Bell Textron Inc. today announced it will be adding Intercopter GmbH to its Authorized Maintenance Center network. Intercopter is located in Taufkirchen, Germany near Munich.

This expansion news in Germany comes approximately two weeks after Bell introduced Aero Club of Warsaw, Poland, as its first Authorized Maintenance Center (AMC) in Europe. A day later, Air Service International A/S in Denmark became Bell’s second European AMC.

“Growing our German footprint has been one of our top European priorities and having Intercopter in our network is another important step in executing this strategy,” said Duncan Van De Velde, managing director, Europe and Russia, Bell. “This new AMC provides German customers a sense of security that the maintenance performed on their aircraft has been vetted by Bell.”
