About us

Aviaco company

Aviaco is a PART 145 workshop specialised in dismantling and the distribution of Airbus helicopter spare parts. Once the aircraft has been dismantled in our workshop, the parts are recertified and sold throughout the world. These spare parts and sub-assemblies are delivered by their quality and airworthiness documents. We operate from our premises in the south of France in Marignane.

Aviaco benefits from an international network established throughout the world to sell their spare parts. We place our workforce in the satisfaction of our customers. Thanks to a close collaboration with our suppliers, we offer a complimentary service to those offered by the OEMs. We optimise costs and processing times. We constantly renew our services.

We are fully aware that our business is based on the trust we share with our customers, based on our services. It is with this objective in mind that we seek to satisfy all your requests in full transparency. The proper functioning of our quality system is verified by independent auditors.

Our activity is part of a circular economy and a sustainable environmental vision. 



The story of Aviaco begins in 2014 after a simple weekend between friends. Someone working at Airbus Helicopters explained to Nicolas that his company was using brokers to solve their supply problems for specific spare parts.


In 2015, Nicolas Rovera, and his entrepreneurial instinct, decides to investigate more about the brokers companies of helicopter spare parts. Aviaco was born. Nicolas managed to find supply sources and to make his first sale after only a few months.


Lionel Noirault Massol, Nicolas’ friend, introduced him to Dominique Gavault who was a former senior manager at Airbus Helicopter. After a promising start and a raising turnover, Dominique Gavault decided to join Aviaco team.


Nicolas decided to call on one of his friends, Silvia Turco, to support him at Aviaco. She agreed to help for two months even if Nicolas failed in convincing her to stay. It was only at the end of 2017 that she joined the Aviaco adventure, finally convinced by its founder.


Silvia’s efficiency is stunning, the year 2018 was excellent in terms of growth. Aviaco was able to sell large volumes but the lack of spare parts had become a real limit. After a long period of research, a solution was found. This solution consisted in finding helicopters on which parts could be disassembled and then resold. This was the beginning of a new era for Aviaco.


To develop this new era, Nicolas needed to develop his network and decided to call on Dominique Gavault to be up to their ambitions. Subsequently, Aviaco became a challenge for Emmanuel Gonzalez. Recommended by Dominique Gavault, he helped in developing a financial structure in order to create the first dismantling center in France.


In 2019, the company grew and moved to new, freshly built premises of more than 2000m² and obtained the agreement PART 145 which allowed Aviaco to draw up EASA Form 1 to sell the parts previously dismantled following a dedicated process. Currently, Aviaco continues to meet its objectives and is aiming to obtain more funds to face the challenges of the years to come.
