Rotortrade through its six offices and various partners around the world has recently reported strong 2018 mid year results with 12 helicopter deliveries, 9 backlogs and 16 new exclusive mandates across manufacturers, class and mission. In these short 6 months, the team has been travelling in over 30 countries to meet its customers, inspect helicopters and develop new partnerships. Together with its regional partners, the company is weaving an extensive network covering more and more of the global market.

The helicopter industry is by any measure a global industry however, helicopters operate in a range of roughly 300nm with 80% of operators working within local communities. Matching demand and supply to find the most suitable aircraft to meet one’s needs means being able to search every corner of the world and understand local specificities.

Rotortrade firmly believes that while modern technology and online tools help bring demand and supply closer, given the complexity of buying or selling a helicopter, face to face human interaction and personal relationships remain critical in order to build the necessary trust to ensure a smooth and succesful transaction.

To this end Rotortrade will be attending the following external trade events in the next few months:

• 27 - 28 Sept ---  3rd Civil Helicopter SEA Summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia                          
• 16 -18 Oct --- HELITECH 2018 in Amsterdam, Netherlands

7th of September 2018, Heli-Power India Airshow, New Delhi ”“ Rotortrade and Indocopters (Vectra Group) announce the signing of a Network Partnership Agreement to offer nose to tail pre-owned helicopter sales, retrofit and support solutions in India.

Rotortrade a leading international helicopter dealer and distributor with 6 offices around the world and Indocopters the largest specialist helicopter MRO provider in India based in Greater Noida (New Delhi), sister company to Global Vectra, India’s largest privately-owned helicopter operator both part of the Vectra Group, are thrilled to announce their partnership to steer the Indian pre-owned helicopter market towards its fullest potential.
Both companies clearly see the need to integrate complimentary services in what is often perceived and can often be a complex regulatory and market environment. Thanks to Rotortrade’s extensive inventory and cross border helicopter sales experience and Indocopters intricate knowledge of Indian regulations and specificities combined with extensive in-house MRO capability including paint booth, engine shop and several bases across the country, the partnership will enable customers in India to source the best helicopters from around the world with a suit of customization and operational maintenance support options throughout India.

The aim of this partnership is also to help provide an outlet for local operators to trade their helicopters within the global market rather than mainly within their domestic market. It will give international customers more peace of mind and the opportunity to rely on a first-class organization to ensure the condition of the helicopters being sold and a smooth export process.
Indian operators will also benefit from a suit of warranty services available on select Rotortrade helicopters.
“While we know it will not be so straight forward and success will not come overnight, our intentions are clear, and we are convinced Indocopters is the best partner to achieve our targets” says Aurelien Blanc Partner at Rotortrade. “Indocopters will not compromise on quality and believes like us that we must raise awareness on ways to build a more sustainable and profitable industry for the benefit of all parties involved notably Indian operators”.
“With this new partnership Indocopters closes another gap. With sales and re-marketing of pre-owned Helicopters, our operational (NSOP), maintenance and parts support, Indocopters is now a complete Solution provider for the Helicopter industry in the region.

We take this opportunity to highlight a couple of our most competitive aircraft for sale... and please contact us for any other requirements.

This year’s HAI was very positive not only because of its location in the desert but by its renewed optimism. Despite few major announcements as we may have been used to some years back, the mood was definitely much better then in the past couple of years and while competition remains very high, more deals are being made.
