Dallas, Texas – From Eurocopter booth #1917 at the 2012 Heli-Expo, American Eurocopter announced today that it has reached an agreement that will add Summit Aviation, based in Middletown, Delaware, to its extensive network of independent service centers across North America.

“Providing our customers with the service and support they need to keep their aircraft mission ready is one of our top priorities,” stated Anthony DiNota, American Eurocopter’s Vice President of Commercial Sales, Marketing and Customer Support. “Summit Aviation is known for its great service and customer care, and it will be a strategic service center in the northeast region of the United States.”
