Optima Aero inc and UI helicopter CO Ltd have entered into a long term agreement in which Optima Aero will lease PT6T-3B engines to UI Helicopters CO Ltd in the context of a long term contract with South Korean Forestry Services to support Bell 412.
This new long term engine leasing service by Optima Aero, allows operators to avoid large capital investments related to engine overhauls while benefiting from reasonably priced expensed payments over a 3 to 5 year period. The program also includes the full coverage of Optima Aero’s Optimal Power Support, an industry leading hourly maintenance program. The engines were overhauled by Mint Turbines LLC and had exceptional performance on test.
“Optima Aero tailored an advantageous long term lease offering that enabled UI Helicopter to adjust to customer requirements. Once the service concept agreed, Optima Aero also delivered the engines quickly” – Jaeyeon Hwang, production director at UI Helicopters
