On May 26th, Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH signed an agreement to acquire Motorflug Baden-Baden GmbH. The German specialist for helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) with bases in Baden-Baden, Rheinmünster and Schönhagen near Berlin will become an integral part of Eurocopter’s service and support business and will complement Eurocopter’s maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities in the civil helicopter market. The acquisition of Motorflug will enable Eurocopter to offer even more comprehensive services to its customers while assuring the flexibility and reactivity its customers need. Motorflug was founded in 1955 as the first service provider for helicopters in Germany. In its three German facilities, it offers a wide spectrum of services covering helicopter airframes, engines, components, instruments and avionics. The acquisition by Eurocopter will be the continuation of an over 30-year history of successful cooperation that has begun in 1976 when Motorflug was approved as authorized service centre for MBB. This was soon followed by the approval as service centre for Aerospatiale’s models in 1984.
In its over 50-year long history, Motorflug has provided services on helicopters of numerous major brands. It is Eurocopter’s intention to continue to provide the same first-class service to all of Motorflug’s customers in the future.
Lutz Bertling, CEO of Eurocopter, stated, “I am pleased to welcome Motorflug to our Eurocopter family. We have identified the service area as one of our strategic axes of growth. Motorflug with its broad spectrum of service capabilities fits perfectly into our portfolio and is a valuable complement to the existing MRO capabilities of our group”
