Altus Principals Assist Keystone Aviation Services in the Acquisition of Aviation Service Division of Sikorsky Global Helicopters


Altus Associates principals assisted the Sigma Federal Alpha Fund and M International of McLean, VA in the acquisition of a second aviation turbine engine services operation through  Keystone Turbine Services LLC of Coatesville, Pa., the new entity emerging from an asset purchase from Sikorsky Global Helicopters. Keystone is a factory-authorized maintenance, repair and overhaul facility for the Rolls Royce M250 turbine engine.  It is also a Honeywell-authorized facility for fuel controls and governors and a service facility for the Turbomeca Ariel Engine.

In 2009 the investors acquired Mint Turbines of Stroud, OK, an FAA-approved repair station for Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A and T series engines, providing services and support to clients on five continents.  Mint opened a new plant in Stroud in April 2011.
