“Yellowhead Helicopters, Ltd. Surpasses 1000 Hours of Flying Time on Eagle 407HP Fleet in Under One Year“
In February 2017, Yellowhead’s two Eagle 407HP helicopters surpassed 1000 hours of flying time in less than one year, a milestone attributed to Eagle’s seamless installation of Honeywell HTS900 engines, 24-7 technical guidance, and world-class aftermarket support.
“We ordered the two upgraded 407HP helicopters in April 2016 for the extra power and payload they offer, fuel savings and reduced CO2 emissions, and the enhanced safety of the dual channel FADEC (full authority digital engine control),” explains Jacob Forman, President and CEO of Yellowhead. “Over the last 10 months, we have been extremely happy with the performance of these aircrafts, in particular during our busy 2016 high altitude exploration season, finding the HTS900 engine powerful, reliable and precise.”
“As part of our Worldwide Fleet Management platform, we strive to provide every client with an unparalleled range of top-end helicopters, service and customized solutions,” explains Barry Kohler, President and CEO of Eagle Copters Ltd. “We work closely with customers like Yellowhead, understanding that a durable and reliable machine is only one part of the business; close communication and access to parts, support and expertise is what supports them in their mission and avoids AOG at all costs.”
