Panalpina Christens Northeast Center
To meet increased customer demand, British Columbia-based helicopter shipper Panalpina has added a service center in the Northeast. The company has hired Peter Baldauf, a helicopter load-out specialist, to its Heliship team at Hartford/Bradley Airport in Connecticut. Baldauf’s experience and location will allow the company to ship large helicopters, including the Sikorsky S-92, using cargoplanes like the Antonov 124, which can use Bradley Airport. The center will be the company’s third, joining facilities it operates in Vancouver and New Orleans.
