JSSI Launches Parts-Only Programs For AW139 and Bell 429 Helicopters

Heli-Expo 2016 – Louisville, Kentucky — Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), the leading provider of hourly cost maintenance programs for the business aviation industry, announced its Parts-Only Program is now available for the Finmeccanica (formerly AgustaWestland) AW139 and the Bell 429.

“Last year we introduced the Parts-Only Program for the AS350 market and we are now excited to expand this offering to the AW139 and Bell 429,” commented Neil Book, President and CEO for JSSI. “As the leader in hourly cost maintenance programs, with more than 1,700 aircraft on a JSSI program, our objective is to deliver a program that meets the needs of our broad and diverse customer base.”

The new JSSI Parts-Only Program for the AW139 and Bell 429 offers three coverage options, coverage for the life limited components, on-condition components and avionics. Owners and operators may select any or all of these coverages for a single hourly rate. Unlike other ‘parts only’ programs, the JSSI Program is perpetual in nature and is the perfect solution for lenders and lessors looking to address betterment deferment provisions. In addition to the standard perpetual offering, JSSI can provide this Program at a 5 or 10 year term or at an owner/operator specified term. JSSI will also work with clients to add mission-specific equipment to further tailor the program specifically to their helicopter.

JSSI Helicopter Program Specialist, Ray Weiser, commented, “The challenges for helicopter operators to source quality parts at a fair price continue to increase. Our Parts-Only Program takes the risk out this critical maintenance piece of the operating cost puzzle, and it is a great

opportunity for these operators to get to know JSSI and all the value we bring to support the market, especially during challenging times.”

In addition to the new Parts-Only options for the Finmeccanica AW139 and Bell 429 series helicopters, JSSI provides Engine and Airframe coverage, as well as comprehensive Tip-to-Tail® Program coverage. There are JSSI Hourly Cost Maintenance Programs available for approximately 350 different aircraft, covering virtually all business jets, turboprops and helicopters operating today.
