Asia Pacific Aerospace (APA), a Rolls-Royce FIRST network authorised maintenance, repair and overhaul centre, has signed an agreement with H&P General Aviation Services for helicopter engine support in China. The H&P Guangzhou facility will provide in-country service as an authorised service centre (ASC) for Rolls-Royce M250 and RR300 turboshaft engines.

Contract terms allow APA to subcontract maintenance service to qualified third party companies, and the agreement will provide authorised service on Rolls-Royce helicopter engines in China for the first time, giving the company an important foothold in an emerging market.

APA general manager Tony Cotroneo adds: “It has been a long-term goal of APA to have a presence in region through an approved service centre. APA has worked closely with the team at Rolls-Royce to ensure we appointed the right maintenance organisation in China and H&P ticks all the right boxes to ensure this endeavour provides Rolls-Royce customers in region the best support available.”

The M250 and RR300 engines have powered more than 260 million flight hours of service around the world. To date, more than 33,000 have been delivered to the marketplace, including nearly 80 customers in China.
