Business Operations
In a business environment where global operations have become a necessary fact of life, how does a helicopter operator survive in an environment where costs are high and margins can be frustratingly slim? It takes the support of a remarkably small core of professionals, who take on challenges others decline, to move helicopters around the world from where they are today to where they will be needed tomorrow – keeping them flying while they are on the job and bringing them back when it’s all over.
Establishing your brand and rising to a position of influence in a competitive marketplace is challenging indeed and for helicopter manufacturer AgustaWestland (AW), the journey to make its mark in the Canadian marketplace can best be described as a solid work in progress – with definite successes along the way.
