Safran is proud to announce that DRF Luftrettung is its first major customer to use its Premium Health Monitoring service through Airbus’ Helionix avionic. The Health Monitoring service for helicopter engines allows customers to track engine life data and thus reduce unplanned events. Engine life is improved through the early detection of low signals, prognosis analysis and maintenance plan customization.
Safran Health Monitoring will work with data downloaded through the Airbus H145 Helionix and H225 M-ARMS data collection systems. DRF Luftrettung is going to use this service in its Arriel 2E-powered H145.
Timo Demeter, DRF Luftrettung CAMO commented: “We look forward to receiving from Safran engines experts support recommendations and performance analysis tailored to our mission requirements. Premium Health Monitoring will have a positive impact on our maintenance costs and will optimize the availability of our fleet.”
Olivier Le Merrer, Safran Helicopter Engines Support and Services EVP, added “We are proud to welcome DRF Luftrettung among Health Monitoring users. The capacity to connect our service to H145 Helionix avionics and the demonstrated capacity to take care of H225 M-ARMS engine data, will bring lots of benefits to our customers and we are now ready to invite more of them to join this service. Over 350 operators have subscribed since its launch in October 2017”.
Health Monitoring is available at the ‘Essential’ level, where the customer is responsible for data collection and analysis, and the ‘Premium’ one where maintenance recommendations by Safran experts are tailored to the customer’s fleet, missions and usage rates. H145 Helionix and H225 M-ARMS enlarge the data collection systems compatible with Safran Health Monitoring services.
Compatibility with Airbus data collection systems will be gradually rolled out this year. Its availability may vary depending on engine variants and organization compatibility. New features will also be released throughout the year to continue to provide more reactivity and autonomy to customers.
