Heli-One Poland completes first G-Check overhaul of ‘Heavy’ aircraft
Customers in Europe and the Middle East who operate large-capacity, long-range “heavy” helicopters now have a convenient, highly skilled option for major refurbishments of their aircraft. Heli-One Poland recently completed its first G-Check inspection, of an Airbus Helicopter Super Puma AS322L aircraft, for CHC Helicopter, Heli-One’s parent company and now is extending that service to other operators. The G-Check, repainting and other modifications of the CHC aircraft by Heli-One’s Rzeszow team were completed at the new customized, 65,000 square-foot hangar here. Heli-One had been operating from a temporary facility in Rzeszow since February 2013. The new facility has a maintenance hangar which can accommodate up to six large airframes, along with office and shop space.
