Moscow / 1 July 2014
Helicopter Service Company at Russian Helicopters (a subsidiary of Oboronprom, part of State Corporation Rostec) is launching a new website for the sales of components for Russian-made helicopters. The site is now active and can be found at: http://www.hsc-copter.com/.
“This is a unique project for the Russian helicopter sector, and is implemented as part of broader work to improve after-sales and maintenance services for Russian helicopters,” Managing Director at Helicopter Service Company Dmitry Borisenko said. “The new website will greatly simplify the purchase process for those who operate Russian helicopters, saving them time and money, while also ensuring they have access to guaranteed quality from official suppliers – allowing them to plan and manage their future service and maintenance budgets for the coming years online.”
The catalogue available online covers a wide range of spare parts and supplies needed for the maintenance of helicopters developed by the Mil and Kamov design bureaux. Russian and international civilian helicopter operators can order online, and reductions apply to initial orders.
This new approach to aircraft component sales makes it possible to increase the turnover of resources and optimise the pricing and sales processes. This new website is being launched under Russian Helicopters’ broad-ranging modernisation and logistics integration strategy that is based on a full-life-cycle service approach, from design to utilisation. The system will be accessible worldwide – wherever Russian-made civilian helicopters are in operation.
Helicopter Service Company was set up in 2006 to oversee aftersales support services for Russian-made helicopters, of which there are today more than 8,500 in operation in over 100 countries worldwide. It is a Russian Helicopters company.
