Our United Rotorcraft brand designs and integrates quality aircraft products and systems to meet customer’s specific requirements and offers a full range of completion, paint, and MRO services and products for emergency medical services, search and rescue, law enforcement, utility, VIP, military operators, and the FIREHAWK®, the premier firefighting helicopter in the world.
