Airbus Helicopters signs first HCare Smart contract in Brazil
14 December 2016
An operator of two H155 helicopters for executive transportation based in São Paulo has become the first Brazilian civilian customer to sign an HCare Smart contract with Airbus Helicopters.
This first contract of the Smart line of HCare shows the potential of the Brazilian market for these services in light and medium aircraft.
HCare Smart offers maintenance services with payment per flight hour, allowing greater budget control by the customer, and optimized spare parts availability via direct access to Airbus Helicopters' worldwide stock.
"We chose the HCare Smart program to better control our expenses and to improve aircraft availability, with the goal of improving our overall performance as an aviation company. Given our current experience with Safran's engine hours program, we are sure that the result will be greater financial control, better AOG service and better planning, "explains Álvaro Stamato, the company's chief pilot.
HCare Smart solutions are well suited to meet the needs of local customers for scheduled and non-programmed maintenance on aircraft parts and components.
The customer has operated the H155 mainly in the Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo areas for more than 15 years.
