Helicopter Manufacturers – OEMs

Helicopter manufacturers endeavour to:

1) Support both its civilian and military fleet in operation worldwide.

2) Implement safety and product enhancements throughout the life cycle of each helicopter model the company manufactures.

3) Design, test and certify new generations of helicopters and promote the latest state of the art flying machines across all market segments, operators and regions of the world.

OEM Support

Uplifting Aviation can support OEMs with the sourcing of pre-owned helicopters to fulfil their client’s mission whilst the new ordered helicopter(s) are manufactured. We can also help the manufacturer to find additional lifting capabilities to support their clients. For those operators and buyers who have never bought a new helicopter Uplifting Aviation will also promote the OEM’s new helicopter models to a new operator.

A good alternative to buying a new helicopter is the acquisition of the same model pre-owned, which financially can be in some cases more affordable for the operator, client and or end user. Having this option might encourage the future purchase of a new model, finances permitting.

We also present the case to helicopter owners and operators to arrange either a short-term lease or a sale, according to the client's needs.


We work with the following manufacturers:

  1. Airbus Helicopters
  2. Bell Helicopters
  3. Leonardo Helicopters
  4. Sikorsky
  5. MD Helicopters
  6. Kopter
  7. Robinson Helicopters
