Able Aerospace launches Preferred™ overhaul program

March 02, 2011
March 2, 2011, Pheonix, Ariz. – Operators of Eurocopter AS350 and Bell 407 and 206 helicopters can realize overhaul and repair savings ranging from 35 to 70 percent using Able Preferred™, a new program from Able Aerospace Services.

Able Preferred offers a full range of safe, FAA-approved dynamic component overhauls for these helicopters. Able Preferred overhauls are an alternative to OEM solutions that scrap expensive out-of-service parts and replace them with new. Able also provides a cost-effective alternative to third-party MRO service stations due to its “captive shop” approach, with all of the work performed in-house, with little to no outsourcing. In fact, Able frequently performs work for third-party repair stations that don’t have the capabilities to perform the repairs themselves.

“We strive to stay in synch with the market and with customer preference — that’s why we continue to focus on providing value-driven solutions at a time customers need them most,” said Lee Benson, president and CEO. “We want operators to know that there is a safe, cost- effective alternative to OEM and third-party solutions.”

In addition to reducing aircraft operating costs, Able Preferred overhaul programs are designed to decrease turnaround time drastically, and put operators back in control of repair schedules. Able stocks the world’s largest third-party inventory for both Bell 407 and Eurocopter AS350 spares and offers exchanges on Able Preferred Components and Line Maintenance items like Bell 407 and 206 Main Rotor Heads and AS350 Main Rotor Masts.

“Our goal is to keep aircraft in the air longer with better reliability and at a fraction of the operating cost,” said Benson. “The Able Preferred Overhaul Program provides another way for us to achieve that goal.”
