Trusted worldwide, commercial and government heavy-lift helicopter operators choose Columbia for a comprehensive range of responsive life-cycle support and MRO services, from tip to tail, in the hangar or in the field.
In addition, Columbia Helicopters hold a Type & Production Certificate for the Columbia 234 Chinook & a Type Certificate for Columbia Vertol 107-II, and is a factory-authorized service center for Honeywell, GE-approved and a NAVAIR-approved MRO facility.
There is a difference between knowing how to maintain a helicopter and understanding what’s required to keep it operating in peak condition. We understand — because we don’t just support them — we fly them, too.
