Something To Brag About At HAI
Arrow Aviation Company of Broussard, LA, recently took delivery
of a new Bell 206L-4 helicopter. Arrow Aviation is a full service
helicopter maintenance firm, which also owns a fleet of 11 Bell
206B Series JetRangers and 206L Series LongRangers, utilized on
long-term leases throughout the United States. The new 206L-4 will
join the lease fleet following the installation of additional
mission equipment at Arrows' Broussard. facility. Initially, the
new LongRanger will be operated in the US Pacific Northwest.
Cyril Guidry, Arrows' president and founder commented about the
new aircraft, "We can always depend on the L-4 to get the job done.
It has just the right payload that our lease customers require, and
the reliability that the LongRanger provides is unmatched by
competing helicopters. We can send it off on lease, and do very
little to keep it operational." Arrows' Chief Financial Officer,
Richard Campbell, added, "The LongRanger is exceptional from a
financial viewpoint. Its operating costs are very reasonable, and
equally as important, the LongRanger doesn't surprise us. CFO's
don't like surprises."
Arrow Aviation provides helicopter maintenance and completion
services to the commercial, offshore, corporate, emergency medical
and private aviation sectors of the helicopter industry. As a Bell
Helicopter-Textron Customer Service Facility, Arrow provides
structural repair, component overhaul, spares sales, routine
