Ex-Change Parts has signed an agreement with the Swedish Defence Material to acquire six AS332 M1 Super Puma helicopters, along with engines, components, spare parts, GSE and special tools, the company announced on 9 October.

The transaction was approved by Swedish and French authorities in July 2018 and delivery to Ex-Change Parts will be completed in October.

The company will now coordinate with AS332 maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service providers to refurbish and configure the helicopters to specific customer requirements.

Elmir Andersson, CEO, Ex-Change Parts, said: ‘This is a great project that fits Ex-Change Parts well. We are now able to offer a complete and very cost-effective helicopter system to military operators worldwide. The Super Puma is a much proven and reliable helicopter with excellent supportability from both OEM and independent MRO suppliers, guaranteeing high operational availability and low operating costs.

‘We have worked hard over the last two years to make this project possible. This includes additional export controls as well as airworthiness regulations on handling civilian and military material as stipulated by OEM Airbus Helicopters and civil aviation authorities including EASA.’
