Vector Aerospace, a global independent provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, is prepared to highlight its broad range of customer-focused support solutions at the HAI Heli-Expo 2017 helicopter trade show and exposition being held in Dallas, TX, March 7-9.
A major highlight of Vector’s booth (#1612) will be its Airbus Helicopters AS350 fuselage display, showcasing the company’s nose-to-tail MRO capabilities on the AS350/EC130 family. The updated display being exhibited in Dallas incorporates the latest version of Vector’s crash-resistant fuel tank (CRFT), developed in partnership with Robertson Fuel Systems, as well as a D-level repair fixture. The AS350 fuselage display also features a sample of Vector’s composite repair capabilities.
Vector’s AS350 fuselage display will also be used to introduce the ‘SAFECRAFT’ portfolio of retrofittable safety technologies being offered by the company for the AS350/EC130 family in partnership with Astronautics Corporation; L3; Outerlink Global Solutions; Robertson; Safe Flight and Thales. The portfolio of safety technologies includes: electronic flight instruments; a new-generation autopilot; a collective cueing system; a powerline detection system; an icing conditions detector; flight data monitoring and ADS-B solutions, along with the CRFT.
In addition to its AS350 fuselage display, Vector’s booth at Heli-Expo 2017 will also include cutaways of a Safran Helicopter Engines Arriel turboshaft and an AS350 drivetrain, highlighting Vector’s MRO capabilities on a range of the industry’s most popular powerplants and dynamic components.
Vector will be releasing details of a range of recent developments and new capabilities during Heli-Expo, with several important contract signings planned for the event. Vector will also be detailing progress with its new state-of-the art facility in Langley, BC, Canada, which is just months away from completion. This 85,000-square-foot facility will consolidate Vector’s existing Langley-based airframe and avionics shops under one roof, streamlining workflow and improving efficiency.
Vector will also be holding several customer events at its booth during the show, including prize drawings for Apple iPhones and a customer appreciation event.
