CHC Helicopter has signed an HCare Smart
services contract to cover its first medium-twin H175 helicopter, based
in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Under this nose to tail contract, Airbus
Helicopters is entrusted with providing all spare parts and
repairable items for CHC’s H175.
“As we introduce these new
aircraft to our fleet, we needed to make sure we were offering
both our operations and customers as much certainty as possible,”
said Dave Balevic, Senior Vice President, Engineering and
Operations at CHC Helicopter. “The HCare Smart plan allows us to
make sure we have the parts we need on hand as we integrate the
H175 into our global operation.”
CHC provides offshore transportation to the oil and gas
industry, emergency medical services (EMS) and search and rescue
(SAR) operations, training and maintenance, repair and overhaul
Thanks to this HCare contract, CHC will benefit from the support of the Airbus Helicopters Fleet
Center in Aberdeen, which provides access to a dedicated local
stock of parts 24/7 to ensure maximum reactivity.
“We are very proud of CHC’s confidence in our HCare FBH program to
deliver high fleet availability,” said Matthieu Louvot, Executive
Vice-President Support & Services at Airbus Helicopters. “It
positions CHC for a very successful operation in Aberdeen backed
by Airbus Helicopters’ total commitment.”
