The Helicopter Company (THC), which was founded by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) as the first helicopter services provider authorized to conduct commercial flights in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has signed an HCare In-Service contract to cover their fleet of 20 five-bladed H145 helicopters.
The fleet of H145 helicopters was ordered in December 2021 and will be used for Helicopter Emergency Medical Services throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Five have already been delivered, and the remaining 15 are anticipated to be finished by the end of 2024.
The HCare In-Service package has been customised to meet the unique operational requirements of THC and offers them parts availability by-the-hour services to optimize the maintenance and performance of the fleet.
THC was founded by PIF as part of its strategy to activate new industries in Saudi Arabia that support the realization of Vision 2030 and generate long-term commercial returns, while also meeting the growing demand for luxury travel and tourism services. THC will begin offering its services in 2019. To improve accessibility to domestic tourist destinations and offer services like filming and aerial surveying, THC previously signed contracts to purchase 10 Airbus H125s and six ACH160 helicopters.
The new HCare offer includes three flexible solutions in addition to HCare Initial and HCare Lifetime, including HCare In-Service. For specific fleets, HCare First is offered for Airbus Corporate Helicopters aircraft, while HCare Classics is offered for the legacy fleet’s out-of-production models (H120, Dauphin, Puma and Gazelle).
