Safran Helicopter Engines has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Thai Aviation Industries (TAI) to support helicopter engines operated by the Thai armed forces, the company announced on 20 June.

The MoU covers support for the Makila-powered H225M and Arriel-powered fleet of H125M, H145M, AS365 N3+ and H155 in operation within the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF), army, navy, police and survey department.

The work extends a Global Support Package signed earlier this year to support Makila 2A1 engines operated by the RTAF.

The agreement will deliver guaranteed engine availability, including engine line maintenance, depot repair, inventory management and technical support expertise.

Execution will be delivered by TAI - the main aircraft repair and maintenance service provider in Thailand for the Thai armed forces and police - in partnership with Safran.
