Acquisition of Helicare Maintenance

We are thrilled to announce our acquisition of Helicare Maintenance Limited and to welcome the Helicare team into our widespread Oceania Aviation family.

Originating from Murray and Kim Wootton’s vision to provide dedicated support to Helicopter operators located in the upper South Island and Wellington region, Helicare Maintenance Limited was founded in 1998 in Nelson, New Zealand.

Since 1998, Helicare has continued to grow, moving into their purpose-built facilities in 2002, receiving NZCAA Part 145 certification in 2009 and achieving their Robinson Helicopter Service Centre status in 2013.

With the Nelson operation continuing business with its staff at the helm, numerous members of our team have visited Helicare over the last couple of months, meeting with and getting to know the Helicare team ensuring a seamless transition. 

"Our management team sees Helicare as an excellent, well-established company with a good track record. We are pleased and honoured to continue the good work carried out by Murray Wootton. Murray will continue to work within the business on projects where he has interest and available time. We are very pleased to have his support.”

The acquisition was finalised on the 11th of August 2017.
