MESA, Ariz., Feb. 25, 2015 — Phoenix Heliparts has established a new 1,000-square-foot component repair and overhaul shop, providing a cost-effective new service for operators of MD 500 Series helicopters at its growing Mesa, Ariz., facility.
Mesa, AZ, Jan. 22, 2015 — The same team that has driven growth and change at Phoenix Heliparts is now leading a complementary venture called Phoenix Heli-Support, an Airbus Helicopter and Turbomeca Service Center in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Combining Phoenix Heliparts' expertise in custom refurbishing and systems and avionics integration, and CFD's strengths in commercial modifications and military helicopter armament systems, creates a powerful alliance serving an international clientele.
SES is one of three prime contractors for the program, which is worth $350 million; SES sub-contracted Phoenix to complete structural work, component procurement, engineering and wiring-harness services.
The aircraft will be signed on-site, at Heli-Expo 2013, by Magnum, P.I. actors: Larry Manetti who played local beach club owner, Rick Wright; and Roger E. Mosley who played helicopter pilot, Theodore "T.C." Calvin.
