Alpine Air Support

By Staff Writer | January 1, 2010

Established in 1996, Alpine Air Support is an aftermarket helicopter parts supplier stocking the most widely utilized rotable, avionics and instrument parts for the AS365 Dauphin series of mid-size helicopters, including the EC155.

Based in Zurich, Switzerland, in the heart of Europe, the company is focused on serving customer needs quickly and efficiently. To achieve this goal, Alpine Air Support’s stock is constantly updated to ensure ready availability.

Parts Exchanges


There are many ways in which Alpine Air Support can keep your Dauphin helicopter flying when that “vital” spare is required for either routine stock ordering or AOG emergencies.

For rotable replacement, avionics and instruments, the company offers a comprehensive exchange program where they supply a tagged, serviceable unit on advance exchange with a core unit due back to them within 21 days.

Alpine Air Support’s sales prices reflect the actual net cost associated with the repair, thus saving money against the OEM’s list price.

“This is the key to our fundamental success,” says Alpine Air Support CEO Peter Lewis. “Saving money with our comprehensive knowledge and understanding of Dauphin parts is your guarantee of total satisfaction. We are also competing effectively with the manufacturer’s PBH program and showing genuine operating cost reductions.”

Stocked Components

It is Alpine Air Support’s aim to be the market leader in AS365 and EC155 helicopter aftermarket parts support. To this end, the company has made major and continued investments in Dauphin spares.

“Specifically, we stock every single Sagem AP-155 autopilot component and have an extensive inventory of avionics and instruments on the shelf, ready to ship,” says Lewis. “Main and tail rotor servos, engine accessories, starter generators and landing lights are but a few of the items that Alpine Air Support has available for delivery from stock.”

OEM Factory Distribution

As a factory-authorized distributor for Good- rich Actuation Systems, Sagem Défense et Sécurité‚ and Thales AES in France, Alpine has entered into key marketing agreements to ensure a steady supply of components and to maintain stock levels for “hot movers.” As a result, the company is able to pass on genuine cost savings to its customers for many OEM products, with far quicker delivery times than the factory.

Quality and Customers

Alpine Air Support’s Quality System is ASA-100 accredited and approved (based on FAA AC-00-56A). “We have a worldwide Dauphin operator and service center customer base that trusts our quality, appreciates our service and competitive pricing,” Lewis says. “Due to recent expansion of our North American customer base, we also now have a U.S. telephone number for you to contact. If you are flying a Dauphin, we should be talking!”
