Honeywell MPP Reins in Maintenance Costs
Honeywell’s Mechanical Protection Plan (MPP), an extended repair and replacement program, is expected to be available starting the third quarter of this year. Designed to avoid downtime while driving predictable and manageable maintenance costs, the program will cover environmental and cabin pressure control systems on select Gulfstream and Pilatus models. “Honeywell is proactively offering these types of extended repair and replacement programs and services so that operators can select the best option for managing their maintenance budgets while reducing the complexity of their operations,” said Tony Brancato, vice president, for business and general aviation aftermarket. According to Brancato, coverage includes the Gulfstream large-cabin business jets from the GIV to the G550 and the Pilatus PC-12 models. “The extended repair and replacement program offers full coverage on exchange and repair services. The service is available 24/7 for AOG emergency service with paid air freight and no-charge loaner parts. It does not require a buy-in and is fully transferrable should an aircraft be sold,” he said. The program uses a network of global supply depots and Honeywell’s Spares Exchange Program.
