United Completes New Helicopter Paint Facility
United Rotorcraft has completed a 6,600 square foot aircraft painting facility in Decatur, Texas. The new facility features a paint booth that can accommodate 35 to 40 aircraft paint completion projects per year. This week, United delivered an AS350 B3e for Airbus Helicopters. “Our new state-of-the-art facility has the ability to paint a variety of aircraft all the way up to an UH-60 Blackhawk Helicopter,” said Mike Slattery, president of United Rotorcraft. “It’s all about the quality of the product, and now we have more paint space, the latest technology and faster completion time, taking our paint capabilities to a whole new level.”
