Mesa, Arizona, September 26, 2023 – MD Helicopters (MDH) is pleased to announce its collaboration with Able Aerospace Services to provide expanded repairs on major components used in the repair & overhaul of MDH gearboxes and hub assemblies. This cooperation is one of many actions MDH is taking to improve aftermarket support.

This will allow MD Helicopters to reduce its overhaul costs and prices by repairing and refurbishing corroded or pitted parts. The collaboration will also increase MDH’s availability of reconditioned assemblies, improve availability of exchange units, and allow MDH to return specific serial numbers back to customers sooner.

“Able Aerospace specializes in rotorcraft component refurbishment, they have a long history of supporting MD Helicopters, and they are located just a few miles away in Mesa, AZ, which makes working together very convenient and efficient.” said Ryan Weeks, MD Helicopters Vice President, Aftermarket Sales and Support. “Able’s expanded repairs for main rotor hubs and gearboxes will significantly reduce the time and cost of repairing and overhauling those assemblies.”

“Able’s commitment to high quality and component reliability, combined with our innovative, cost-effective repair and development of overhaul solutions provide an unmatched value to our customers,” said Travis Tyler, Vice President and General Manager of Able Aerospace Services. “We look forward to the opportunity to support MD Helicopters and their customers.”
