6-OSF_St_Anthonys"Helicopter Specialties has been an asset us, providing field support with Bell certified and trained mechanics when help was needed the most. With HSI’s extensive avionics department and experienced technicians they performed avionics upgrades on our four Bell 230 aircraft in an “as promised” time frame in the most professional manner with post installation warranty service. As an EMS program, minimizing our downtime is a high priority, and HSI, having come up through the helicopter business from the ground up, understands our needs. Whether it’s field support, avionics, or parts HSI is an integral part of OSF Aviation’s support system and is there when we need them."
