Jørn Elfving Rasmussen - Technical Director

Air Greenland

Air Greenland have had a very pleasant journey with Rotortrade in connection with introducing H225 into Air Greenland fleet. Rotortrade has met all possible milestones and the introduction into operation was done on time and to agreed quality, despite challenges with Corona etc.

Our SPOC in the project was very costumer minded and didn’t put the challenges on the costumer(us) as is usually the case, but solved the challenges, which felt very good and comfortable.

All in all we are very satisfied with RT corporation.

Rod M. Tinney Jr. - CEO

Air Center Helicopters

I am happy to recommend Rotortrade to anyone in search of helicopters, or associated parts and equipment.

RT has always been very responsive to our requests and produced out of the box solutions for us designed to fit our needs.

Ian Vanderbeek - CEO

Aviator group

We have known the team at Rotortrade for a number of years. Our most recent transaction was extremely complex and we were most impressed with the high level of communication and transparency that their team displayed during the process.

We were kept fully informed and the transaction closed ahead of schedule and with minimum stress.

We are very confident in their ability to achieve successful outcomes from both straightforward and more complex sales campaigns.

Fred North

There are many helicopter dealers around the world but very few have the global reach, level of service, 24/7 availability, amazing professionalism and the sense of client commitment RT has.

I have worked with so many worldwide throughout my career that I can say with confidence those guys are by far the best.

They do not pretend to please you, instead, giving you the real facts making things happen your way and in your timeline.

The only way to go if you ask me..."

Will Banks - Director

GB Helicopters

GB Helicopters was tasked with sourcing a VIP helicopter. We looked on the open market and contacted several brokers. When we contacted Rotortrade, we were looked after by a sales rep from RT France who instantly engaged with our needs. Several solutions were put to us and we were able to fine tune our search to an excellent off-market machine. The whole buying process was made easy by having a dedciated professional that worked hard for us to get exactly what we were looking for and handling everything and all issues for us. Visits to view and survey the aircraft were arranged eficiently and any rectification works immediately picked up and investigated. The buying process was made very painless due to an excellent level of service provided by Rotortrade.

Gualter Pizzi - Director

For Gualter Helicopters it is very important to work with Rotortrade to have access to wide inventory of helicopter models and brands outside of Brazil, as well as the support of the Rotortrade worldwide network to market our inventory.

We praise Rotortrade personnel’s understanding and awareness of its client’s requirements matching it with what the market requires efficiently.”

Rudolf Schider - Managing Director

Schider Helicopter Service S-H-S

I have been in the helicopter business for 28 years now and had bought a lot of used helicopters all over the world. The correct assessments of the technical condition and the resulting value were always a challenge, because there were also different helicopter-types. The right or serious business partner is very important and in recent years I have found a real good partner in Rotortrade. In the meantime we had already carried out two really good deals and I would like to emphasize, that I can confirm my complete satisfaction with both the quality and the price ultimately achieved! We will definitely plan and ultimately carry out further business with Rotortrade.

Sam Thompson - Pilot, Consultant

Surge Air

When we approached Rotortrade, we had already been in touch with several brokers but they were unable to source a satisfactory machine to meet our specifications. Rotortrade very quickly identified a perfect match for us. During the inspection and purchase process Rotortrade was pivotal in ensuring that some last minute issues were smoothly handled, preventing a delay in the purchase and subsequent international delivery. We were very happy with the entire process and would thoroughly use or recommend Rotortrade in future.

Arnaud Martinez - Chief Executive Officer

The Helicopter Company

Rotortrade Team, led by heavy experienced and dedicated owners and leaders have been a ‘game changer’ for The Helicopter Company. The fleet ramp-up that THC is facing, absolutely not standard in the industry, in a challenging period such as the Covid-19 pandemic with all the associated logistic issues, would not be achievable without the full support of Rotortrade team.

Rotortrade is not only a recognised helicopter dealer but a key partner for THC. We appreciate their attention to detail and customer focused approach, always going the extra mile.

Rotortrade team, after having demonstrated many times their full commitment to our project, is part of the family now and THC welcome the opportunity to receive their full support to address the future objectives and challenges of the company.

Philip Markham - CMO

In August 2020, THC engaged Rotortrade to support an unprecedented program to introduce 10 new H125's into the THC fleet in 8 months. Before the start, the program was faced with many challenges related to aggressive delivery schedules, first of type certification and a highly complex pre-delivery technical work-scope.

The successful delivery of the logistical program during the Covid-19 pandemic was in itself simply extraordinary. The pre-delivery program included post production reconfigurations on 10 helicopters across 5 MRO spread over 2 continents.

The RT and THC teams quickly developed a solution-focused and collaborative approach to the program. THC found the entire RT team to be technically competent, commercially astute and client focused. 3 essential elements to the success of any program of this magnitude. The commitment, capacity and capability of RT is unparalleled. They have been an critical success factor to THC's H125 program and we welcome the opportunity to work with them again.
