Helicopter Travel Munich has signed a 12-year Fleet Management Program agreement with Pratt & Whitney Canada. The agreement covers 18 PW206B2 engines powering HTM's fleet of H135 aircraft.

“Our PW206B engines provide us with exceptional performance and reliability,” says MD Bernd Brucherseifer. “This agreement allows our engines to have access to OEM-quality work scopes, repairs and materials that will keep them in top operating condition.”

Founded in 1997, HTM is one of the largest helicopter companies in Germany with IFR and offshore approval, and also manages its own flying school. The company is responsible for 23 helicopters at six locations in Germany and Austria and is planning to grow this fleet further.

Tailored specifically for HTM, the programme will provide personalised support to meet both its technical and commercial needs. P&WC's FMP is designed to be a flexible, high value engine management solution that delivers lower operating costs and simplifies fleet operations management. It also serves as a financial planning tool supporting cash flow management.
