While NAC Parts has been leading the way in the aviation parts industry for many years, 2019 has been a particularly notable one for the parts division, a fact which was underscored by a significant spike in traffic to its webpage.
Family-owned French aircraft manufacturer, Daher recently acquired the US-based Quest Aircraft Company, renaming it Kodiak Aircraft.
Daher is recognised in aviation circles as the producer of the fastest turboprop aircraft in its class, and the acquisition of Kodiak Aircraft will enable the 156-year-old company to widen its product range and strengthen its position in the turboprop segment.
As the independent representative for Bell Helicopters in 13 African countries, NAC’s Helicopter Sales division was an ideal travelling partner for Bell Flight when it took its model 429 helicopter on a recent demo tour through East Africa. The tour offered operators and potential buyers in the region the opportunity to experience the 429 for the first time, up close and on their own turf.
NAC, together with its air ambulance operator, Universal Air Evac, attended the annual Global International Travel and Health Insurance Conference (ITIC), which was held recently in Malta. The conference brought industry experts together to discuss international best practice, while offering valuable networking opportunities.
With recent events regarding fraudulent aircraft parts and improper aircraft maintenance making headlines, safety and logistics processes have come under the spotlight. At NAC Parts, the safety and quality of all our parts is always top of mind, and each and every part we receive goes through stringent checks to ensure complete safety and peace of mind.
NAC International Operations carries out global special mission contracts throughout Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Australasia and the Far East, covering everything from away-from-base flight operations and aircraft maintenance, to management and support services, often in hostile and unstable regions.
