MD Helicopters Expands New Authorized Service Center and Parts Retailer Network

Clemens Aviation is now an MD Helicopters Authorized Service Center

Mesa, Arizona: February 14, 2024 – MD Helicopters, LLC (MDH) is pleased to announce two new additions to its growing global network of MDH service providers. Clemens Aviation of Wichita, Kansas, is now an MD Helicopters Authorized Service Center (ASC). Additionally, Seaside Helicopters of Mesa, Arizona, became an MD Helicopters Authorized Spare Parts Retailer. With a wealth of MDH service experience and knowledge, these new network additions further deliver on MD Helicopters’ commitment to increasing support options and reducing service response times for customers.

“We made a commitment to our customers to reduce response times by increasing and expanding the geographical location of our MDH service providers,” says MD Helicopters President and CEO Brad Pedersen. “As we continue to deliver on that promise, we are thrilled to welcome these two extremely reputable companies with proven track records of superior service to our service network.”

Clemens Aviation

Clemens Aviation built its reputation through a focus on excellence and innovation in aircraft service, sales, support, and management, including its own fleet of MD 500E and 530F model helicopters. With the launch of its MDH Authorized Service Center, the company is extending its helicopter operations expertise into a niche category that provides numerous benefits for its customers.

The Clemens Aviation MDH Authorized Service Center will specialize in E-to-F conversions, being one of four ASCs currently performing this upgrade. Additionally, Clemens Aviation has developed an innovative cockpit panel upgrade, set to receive an STC for broader market availability.

“As a longtime supporter of MD Helicopters, we’re excited to extend our partnership and offer the standard of service and innovation associated with MDH aircraft, says Dwayne Clemens, owner of Clemens Aviation. “Establishing our business as an MDH Authorized Service Center is a natural progression of our dedication to quality service, and the added capability of offering E-to-F conversions allows us to extend the benefits and convenience to our customers.” 

Seaside Helicopters

With more than 30 years of experience serving the MDH community, Seaside Helicopters brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the MDH Parts Retailer network. The company’s expansive customer base includes several large law enforcement agencies that require fast, reliable service for mission success, including Pasadena and Mesa police departments.

Seaside Helicopters recently relocated to Mesa from San Diego to enhance its regional and geographical strategic position to support MD Helicopters customers.

“We’re excited for this partnership with MD Helicopters, but most importantly, we’re thrilled about what this partnership means for our customers,” says Seaside Helicopters Owner Ashley D’Attilio. “Many of our customers are working on time-critical jobs in challenging environments. We know how important getting the required parts on time is for our customers and our partnership with MDH helps us ensure our customers are supported when they need it most.”
