Components - Repair and Overhaul
Being authorized to carry out component repair and overhaul services for the Bell 206A/B and Bell 206L is just another service offered at Hill Aircraft Service.

  


Structures
Hill Aircraft is approved to carry out structural repairs and modifications on both helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. From minor dent to major reconstruction - there is no job too big or too small. Our qualified and dedicated staff complete each and every project with the same high standard and attention to detail.

     


Complete Aircraft Refurbishment
We are proud of our past projects and excited about our current ones. It is with enthusiasm and the commitment of providing quality workmanship that our team tackles every new aircraft. Whether it is a Single Otter from Anchorage, Alaska, or a helicopter from Hawaii, a 1947 Seabee or an older Cessna 180, each and every aircraft undergoes a remarkable transformation. And in addition to the repairs and aesthetics there is always the possibility of an engine conversion or other modification. Who knows - the aircraft you have always wanted - may be your own - just refurbished.

  
   


Custom Paint and Design
Our self-contained paint booth and nearby paint preparation facility allow staff to complete paint projects quickly and efficiently. From touch-ups to complete paint jobs every step in the process is carried out carefully and methodically while adhering to environmental standards. Trained staff at Hill can assist the customer in choosing a fresh new look. Whether your goal is to be noticed in the marketplace or improve the appearance of a private aircraft - the possibilities are as endless as the range of colours and graphics available.

       


Upholstery: Utility or Corporate Use
Nothing improves the inside appearance of an aircraft quite like new upholstery. Whether it is functional utility or "statement-making" corporate, a wide variety of materials and colours are available. Add to that a custom embroidered logo or design and a new carpet and the make-over is complete.

       


Appraisals and Audits
We have experience in providing appraisals for financing purposes, insurance requests and determining re-sale value for both helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. Pre-sale inspections and reviewing of log books have been of benefit to a number of our customers considering an aircraft purchase. Or perhaps you require an audit to be conducted on a charter company transporting your personnel. We have experience in all of these areas and in locations from Canada to South America. For any of these specialized services please feel free to contact us.


Aircraft Recovery
This is an area where resources, skill, and ingenuity have proven to be the winning combination. The challenges of weather, terrain, aircraft type and access must always be addressed. Aircraft have been recovered using scuba gear, air support, overhead cranes, trucks, river boats - the list goes on. Working with insurance companies and private owners to retrieve aircraft involved in minor mishaps or more unfortunate and major incidents has provided our team with invaluable experience in the recovery process. Our aim is to salvage as much as possible without causing any further damage and subsequent expense. It requires patience, careful planning and a knowledge of aircraft structure and design. We hope you don't need to recover an aircraft - but if you do - we can help.
