Gulf of Mexico Support Center

In January 2019, Leonardo Helicopters officially unveiled its new Gulf of Mexico Support Center in Broussard, Louisiana. The 20,000 sq/ft facility provides FAA and EASA certified blade repair, spare parts and technical support services to over 700 Leonardo helicopters that are currently in operation throughout the Gulf of Mexico.

Leonardo Helicopters’ decision to open this new support center was supported in large part by customer feedback, further demonstrating the importance of investing in technical support and parts solutions for aircraft already in operation.
