Share Article

Heliproducts Industries Ltd., a worldwide helicopter supplier based in Pitt Meadows, BC Canada, announced today that they will be launching a new Engine Exchange Program at this year's HAI Heli-Expo Convention in Anaheim.

For the Eurocopter AS350 series helicopter, and its variety of operational roles, we expect that each customer's requirement will be different. Options are the key ingredient here. What suits one customer, may not suit the other. We can provide the support with a sensible solution to the operator's specific needs.

Heliproducts Industries Ltd., a worldwide helicopter supplier based in Pitt Meadows, BC Canada, announced today that they will be launching a new Engine Exchange Program at this year's HAI Heli-Expo Convention. This year the Helicopter Association International (HAI) will host its 61st annual exposition and convention in Anaheim from February 22 to 24. With over 70 nations in attendance, this year's Heli-Expo will be the largest Helicopter Industry Show of the year.

Heliproducts Industries Ltd. will offer an exchange program and outright kit sales for Eurocopter AS350 helicopters. All owners of the AS350 series will be able to fly to the Heliproducts facilities and exchange with credit towards their current engine (prorated based on the time remaining and the engine value). Heliproducts can provide, at the customers request, cost budgets and direct operating costs comparisons between multiple engine kits and upgrades. Customers will fly out with an exchanged engine which may include an STC installation and Honeywell TSO 0.0 LTS 101 engine. Stand-alone kits will also be available for customers who want to install a conversion engine themselves. Aircraft can be turned around in as little as two weeks, subject to availability and customer requirements.

As an example, the AS350 helicopter with the LTS 101-700D2 engine option, will burn 6 to 8% less fuel based on standard conditions and cost less to operate. The LTS engine also has more Ng reserve and more T4 reserve for better Hot and High performance. In addition, all LTS series engines are field maintainable and can be repaired by the owner / operator. Customers will benefit from the reduced operating costs and increased performance value of the LTS 101-700D2 engine.

"We are looking forward to the upcoming HAI Heli-Expo, this will be an excellent opportunity to launch our new Engine Exchange program for LTS 101-700D2 engines," said Mark Steen, President of Heliproducts Industries Ltd. "For the Eurocopter AS350 series helicopter, and its variety of operational roles, we expect that each customer's requirement will be different. Options are the key ingredient here. What suits one customer, may not suit the other. We can provide the support with a sensible solution to the operator's specific needs."
