Airbus Helicopters’ HCare Smart programme has been selected by HELICAL of New Caledonia for its H125 helicopter, the company announced on 11 April.

With this contract, HELICAL has become the first South Pacific operator to use the service. HELICAL deploys its H125 helicopter for nickel mining and drilling prospecting in New Caledonia’s mountainous regions.

Under the HCare service, scheduled and unscheduled events are covered by a dedicated worldwide original equipment manufacturer pool to ensure higher fleet availability and maintenance budget control.

Thierry Epplin, chief pilot at HELICAL, said: ‘Airbus Helicopters’ parts-by-the-hour contract allows our spares stock to be reduced and lets us better manage our maintenance costs.’
