Component and Engine Services
Rotor Maxx’s technicians bring more than half a century of firsthand experience to the maintenance and overhaul of S-61/H-3 dynamic components and GE CT58/T58 engines. As a result of this dedication, the company has developed a reputation for maximizing the safety, reliability, and useful life of the components and engines it services. Indeed, Rotor Maxx’s stated philosophy is to provide quick turnaround times and maximum cost efficiency while maintaining the highest safety standards.
Understanding that helicopters operate in a myriad of mission profiles and atmospheric environments, the Rotor Maxx team tailors its component repairs and overhauls accordingly. In addition to employing standard maintenance practices, the company’s technicians ensure that any preemptive or preventive maintenance is performed with the customer’s prior approval and the approval of the manufacturer and the appropriate civil aviation authority.
Rotor Maxx holds a certificate of approval from Transport Canada as an approved maintenance organization (AMO) as well as the civil aviation authority’s approvals for sheet-metal structures, components, turbine engines, and liquid penetrant nondestructive testing (NDT) techniques and magnetic particle NDT techniques. The company also holds Part 145 maintenance organization approval from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
Rotor Maxx is equipped and approved to overhaul, repair, and inspect all S-61/H-3 components, including dynamic components, landing gear, and flight controls. The engine shop provides engine services from inspections to overhauls for GE CT58/T58 engines.
Rotor Maxx operates its own machine shop, which enables its technicians to maximize quality control while keeping costs down and turnaround times up. The shop’s equipment includes computerized numerical control (CNC) and manual milling machines, lathes, drill presses, and grinders, as well as specialty jigs and holding fixtures. Rotor Maxx’s machine shop is also available for third-party one-off or small-scale manufacturing.
Ongoing Customer Service
Rotor Maxx advertises that its service doesn’t stop when a customer’s finished product leaves the shop. The company remains available to provide ongoing support for its completed work by answering questions, troubleshooting problems, offering in-field servicing, or providing anything else the customer requests to maximize aircraft uptime.
Rotor Maxx also maintains a vast inventory of parts. The company negotiates long-term orders with vendors to maintain a steady supply of parts, which helps reduce turnaround times. The company is also willing to talk with customers about purchasing any surplus inventory they require, whether outright or on consignment.
