New maintenance contract for Turbomeca (Safran) in China
Safran Turbomeca and the helicopter operator Skyway signed a SBH (Support By The Hour®) contract and a memorandum of understanding on June 15, 2015. This maintenance contract will cover a fleet of three helicopters powered with Arriel turbines and may eventually be extended to an additional 10 helicopters.
After 40 years of cooperation with Chinese industry and with over 500 engines in service in the country, Turbomeca has firmly established its presence in China. As a result, one out of every two Chinese helicopters is equipped with engines manufactured by Turbomeca or under license.
