Anaheim, California (Feb. 27, 2024) – Schweizer is pleased to announce it is expanding factory overhaul services under its FAA Part 145 Repair Station certification to help reduce customers’ costs. New services now available for the S300C, S300CBi, and S333 helicopters include overhauls of main and tail rotor gearboxes, landing gear dampeners, and actuators.

“Schweizer customers are asking for ways to cut costs in aircraft ownership, and we’ve responded,” says Schweizer President and CEO David Horton. “We possess the only approved test stand in the world for Schweizer main and tail rotor gear boxes. With the receipt of our Repair Station Certificate, we can now perform cost effective critical component overhauls for customers in house.”

By providing increased overhaul services for labor-intensive components, Schweizer reduces the overhead and delays associated with field overhauls. Schweizer now provides these services faster and at new lower costs for its customers. Schweizer is also investing in on-the-shelf components that will be available for exchange where minimizing customer’s down time is critical.

Additionally, Schweizer is exploring opportunities to repair components that are currently only replaceable, further reducing costs.

“Manufacturing processes for our products date back to the 1950s and 1960s,” Horton added. “For instance, some part manufacturing is approved for casting only when we can machine the same part today much more economically. By modernizing and gaining FAA approval for new processes, we can again reduce costs, which we pass along to our customers.”
