Heli-One Norway began work on Makila engines in 1985, beginning with maintenance and repair. Full overhaul capability was achieved in 1990 and since then over 2000 engines have passed through the shop with over 500 overhauls and 1600 repairs being completed.
When an Engine or Module arrives, we perform a comprehensive inspection at arrival to determine the condition and removal reason. Depending on the condition of the engine and the reasons for removal, normal pretesting is performed before the engine is disassembled and boroscope checks are performed to determine extent of damage. Heli-One Norway also holds a fully operational hydraulic shop and full capability on Makila accessories including fuel control units.
Heli-One Norway is the only facility outside of Safran approved to assemble engines and has delivered 58 from the shop.
