08/04/2017 Airbus Helicopters signs New Agreement in Indonesia - Section : Article
Guillaume Faury (X 1987-S 1992) CEO of Airbus Helicopters explains “Indonesia plays an extremely important role in Airbus Helicopters’ global industrial footprint, and this expanded cooperation with our longstanding trusted partner speaks of our continued commitment to invest into Indonesia’s aerospace industry” .
Airbus Helicopters and Indonesian Aerospace (Indonesian acronym PTDI) signed a new agreement to jointly develop local support and MRO services for the helicopters that PTDI supplies to the Indonesian military and government agencies. The two companies have been cooperating for more than 40 years, during which time they have delivered some 160 helicopters to Southeast Asia’s largest country. In most cases, they have been delivered from Europe in a “green” state, for completion and mission-equipping by PTDI at its factory in Bandung.
“We are also happy to be part of a strengthened alliance that would help develop Indonesia’s technical competency in helicopter maintenance,” said Budi Santoso, CEO and president of PTDI.
Airbus Helicopters said that PTDI had “implemented a robust reorganization” of its support activities. In particular, the European company said its own subsidiary in Indonesia had become involved alongside PTDI in maintenance of the NAS-332 Super Puma helicopters that the Indonesian air force (Indonesian acronym TNU-AU) operates as Presidential and VIP transports.
The first two H225M Cougar helicopters in full combat SAR configuration were handed over to the Indonesian air force by PTDI last November. (photo)
