Gulf International Services announced that its subsidiary Gulf Helicopters Company (GHC) has signed a new contract with Saudi Aramco to perform heavy maintenance on its fleet of AgustaWestland AW 139.
Gulf Helicopters, being a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved repair station since 2000 and has been accumulating experience and expertise in maintaining the helicopters under FAA regulations over the years. The same combined with a cost efficient service have been considered not only as a competitive edge but also as a unique selling point of Gulf Helicopters.
Gulf Helicopters, being a well-established and steady growing maintenance, repair and overhaul facility, is able to achieve on-time outputs to meet the target dates set.
Gulf Helicopters has so far undertaken over fifteen 4-year inspections on AW 139s and amassed a wealth of know-how and capabilities to carry out heavy inspections on the type. The Company's maintenance capabilities also extend to the other types operated, like AW 189, S 92, Bell 412, Bell 212, Bell 206 L3 and MD 902.
