OEMs Extend Service Agreements for BBA's GES

 - March 7, 2019, 8:08 AM

BBA Aviation’s Global Engine Services group companies announced a series of extensions for their support agreements with various manufacturers at Heli-Expo.

General Electric recently renewed H+S Aviation’s authorization to maintain, repair, and overhaul CT7 turboshaft engines for another four years. The BBA company (Booth 2024) will continue to provide support for GE CT7-2, CT7-6, and CT7-8 engines that power Leonardo AW101, AW149, AW189, and EH101 helicopters, as well as the Bell 214ST and 525 and the Sikorsky S-92. H+S supports operators covered by GE’s Maintenance Cost Per Man Hour program, as well as those who are not on this plan.

Rolls-Royce M250 engine customers now have OEM-approved maintenance support for fuel controls and power turbine governor accessories through BBA’s International Governor Services (IGS) in Denver. The Rolls-Royce-authorized MRO certificate held by sister company H+S Aviation was recently extended to cover for IGS, as well as Dallas Airmotive’s facility in Singapore, for the next eight years.

Operators with Rolls-Royce RR300 engines now have new options for maintenance support for Honeywell’s fuel controls through H+S Aviation and IGS. Both H+S Aviation’s location at Portsmouth in the UK and IGS’s Denver facility have been appointed as Honeywell Authorized Warranty and Report Stations for the next five years.

Finally, H+S Aviation is now approved to support Rolls-Royce M250-C47 and M250-C40 hydromechanical units (HMU) for Bell 407 and 430 helicopters through an agreement with Triumph Engine Controls. Part of the new five-year agreement allows the company’s Portsmouth facility with exclusive approval for HMU maintenance for the Bell OH-58 Kiowa Warrior helicopter.

“Extended agreements and additional authorizations are proof of the continued trust both engine and engine accessory OEMs put in our organizations,” said Mark Stubbs, chief commercial officer of Global Engine Services. “Our customers receive the same OEM-quality products and services, but with more focused and personal support from our independently authorized service centers.”
