Heli-One continues support for Pelita's Sikorskys
Heli-One has supported Pelita Air Service's Sikorsky helicopters since 2012, providing maintenance and repair services under a support contract. Pelita's latest S-76C++ types have been added to the agreement.
Pelita Air Service has added three aircraft to its Heli-One support plan.

Indonesian operator Pelita Air Service has signed a contract with Heli-One for the provision of MRO services on its fleet of three S-76C++ rotorcraft. The company has an existing maintenance support plan with Heli-One, and the latest deal brings the total number of aircraft supported under the plan to seven. This addition is buoyed by Pelita's recently-awarded offshore and medevac support contracts in Indonesia. Pelita will benefit from Heli-One's comprehensive support of its S-76 aircraft including airframe, major/minor components, avionics, rescue equipment and rotor blades.

Established in 1970, Pelita has five bases and a fleet of rotary and fixed wing aircraft providing transport services for various sectors including offshore, medevac, cargo, passenger, VVIP and firefighting. Its helicopter fleet includes a range of aircraft types, including the Bell 412, Bell 430, BO105 and Sikorsky S-76 C++ and A variants.

Heli-One has supported Pelita Air Service's S-76 aircraft since May 2012, providing a variety of maintenance and structural repair services under their existing comprehensive support contract. This includes airframe, components, avionics, rotor blades, rescue equipment and ad hoc design support. Heli-One Canada is an authorised S-76 customer support centre and gearbox overhaul facility. Its design and engineering team has developed hundreds of major, minor and repair modifications for the aircraft type, including a comprehensive flight display modernisation for older variants.

”We are excited to support Pelita's fleet growth with industry-leading maintenance offerings,” says Heli-One president Eddie Lane. “As we are currently supporting its S-76C++ aircraft, we have developed a collaborative working relationship with the goal of keeping its fleet flying at the highest levels of safety. Our S-76 technicians are looking forward to supporting Pelita's aircraft through innovative solutions and quality work for years to come.”
