Dee Tullos founded Uniflight in 1982. Dee spent over 45 years in the aviation maintenance and service industry, 20 of those years dedicated to the support of Bell Helicopters. In 1999, Dee sold Uniflight to Greg A’slinger. Greg entered the industry as a helicopter pilot and had an extensive background as a FAA Part 135 Air Carrier. He also provided Electronic News Gathering (ENG) service to several television and radio stations in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. Greg relocated Uniflight to Grand Prairie and turned it into a full service center, adding the Bell 222, 230 and 407 approvals to Uniflight’s Part 145 certificate and Bell CSF authorization. Greg’s attention to detail and focus on customer service remains a core part of the culture at Uniflight today.
In 2008, Uniflight was purchased by Hawke Capital. With this new ownership, certifications for the AS350/355, the MD 500 Series and the Agusta 109 were added to the Repair Station Part 145 certificate. During 2009, Uniflight was approved by American Eurocopter as a Customer Service Center, initially with the AS350/355 designation, but with an agreement to expand to the full line of Eurocopter products in support of customer needs.
