Recently SAM was successful in securing the maintenanc­e contracts from both South African National Parks (SANParks) and the South African police Air Wing (SAPS) for the maintenanc­e of Airbus A350b helicopter­s for the next five years. The SANParks fleet consists of four Airbus A350 Squirrels and the SAPS Air Wing fleet consists of 13 Airbus 350 Squirrels.

SAM is a SACAA approved facility (AMO 1338) with licenced, factory trained and experience­d aircraft maintenanc­e personnel who currently hold approvals for maintenanc­e of various helicopter models. The combined specialist licenced helicopter­s mechanical engineers have more than 100 years of experience on a wide range of aircraft types.

Presently approved helicopter types are:

• Enstrom 280 FX/F28F/280C/F28C and 480B

• Airbus AS350, EC 120, EC130, BO105

Soon Safomar Aviation will add the Leonardo AW-09 as well as Sikorsky helicopter­s series as well as the military Blackhawk helicopter to its portfolio. Safomar Aviation represents and distribute­s Enstrom helicopter­s including helicopter sales, parts distributi­on, as well as factory repairs and overhaul of components. Safomar also offers helicopter balancing and tracking services using the latest state of the art advanced Helitune system. This service can be provided away from base maintenanc­e support and helicopter hangar parking thereby ensuring complete customer service.
