Cadorath and Airbus Helicopters recognized their partnership at Heli-Expo 2019 being held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta on March 5.
Cadorath will provide D-Level single part repairs for the Dauphin family (365/155) of helicopters. The subsequent approval and performance of these repairs will be based out of Cadorath’s Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada facilities.
The D-Level special process approval is expected to be completed in early spring of 2019 and will allow Cadorath to begin fulfillment of these repairs and services. Initially, Cadorath will provide these services for Airbus Helicopters Inc., Airbus Helicopters Canada and Helibras. Further expansion to other model aircraft will begin with the inclusion of the 350/130 light helicopters. Cadorath will also begin to provide repairs and solutions to the Approved Service Center network and operators.
“This partnership and approval commemorate the efforts of 30 years completing aerospace single part repairs and overhauls,” said David R. Haines, COO for Cadorath. “We wish to thank Airbus Helicopters for their commitment to a tremendous amount of work performed by both of our organizations over the last three years in pursuit of this partnership.”
“In our ongoing mission to provide our customers with state-of-the-art and flexible MRO solutions, we have partnered with Cadorath to complement our current support and services portfolio,” said Anthony Baker, vice-president of Customer Support for Airbus Helicopters North America. “Entering into this co-operative agreement will allow us to support our operators in a competitive way.”
The partnership is meant to assist in the current capabilities of the Airbus Helicopters DCR (dynamic component repair) and continue to grow business in that space. Cadorath looks to closely align with this objective. Under the guidance and authorization of Airbus Helicopters, Cadorath will also assist in the exploration of capabilities and look to offer new repairs and services.
