Airbus Helicopters Selects Hillsboro Aviation as a Sales Agent

Airbus Helicopters selected Hillsboro Aviation to serve as its commercial aircraft sales agent for the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. The agreement, announced Tuesday here at Heli-Expo, marks the first such sales agent authorization by Airbus Helicopters in its 47-year history, Hillsboro said.

The agreement calls for Hillsboro to represent Airbus Helicopters products in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming and Alaska. In addition, Hillsboro is expanding its MRO facilities and capabilities to support Airbus Helicopters models.

“We are pleased and excited to embark on this new relationship with Hillsboro Aviation,” said Treg Manning, v-p of sales and marketing for Airbus Helicopters, adding Hillsboro “will enable Airbus Helicopters to increase sales and improve customer support in the Northwestern U.S.”

Based in Hillsboro, Ore., Hillsboro Aviation has a long track record of aircraft sales, selling more than 1,000 helicopters and airplanes since 1980. It additionally operates a fleet of 13 helicopters, including two Airbus Helicopters H125s. Hillsboro took delivery of the first H125 during last year’s Heli-Expo and took delivery of the second on February 16 in Grand Prairie, Texas. The newest aircraft will be used for utility work while the initialH125 is operated to ferry supplies under Department of Defense contracts.

Hillsboro president and owner Max Lyons said the agreement will enable the company to offer “the broadest selection and most versatile product line on the market.”
