Vector Aerospace has announced the addition of the Airbus Helicopters H130 (formerly EC130 T2) and EC130 B4 tail rotor gearbox (TGB) to its existing range of rotorcraft repair and overhaul (R&O) capabilities.

Vector will offer this expanded support for the H130/EC130 from its facilities in Langley and Richmond, BC, Canada, which already offer operators worldwide a range of services for Airbus Helicopters models including the H125/AS350, AS355, H130/EC130, BO105, H135/EC135 and AS332.  Vector’s service offerings for the H130/EC130 family include D-level structural repairs, dynamic component repair (DCR), including main and tail rotor gearboxes, plus scheduled maintenance including 12-year inspections.  Vector is also an authorised Turbomeca Arriel 2 repair centre, supporting operators in North America.

“With our highly trained, OEM-certified technicians already providing full R&O on the H130/EC130 main gearboxes, we are pleased to offer this newly expanded capability to our customers,” said Craig Pluim, VP Sales - Rotary Wing, Vector Aerospace. “We are already experiencing great interest from the market regarding this new offering, and we will work diligently to meet our customer’s future requirements.”

Vector Aerospace is in the process of completing a brand-new, 88,000 sq. ft. facility at the Langley Regional Airport in BC, which will incorporate new avionics and structures shops plus 65,000 sq. ft. of hangar space.  This state-of-the-art building, which will also feature expanded engineering and STC development capabilities as well as a modernised paint facility, will be formally opened during the first half of 2016.
