Finmeccanica - AgustaWestland announced a further reinforcement of its collaboration with Rotortrade Services with the sale of eight second hand helicopters of various types to this partner. The contracts, announced at Airshow China in Zhuhai, are a significant achievement testifying the effectiveness of the partnership established by AgustaWestland and Rotortrade Services through the exclusive distributorship agreement for second hand helicopters worldwide signed in 2013.
Under such agreement Rotortrade Services is supporting the sale of both AgustaWestland and other manufacturer's "trade in" helicopters globally. This order allows an even more effective exploitation of opportunities offered by this specific commercial market segment, particularly for the sale of pre-owned VIP/corporate and private helicopters. AgustaWestland helicopters benefit from exceptional value retention thanks to very high market demand, flexibility to change roles and ease of reconfiguration. These features represent for AgustaWestland customers an excellent opportunity to pursue further gains from their used helicopters.
Rotortrade Services is a global helicopter brokerage, working closely with all the major manufacturers and vendors, and specializing solely in helicopters. In addition to selling pre-owned helicopters, the company can also offer related services, from pre-purchase inspections to airworthiness and maintenance management.
