Strategic Partnership Targets Global Robinson Helicopter Overhaul Market

September 13, 2018

BATON ROUGE, LA. – Atlanta-based Rotorcorp LLC today announced its newly-formed
strategic partnership with MAK Heliservices LLC based in Baton Rouge. Work performed as
part of the joint venture will be delivered under the newly formed ‘Rotorcorp Helicopter Services LLC’, which received its official Service Center authorization from Robinson HelicopterCompany in August 2018.

Rotorcorp Helicopter Services will focus exclusively on performing 2200 hour overhaul service for Robinson R22, R44, and R66 helicopters. This specialization will create significant cost savings, improved turnover times, and industry-leading quality for Robinson owners & operators. The Rotorcorp Helicopter Services joint venture is timed to meet surging demand of helicopters requiring overhaul which were manufactured by Robinson leading up to the recession in 2008 when the company experienced record production levels.
“This strategic alliance is a response to a future that was set in motion a decade ago,” said  Rotorcorp President Sean Casey. “We have seen this wave coming for years and realized that
we could fulfill an industry need with the right partner which we found in our customer MAK Heliservices and owner Mike Krulac.”

“At MAK Heliservices, we have assembled an experienced team, developed special tooling and secured the appropriate facility that will allow Rotorcorp Helicopter Services to turn out a top-
rate overhaul in about four weeks from teardown to test flight, and we are preparing to exceed customers’ expectation when it comes to delivery time.” The joint venture builds on Rotorcorp’s  position as the world-leading provider of parts, engines and major components for Robinson helicopters; combined with the technical expertise and highly-refined overhaul procedures developed by MAK. Each core helicopter will move through an “overhaul assembly line of sorts” similar to the factory overhaul option offered by Robinson, but with reduced time and expense.

Currently serving over one-thousand Robinson customers in 45 countries, Rotorcorp will now offer complete overhaul services to operators by FAA certified mechanics where there may not be a viable local service option available. U.S.-based Rotorcorp Helicopter Services will be available to serve customers from around the world- all coordinated by the company’s industry leading logistics capabilities.
