European Rotors

Patria offers extensive range of capabilities in helicopter maintenance and life cycle management. Special focus for this show is Patria’s civil helicopter services. Earlier in 2022, Patria acquired Dutch-based NEDAERO, now Patria Netherlands, specialized in manufacturing, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), and distribution of components and systems for civil and military aircraft and helicopters. This acquisition complements Patria’s existing centers of excellence in Nordic countries consisting of helicopter platform related MRO and upgrade expertise, as well as Designs Organization Approval (DOA) based competencies.

Patria is also distributor for leading suppliers such as Collins Aerospace, Donaldson, JPC Aviation, Heliwagon, Orolia, Red Box, Safran and Switlik. Patria manufactures parts for Airbus and Lockheed Martin, which include structural and composite elements, yet also avionics components like fuel control units or panels, Remote Frequency Indicators, Flight Line Testers and Fiber Optic Gyroscopes (FOG). The FOG sensor is suitable for flight stabilization and attitude control of aircraft, helicopters, drones and missiles.

Our certificates include: AS9100 (ISO9001:2015)/AS9110/AS9120, Part 145 EASA/FAA/TCCA.

European Rotors will take place in Cologne, Germany, on November 8-10, 2022.
