Rolls-Royce enhances corporatecare® services
Monday, 14 May 2012
Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, today announced an enhancement of CorporateCare®, the Group’s business jet engine aftermarket support service.
The service will now include labour for line replaceable units and borescope inspections for life limited parts required under airframer maintenance manual (Chapter 5) requirements.
The enhancement will provide Rolls-Royce with more in-service engine data, further supporting engine health monitoring (EHM), which tracks the performance of engines using onboard sensors. This will benefit operators, in terms of increased engine availability, and ability to plan costs.
Stephen Friedrich, Rolls-Royce, Vice President – Sales & Marketing – Civil Small & Medium Engines, said: “This enhancement of CorporateCare will bring considerable value to our customers and further improves our seamless high-quality support wherever our customers are located.”
Rolls-Royce CorporateCare is the most comprehensive corporate aircraft engine maintenance management programme available for new and in-service Rolls-Royce BR725, BR710, Tay and AE 3007 engines.
CorporateCare currently includes scheduled and unscheduled shop visits expenses; all parts expenses incurred during line maintenance; engine removal and installation and reinstallation; lease engine expenses; freight; training; technical publications; and EHM.
