Heli-One announced at Heli-Expo that it is now working with Leonardo Helicopters to establish AW139 Intermediate and Tail Gear Box (IGB, TGB) MRO capability as a Leonardo Helicopters Authorized Component Repair Centre. This new capability is being established at the Heli-One Canada facility in Delta, BC, and will give operators additional options for IGB & TGB maintenance services from an OEM Authorized Component Repair Centre.

Leonardo delivered its 1,000th AW139 helicopter in September 2019, as the versatile aircraft is flown around the world in a variety of missions like EMS, SAR, VIP, Law Enforcement, and Offshore.

Heli-One technicians are being trained by Leonardo to perform these complex IGB and TGB maintenance services. “We are excited to work with Leonardo helicopters to establish this new capability at Heli-One Canada,” said Christian Drouin, vice-president of Heli-One. “The technicians at our River Road facility are true professionals who strive to deliver quality products at the highest level. We aim to have this capability available soon so that operators can have additional options for IGB and TGB maintenance services.”

Heli-One is a Leonardo Authorized AW139 Service Center & Component Repair Centre and offers airframe and component MRO services ranging from major inspections to small component repair. Heli-One also offers Avionics and Rescue Equipment maintenance services to AW139 operators. Custom modifications and repairs developed by Design Engineers are also available to operators.
