ADAC Heliservice has signed a support-by-the-hour contract renewal with Safran Helicopter Engines for the engines powering ADAC Luftrettung and ANWB Medical Air Assistance H145 helicopter fleets. This SBH contract covers in-service support and MRO for around 50 Arriel 2E engines.

ADAC Heliservice, a subsidiary of the non-profit aeromedical operator ADAC Luftrettung, is a leading German helicopter MRO company. ANWB Medical Air Assistance is a HEMS operator based in the Netherlands.

The contract will be managed by Safran Helicopter Engines Germany in Hamburg, which monitors and supports 300 helicopter operators in Germany, Northern Europe, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, for a total fleet of 2,000 engines.

"We are delighted to renew this partnership with ADAC Heliservice, which supports ADAC Luftrettung and ANWB Medical Air Assistance operations, leading actors in helicopter rescue and medical transport in Germany and the Netherlands. This demonstrates the relevance of our SBH model for these operators, who carry out particularly demanding missions," says Safran director of support and services Mathieu Albert.

SBH provides visibility on engine operating costs and smoothes financial flows, while making scheduled and unscheduled maintenance operations more flexible. It is integrated into a range of high value-added digital services such as health monitoring, expert link and online SBH.
