Turbomeca (Safran group) Reinforces Proximity Support and Partnership with Air Methods Corporation

Orlando, March 6, 2011

In support of Air Methods Corporation(*) loyalty and commitment, Turbomeca has agreed to a ten year dedicated customer support partnership to provide cost control and tailored services in support of their growing fleet.

Air Methods has been a loyal Turbomeca customer for many years and operates approximately 220 Turbomeca engines (Arriel 1, Arriel 2, and Arrius 2 variants), operated out numerous bases in 43 states across the U.S.

The partnership and agreement were solidified by the successful development of a maintenance facility at the Air Methods West Mifflin, PA location that will play a key role in the reduction of direct maintenance costs and success of the overall agreement.

Russ Spray, President and CEO of Turbomeca USA states "Turbomeca is excited to mark this milestone in our professional relationship with Air Methods. This new agreement will bring our two companies closer together with the goal of maximizing the responsiveness of our support while bringing meaningful added value to an important customer".
