Global Aerospace Logistics, LLC (GAL) and Airbus Helicopters have announced the renewal of their customer support services distribution agreement.

The agreement represents the cornerstone of GAL’s support services strategy and will strengthen GAL’s capabilities to keep the UAE Armed Forces at a peak state of readiness.  

GAL, a subsidiary of Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC), the UAE’s integrated defence manufacturing and services platform, is a key supplier of professional aerospace and defense maintenance services and support in the UAE. The continuation of this agreement with Airbus Helicopters further enhances GAL’s role as a provider of both routine and urgent customer support services to the UAE’s Joint Aviation Command, including: new spare parts, repairs, training and technical publications. 

 “GAL is proud to be considered a strong member of the Airbus Helicopters support network and we are pleased to renew this agreement with Airbus Helicopters”, said Abdulla Murad Al Balooshi, GAL’s chief executive officer.  “GAL firmly believes that long-term, balanced relationships with Original Equipment Manufacturers such as Airbus Helicopters are key to our ability to consistently provide a high-standard of maintenance and service to our customers.” 

Al Balooshi added that the extended relationship ensures GAL and Airbus Helicopters will be well-positioned to continue to meet the daily operational needs of the UAE Joint Aviation Command, ensuring efficient and effective fleet maintenance of the Ecureuil, Fennec, Dauphin, Panther and Super Puma helicopters operated across the UAE Armed Forces.
