Air Center Helicopters of Fort Worth, Texas, has signed up for multi-year PBH support on its fleet of H225 helicopters from MRO specialist Heli-One. The contract covers airframe and a combination of dynamics, small components and avionics. By leveraging Heli-One's H225 inventory and expertise, Air Center will be covered for planned and unplanned events, thus reducing aircraft downtime.

Air Center Helicopters operates a fleet of aircraft including Airbus H225, AS332, Bell 412 and Bell 407. It provides helicopter services for civil and government purposes including charter flights, utility work, cargo transportation, powerline maintenance, tourism, surveillance, SAR, medevac, hoist operations and film/photography support.

Heli-One has extensive experience supporting the H225 and other Super Puma variants. Its capabilities for the H225 include all levels of inspection/checks, dynamics repair and overhaul, rotor blades, avionics, and design and engineering. Heli-One has also certified at least 20 STCs for this aircraft type with the ability to adapt other modifications for the H225. Its short turnaround times and logistics network will help Air Center minimise aircraft downtime and expand operational availability.

“We are excited to support Air Center's H225," says Heli-One president Eddie Lane. "We have extensive experience in supporting this versatile aircraft type and we aim to put all our gained knowledge toward's their advantage. Air Center provides valuable helicopter services for its customers and we are ready to support its needs, planned or not."
