Airbus Helicopters (Booth No. 523) is introducing a “pay as you fly” component support program (CSP) for operators of new and used helicopters. The program features “aggressive” flat per-flight-hour charges billed monthly and has a flexible buy-in. It includes customized customer maintenance forecasting. The Airbus CSP will initially be available for all EC120, EC130, AS350, AS355, EC135, EC145, EC155, AS365, AS332 and EC225 models.
The CSP promises to help reduce delays for operators, with features such as direct access to parts inventory, 24/7 AOG support, parts located in Airbus’s global supply chain, a dedicated technical support network and personalized maintenance forecasting.
