Premier Turbines and H+S Aviation, 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 are pleased to add the RR300 to the list of engines we support for Rolls-Royce,” commented Doug Meador, President of Dallas Airmotive, parent company of Premier Turbines. “This authorization complements our established in-house capabilities for the Rolls-Royce M250 engine and is a key facet of a long-term growth strategy to increase our helicopter service offerings.”
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 Mr. Meador. “We anticipate the need for global field service support and repair capability as the fleet continues its rapid expansion. Our experience providing comprehensive M250 support globally, coupled with the capabilities of our sister company H+S Aviation means we have the resources needed to support RR300 operators worldwide. We believe RR300 customers will be pleased with our extensive service network and commitment to total customer care”
