Österreichischer Automobil-, Motorrad- und Touring Club (OAMTC), a non-profit association and provider of mobility services based in Austria, is the first major customer to sign a premium health monitoring contract with Safran Helicopter Engines. Under the new contract, OAMTC will be able to track engine life data, such as the early detection of low signals, prognosis analysis and maintenance plan customization, according to Safran.

OAMTC will use the service on its Arrius 2B2-powered H-135 fleet.

“It will optimize the availability of our H135 fleet and will pay off in reduction of downtime costs and therefore costs for spare helicopters,” said OAMTC CEO Marco Trefanitz.
