Avincis and Turbomeca sign global engine agreement

The Avincis Group (Avincis) has signed an agreement with Turbomeca (Safran) for support of approximately 180 helicopter engines operated by Avincis’ operating subsidiaries around the world.

Announced at Heli-Expo in Las Vegas, the memorandum of understanding extends the provision of Turbomeca’s Support By the Hour (SBH) programme to Avincis’ INAER operating companies. Bond operating companies already benefit from the SBH service. The agreement provides for support for 14 different engine variants.

Avincis Group director of fleet & engineering Martin Whittaker said: “This agreement secures engineering support for a significant part of our global helicopter fleet.  Every day, lives and livelihoods depend on the operations we fly.  We are pleased to be able to strengthen our relationship with Turbomeca and look forward to continuing to build our partnership in future.”
