TRADEWIND INTERNATIONAL, LLC, is parting out two Aerospatiale SA365N Dauphin helicopters
Janesville, WI — Tradewind International, LLC, (http://www.tradewindinternational.com), a world-wide buyer and supplier of helicopter parts, announced today that the two SA365N Dauphin helicopters accepted earlier this year from Norway where they last saw service with CHC Helicopter. EI-MIP C/N 6119 built in 1984 and G-BLUM C/N 6101 built in 1985 are in the process of being parted out, and the parts they supply will help to keep others in the SA365N fleet flying. Although the helicopters arrived minus main rotors and engines, the airframes, interiors and instrument panels were essentially complete, including avionics.
EI-MIP is has been almost stripped bare at this point, and G-BLUM awaits its turn. “As a pilot, and a lover of flying machines, I hate to see an aircraft being taken apart, never to fly again, however, the many parts these two ships are yielding will help to keep other Dauphines in the air for many years to come,” said Tom Huismann, Director of Business Development.
