CHC Helicopter has signed a four-year MRO support contract with Safran Helicopter Engines. The contract formalises a maintenance, repair and overhaul and standard exchanges agreement supporting Arriel 1S, 2S1 and 2S2 engines for CHC's S-76 fleet and the Arriel 2C powering the AS365 Dauphin. Roughly 70 engines are covered by the agreement.

“Our partnership will allow us to best support the global overhaul, repair and support needs of our operation with onsite support,” says senior VP of engineering and ops at CHC Dave Balevic. “This contract builds upon our existing relationship with Safran and the extension of our licence for the Makila engine from our Heli-One branch in Stavanger, Norway.”

Safran's executive VP of support and service Olivier Le Merrer adds: “It is with great pride that we enter into this partnership with CHC Helicopters. We appreciate the opportunity to support its S-76 and Dauphin fleets. Delivering best-in-class solutions will be a top priority for us.”

This contract will be managed by the corporate support department of Safran Helicopter Engines through a worldwide support steering model. CHC engines will be repaired at centres in Tarnos (France), Grand Prairie (United States) and Xerem (Brazil).
