RUAG Aviation has achieved maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) approvals for the new Bell 505 Jet Ranger X helicopter, the company announced on 6 June.

RUAG will provide all MRO services on the Bell 505 at its helicopter support facility in Sion, Switzerland. The RUAG team received complete training for the new services during the first Bell 505 technical courses at the Bell Helicopter Training Academy.

The helicopter services centre has received the approval ratings for the Bell 505 under its European Aviation Safety Agency Part 145 classification. The training course also allows RUAG to reassemble the new helicopter.

Claudio Zeiter, team leader commercial helicopter services, RUAG Aviation, said: ‘The reassembled helicopters require testing and the certificate of release to service. We encourage all Bell 505 customers in Europe to direct the shipping of their new helicopter to our facilities in Sion, Switzerland. Our trained specialists ensure a reliable and prompt reassembly.’
