During the 2018 HAI Heli-Expo, Oceania Aviation has been recognized at the MD Helicopters service center meeting for outstanding commitment and service to the MD500 single engine fleet in its region.
Oceania Aviation is headquartered in New Zealand and has been providing the Australasian region with a comprehensive suite of general aviation services for the last 25 years. These services include helicopter component repair and overhaul, avionics install and upgrade, blade repair, turbine engine repair and overhaul, parts supply and more.
Presented by MD Helicopters’ Randy Schaffer, Eric Kessler, Chris Wolfe and George Martinez, Oceania Aviation’s helicopter components manager Peter Hatley was all too happy to accept this award on behalf of the company.
“Having supported the MD500 type in New Zealand for years, we pride ourselves on offering the industry with quality service and support, and we are honored to have our work recognized by MD Helicopters across their service center network,” says helicopter components manager Peter Hatley.
This award also recognizes exceptional engagement with MYMD.Aero, a customer service portal that allows increased communication and provides customers with the tools for data management, order placement, quoting, reviewing stock as well as an easy way to access MD technical publications.
“We have supported the use of MYMD.Aero since its conception and believe sharing data between manufacturers and customers is a great step toward reducing A.O.G. and improving type satisfaction,” says marketing manager Jessica Peckett. “Within New Zealand, the MD500 type is beloved and with 98 on the register the 500s have a significant impact on the aviation landscape. We are proud to support the MD fleet in our region.”
