BELL AND PT DIRGANTARA INDONESIA CELEBRATE 70TH AIRCRAFT DELIVERY
Thursday, December 5, 2019
FORT WORTH, Texas -- Bell and PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI), an Indonesian state owned aerospace company, recently celebrated the 70th aircraft delivery from Bell to PTDI.

The aircraft, a Bell 412EPI, is part of a nine aircraft order from the Indonesian Army earlier this year. Dignitaries at the event include senior leaders from the Indonesian Armed Forces, Canadian Ambassador Cameron McKay, US Deputy Chief of Mission James Dayringer and Singapore Ambassador to Indonesia Anil Nayar.

Bell and PTDI’s relationship goes back more than 30 years. In 2012, Bell and PTDI signed an Industrial and Commercial Agreement which enabled the two companies to expand their support and services in Indonesia to Bell helicopter operators. The agreement was subsequently renewed in 2016. In addition, during the celebration, the Indonesian Military Airworthiness Authority presented the Bell 412EPI certification to Bell.

Bell has been present in Indonesia for more than 50 years with an estimated one hundred and ten aircraft currently in operation.

AIRBUS HELICOPTERS SIGNS GLOBAL SUPPORT CONTRACT FOR TIGER HELICOPTERS
Tuesday, December 3, 2019
MARIGNANE -- Airbus Helicopters and OCCAR (Organisation Conjointe de Coopération en matière d'Armement / Organisation for Joint Armament Co-operation) have signed a tri-lateral Global Support Contract aimed at boosting the availability rate of the Tigers in service in the French, German, and Spanish Armies. With this long-term support agreement, Tiger readiness and supportability will be secured for the next decade and beyond. The contract covers critical items such as continuous improvement and obsolescence treatment as well as securing repair and spares capabilities with all vendors involved. In addition, it provides for the individual needs of each customer in line with their operational and deployment scenarios. For instance, in France, the agreement guarantees parts availability up to 98% and provides for the simplification of logistics as Airbus Helicopters will also directly take over the provisioning of new parts, as well as repaired parts and other expendables.

At present 183 Tigers have been delivered to France, Germany, Spain, and Australia, and have accumulated over 130,000 flight hours to date. First deployed by the French Army in Afghanistan in 2009, and then shortly followed by the German and Spanish Armies, the Tiger continues to demonstrate its essential role on theatres of operation as a highly versatile, stealthy, and maneuverable attack helicopter.
