Facility Information

Airbus Helicopters, Inc. is located on the west side of the Grand Prairie Municipal Airport in the heart of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Our facility requires employees and visitors to wear identification badges at all times. All visitors will be issued a temporary identification badge upon entrance to the facility. Visitors arriving after regular business hours will be briefed on facility access requirements, prior to arrival.

Students attending the Maintenance Training courses should wear appropriate attire for hands-on workshop training. Dress code is business casual attire. For safety reasons, we ask that customers wear closed-toed shoes, as they will tour the facility and different workshops during the course program. For flight training it is recommended that customers bring a headset/ helmet, and if they prefer a flight suit, knee board, and gloves.
