StandardAero has signed a new deal with US air ambulance operator Air Methods to supply support to its fleet of Airbus Helicopters AS350 and EC130 dynamic components.
The three-year agreement will see StandardAero provide repairs, light and major overhaul, testing and modification of dynamic components for the fleet.
Leo Morrissette, Senior Vice-President of Aviation Operations for Air Methods, said that StandardAero’s customer support has been ‘perfect’. “We have received 100 per cent on time delivery to date since the beginning of this contract, with all cost targets and efficiency targets being met – I’m not sure we could ask for more,” he said.
“This contract renewal reinforces our strong commitment to Air Methods and we are honoured to once again be entrusted with supporting their fleet,” said Manny Atwal, Vice-President of Sales, Marketing and Business Development for Commercial Helicopter Services at StandardAero.
StandardAero is Airbus Helicopters Repair Center approved, offering extensive dynamic component repair and overhaul capabilities for H125/AS350, AS355 and H130/EC130 helicopter models. It is also able to provide rental and exchange assets. In November 2017 its amended licence meant that its capabilities were extended past North America, with services being offered to customers worldwide and conducted at StandardAero’s Vancouver, Canada and Almondbank, Australia bases.
