VIH Aerospace (VIHA –, a leading provider of helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services announces that just one month after launching its Limited Time — Introductory Pricing Program for the MCP01 Master Caution Panel replacement for the Bell 212; it has received its first order.

‘We are excited to announce that United States-based operator, TEMSCO Helicopters Inc (TEMSCO — is the inaugural customer for the MCP01,’ says Arne Arneson, General Manager with VIHA. ‘TEMSCO is a well-established and highly reputable fleet operator that covers a diverse range of mission profiles. Therefore, we believe TEMSCO is ideally suited as the launch customer for the MCP01 Master Caution Panel. Through the performance of their operations, we are confident they will validate what we have identified as key attributes that make the MCP01 a vastly superior product to the Original Equipment Manufacturer’s panel; offering a number of features that ultimately lend to enhanced performance, reliability and safety.’

Arneson explains that VIHA’S Introductory Pricing Program was developed to incentivize operators to utilize the MCP01 Master Caution Panel which, when compared to the OEM panel, provides Bell 212 operators with a variety of improvements including flight system data capture and recording accuracy, and enhanced operational readiness and improved earning potential resulting from substantially less helicopter downtime due to panel failure. Arneson is confident that as the MCP01 panel and its value-driving attributes becomes more widely-known and adopted by market leaders like TEMSCO; utilization of the system throughout the Bell 212 community will be widespread.
