Visit us at Helitech 2014!

“TRADEWIND INTERNATIONAL, LLC, is attending Heli-Tech for the first time, and we are excited to be an exhibitor at Europe’s largest helicopter show!”

“At Heli-Expo in Anaheim, California, earlier this year, we were approached by representatives from Heli-Tech promoting the show, who made us aware of an all-inclusive, first-time exhibitor package promotion for the USA Pavilion. As a small company, with a limited promotional budget, an all-inclusive stand in the U.S.A. Pavilion appealed to us, Tom Huismann, Director of Business Development said.

“This is our first international show as an exhibitor, and we are in a prime location at Stand N70A in the U.S.A. Pavilion!, Huismann said. We are truly an international company—from sourcing our inventory, to serving the operators of light and medium turbine around the world. Attending Helitech gives us a perfect opportunity to increase our name recognition, meet face-to-face with our European clients, establish new relationships, and to create new opportunities for purchasing parts, accessories, complete inventories, and airframes.”

TRADEWIND INTERNATIONAL, LLC, is Celebrating 24 Years!

TRADEWIND INTERNATIONAL, LLC, is celebrating 24 years of service to the helicopter industry! We are a small, veteran-owned business of fourteen employees, located in Janesville, Wisconsin, USA, specializing in the resale of aircraft parts to light and medium turbine helicopter operators. Our 19,000 square foot facility was specifically built for the purpose of receiving, housing and shipping aircraft parts, and includes an office, heated parts room, and a cold storage area to properly store and protect our inventory.

We are constantly adding to our inventory by obtaining parts and accessories, and complete inventories from a variety of reputable sources. Our inventory includes factory new parts; excess inventory, and consignments from FAA Part 145 operators. We have an extensive library of illustrated parts catalogs to properly identify all items added to our inventory. All parts are entered noting purchase order, condition and source. Serviceable and overhauled parts are tagged by FAA-certified personnel, or are in new packaging from the original factory source.

All sales are subject to inspection and acceptance of the purchaser upon receipt. All sales invoices are maintained for a minimum of five calendar years. Although we are not a certified manufacturer, or certified FAA Repair Station, we do strive to properly control the inflow, storage, and outflow of parts in a manner acceptable to the industry we serve.

We welcome requests for quotes, and our inventory is listed on many parts inventory services, including Component Control, ILS, Parts Base, and others. Our inventory can also be searched on our website,

MISSION STATEMENT:  Tradewind International, LLC, serves the owners and operators of light and medium turbine powered helicopters around the world. Our large inventory of quality parts, from reputable sources, helps to keep legacy helicopters in the air, doing what they were built to do. Customer satisfaction is our goal through responsive, courteous service, and by providing to our clients the parts they need, on a timely basis, and at a competitive price.


Tradewind International, LLC, a world-wide buyer and supplier of helicopter parts, has accepted two SA-365N Dauphin helicopters from Norway where they last saw service with CHC Helicopter. EI-MIP C/N 6119 built in 1984 and G-BLUM C/N 6101 built in 1985 will be parted out and will supply parts to keep others in the SA-365N fleet flying. Although the helicopters arrived minus main rotors and engines, the airframes, interiors and instrument panels are very complete, including avionics.

Soon after arrival of the two SA-365N Dauphin helicopters, Tradewind International accepted a wide variety new, and high-quality as-removed AS332 Super Puma parts from Bristow Helicopters in United Kingdom, and accepted Bell 206 parts from Bristow’s facility in Louisiana, USA.

We purchase, and sell quality new, overhauled, serviceable, and as-removed traceable helicopter parts to customers world-wide.


We maintain an inventory of over one millions items! Our large inventory includes new, overhauled, serviceable and as removed helicopter parts, along with some fixed wing airplane parts and engine spares with traceability. Our inventory includes over 80,000 line items, in-stock and ready to ship, for most makes and models of light and medium turbine helicopters produced in the United States and Western Europe. Click on Check Stock to see if we have the parts you need. You can also click on Specials to see items that may not be listed in our inventory.
