Global Helicopter Service has signed a support-by-hour contract with Safran Helicopter Engines, covering an H225. This contract formalises a long term MRO and service agreement supporting a total of two Makila 2A1 engines. GHS operates the H225 on utility and humanitarian support missions in Africa.

GHS is a leading German helicopter service provider. These services include Part 145 maintenance, CAMO services, forward aeromedical evacuation, pax and freight air transport, firefighting and ATO services.

This contract will be managed by Safran Helicopter Engines Germany, which supports more than 300 operators flying in Germany, Scandinavia, Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia, with almost 2,000 engines.

Safran Helicopter Engines Germany CEO Francis Larribau says: “We are proud that GHS has placed its confidence in Safran Helicopter Engines and its SBH support contract, and we look forward to delivering it world-class services and supporting it in its most demanding missions.”
