Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), has appointed Helicopter Services Company (HSC) in Moscow, Russia as a designated maintenance facility (DMF) for Kazan Ansat PW207K civil helicopter engine customers. HSC will support customers in Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. HSC will offer engine maintenance training, line maintenance and mobile repair team (MRT) services. HSC will also keep an inventory of new spare parts from Pratt & Whitney for line maintenance to best support customers.
“Listening to the needs of our customers and bringing them the right solutions is of the utmost importance to Pratt & Whitney,” said Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam, vice president of customer service at Pratt & Whitney. “With the rapid growth of civil helicopters in Russia, we want to ensure our customers have more local and personalized service. Helicopter emergency medical services (HEMS) is a growing priority in the region. This is one way we are supporting HEMS and other critical missions.”
Since Pratt & Whitney first powered the Ansat helicopter more than 20 years ago, Ansat has grown its presence in major cities across the country through new missions such as VIP and HEMS. Today there are more than 100 Ansat helicopters operating in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Additionally, Pratt & Whitney engines currently power several domestic aircraft in the region including the Ilyushin Il-114 and the upcoming Irkut MC-21, which is currently in flight testing with the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engine. Pratt & Whitney will also power the upcoming VR-Technologies LLC VRT500 light, single-engine helicopter.
PW207K customers can contact Pratt & Whitney or HSC to speak with a representative about the company’s engines and services, including our Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) engine program for used helicopters, our Fleet Service Plan (FSP) for customers with growing fleets of two to five helicopters, and our Eagle Service™ Plan (ESP™) New Engine Option (NEO) for customers who want even more choices for engine overhaul and exchange.
