named RBI Hawker Australia as a Bell Customer Service Facility, making it the fifth maintenance provider in the country so designated.

Based in the Brisbane suburb of Eagle Farm, RBI Hawker Australia, a joint venture between Jet Aviation-owned Hawker Pacific Airservices and Bell, will provide rotor blade repair for all Bell models, as well as for the Leonardo AW139 and AW109

series. The company recently received its Part 145 maintenance organization approval from the Australian Civil Aviation Authority (CASA) for its new 10,860-sq-ft (1,000-sq-m) facility.

“Today’s announcement demonstrates Bell and Jet Aviation’s commitment to continually expand service offerings in the region and contribute to Australian sovereign capability with advanced blade repair capabilities in-country,” said Chris Schaefer, the helicopter manufacturer’s director of international support and service. “Through our long and successful relationship with Jet Aviation on international helicopter aftermarket support, I am confident that RBI Hawker Australia will be successful in providing our Asia-Pacific customers industry-leading rotary repair services.”
