Able Aerospace Services, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company, has signed a long-term contract renewal with Air Evac Lifeteam, part of Air Medical Group Holdings – the largest air ambulance service in the U.S. The contract designates Able as the exclusive service provider for dynamic component repair and overhaul services for Air Evac Lifeteam’s fleet of 128 Bell Helicopter 206 aircraft.
“Able has enjoyed a positive and productive relationship with Air Evac for more than 15 years,” said Gabriel Massey, General Manager for Able Aerospace Services. “This renewal is a great confirmation of our past successes and the many opportunities we have ahead of us.”
The new contract extends a previous five-year contract naming Able as sole support for Air Evac’s Bell 206 fleet. During that five-year period, Able provided maintenance services on more than 7,000 components across every aircraft in Air Evac’s fleet.
Air Evac Lifeteam President Seth Myers is pleased with the contract extension.
“Able is a valued partner, helping us to provide access to people in need of a higher level of emergency health care,” Myers said. “This contract extension signifies our faith in Able and its highly qualified employees.”
“Air Evac is a prime example of how operators across the world can benefit from our relationship with Bell Helicopter,” added Massey. “As a Bell Certified Service Center and a member of the Textron group of companies, we are part of a very a proactive network of Bell experts – all focused on providing support at every level of the customer experience, from day one that a new Bell helicopter is purchased through to the sundowning of a legacy aircraft.”
