ABU DHABI – H+S Aviation, a BBA Aviation company, announced today that its H+S Aviation Middle East facility in Abu Dhabi received General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) CAR 145 approval for PW200 and PT6C-67C engines in the United Arab Emirates.

“With this approval, we are now ready to deliver our exceptional levels of service and support to all PW200 and PT6C-67C customers in the UAE, including those enrolled in Pratt & Whitney Canada’s ESP® Program for the PT6C-67C,” declared Mark Taylor, Managing Director H+S Aviation.
The facility is part of a global service and support network that is focused on being close to the customer. The Abu Dhabi location was chosen because of the region’s rapid growth and the importance of helicopters to the area’s industry and governments.

This authorization opens the door for us to pursue additional approvals so that we are able to expand our rotorcraft capabilities for customers throughout the EMEA region,” continued Taylor.
