H+S Aviation and Rolls-Royce Sign RR300 Support Agreement
Anaheim, California…February 25, 2014… H+S Aviation and Premier Turbines, BBA Aviation companies, have been selected by Rolls-Royce Corporation as Authorized Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Centers (AMROC) for the RR300 engine. The long-term agreement runs through 2021 and provides RR300 operators with a responsive global maintenance service network with major repair and overhaul facilities in North America and the UK.
“We have a long-standing partnership with Rolls-Royce dating back to 1959 and we are pleased to add the RR300 to the list of engines we support for them,” commented BBA Aviation Aftermarket Services Vice President Business Development, Mike McCauley. “Repair and overhaul of helicopter engines is a key element of our long-term growth strategy and this authorization complements our established in-house capabilities with the Rolls-Royce M250.”
The RR300 currently powers the Robinson R66 helicopter which has gained rapid acceptance among operators. “We’ve seen the R66 fleet build up quickly since its introduction in 2010,” commented H+S Aviation Managing Director, Mark Taylor. “We anticipate the need for strong field service support and repair capability as the fleet continues its rapid expansion. Our reputation for M250 support, expert field service technicians and a proven in-house Operator Maintenance training school means we have the resources needed to provide comprehensive RR300 service globally. We believe RR300 customers will be pleased with our extensive service network and commitment to total customer care”
