The AW101 Merlin – also known as the ‘Cormorant’ in Canada and the ‘Sea Queen’ in Norway – is manufactured by Leonardo (incorporating AgustaWestland) helicopters. Thanks to the variety of its configurations, sophisticated avionics systems and operational endurance, it’s the most advanced multi-role helicopter flying today.
To date we have acquired over 8000 lines of AW101 Merlin spares inventory, primarily via strategic sourcing from the UK MOD. We’re proud to support Leonardo Helicopters and other overseas operators with new parts sourced directly from OEMs as well as serviceable high value assets. We also carry out repair management of existing user inventory. All of this makes it one of our busiest areas of helicopter support.
We are currently actively seeking AW101 Merlin inventories and airframes for part-out at our facility based in West Sussex. Please feel free to get in touch to discuss how we might work together.
