Welcome to RBI Hawker


RBI Hawker

RBI Hawker Limited is a Joint Venture between Hawker Pacific Airservices Ltd, and Bell which commenced operations in 2005 with a hand-picked team of rotor blade repair professionals.

Our aim was to establish a world class Helicopter Rotor Blade Repair and Overhaul Facility in the Middle East to service the needs of both the commercial and military helicopter operators in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

The facility has been established in the Jebal Ali Free Zone due to its central location and good transport links by sea, air and particularly by road. Of significant benefit is the ability to transport blades door to door from anywhere in the region, both saving time and cost.


RBI Hawker Ltd brings years of experience and capability to each repair performed. Further, we perform only repairs approved bythe Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) maintaining your existing quality, warranties and fleet uniformity.

OEM approvals include Bell for all Bell models and Leonardo for the A109 / 119 series and the AW139.

As RBI Hawker Ltd has direct access to OEM Engineering, we are able to pursue extended repair approvals to reduce the cost of repairs and extend the life of your blades. Some examples of the approvals that RBI Hawker Ltd will employ are:


Supplemental Erosion

With OEM Engineering approval, RBI Hawker Ltd can install inexpensive supplemental erosion strips to protect your blade. These durable strips ease maintenance and reduce repair cost.


Component Salvage and Reutilization

RBI Hawker Ltd has more OEM approvals to remove, reprocess and reinstall blade components than any other repair facility. These approvals greatly reduce repair cost and turn time delays due awaiting spares.


Twist Measurement & Management

RBI Hawker Ltd understands aging blades and repairs. Twist and contour deviations are difficult to detect and increase track and balance requirements and cost. RBI Hawker Ltd tooling and techniques can detect and improve twist deviations due to age or prior to repairs.

RBI Hawker technicians regularly travel the world to carry out field repairs. This greatly reduces the turn-around time and helps get your aircraft flying again with minimum downtime. We also hold several blades in inventory and can provide options to alleviate AOG situations.

RBI Hawker has the best warranty in the industry and warrants its repairs for 3 years or 2000 hours pro-rated.

  • Climate controlled (temperature and humidity) bonding and balance areas
