Leonardo and Rotortrade announced on March 8, during Heli-Expo 2022 in Dallas, Texas, their intention to move forward in their long-established partnership in the global pre-owned civil helicopter market, renewing the Distributor Agreement which, starting in 2013, made Rotortrade the sole international distributor of Leonardo’s pre-owned helicopters.
The collaboration between Leonardo and Rotortrade over that period led to the sale of around 80 helicopters of various models across the global civil market, with proven growth since that time. This collaboration has allowed Leonardo to penetrate new markets and establish a joint sale network leveraging mutual expertise and support.
Capitalizing on this success, Rotortrade is able to offer the aircraft models produced by Leonardo with manufacturer’s quality and support standard translating into a reliable and cost/effective service.
Stefano Villanti, SVP Sales, Leonardo Helicopters said “By renewing this collaboration, together with Rotortrade we will be able to pursue new opportunities while delivering the best solutions for those who seek for an ideal combination of affordability, capability and serviceability. We look forward to continuing to meet the evolving requirements in a market that complements the one for new helicopters.”
“We created Rotortrade to offer a comprehensive pre-owned helicopter solution for the benefit of our customers. With the full support of Leonardo, Rotortrade provides higher value to the market with programs such as the Leonardo Certified Pre-Owned helicopters. We believe that our success has been built by our client satisfaction throughout the 11 branches we operate from. With the strong boost of our new shareholders, we expect 2022 to be our best year ever.” said Philippe Lubrano, president of Rotortrade.
