Tradewind International Strips Clean Two SA365N Dauphins
Tradewind International, LLC, a world-wide buyer and supplier of helicopter parts, announced today that two SA365N Dauphin helicopters accepted last year from CHC Helicopter, where they last saw service in Norway, have been stripped clean. EI-MIP C/N 6119 built in 1984 and G-BLUM C/N 6101 built in 1985 arrived without main rotors and engines; however, the airframes were essentially complete and yielded many valuable parts, accessories, instruments and avionics.
“The parting out process yielded a large supply of valuable items, which will help to keep other Dauphins in the air, doing what they were meant to do,” said Tom Huismann, Vice President, “What remains of the two airframes remind me of fish skeletons that have been picked clean, and we are now seeking a buyer for those bones.”
Tradewind International, LLC, is seeking offers for the skeletal remains of EI-MIP C/N 6119 and G-BLUM C/N 6101, and all reasonable offers will be considered.
