Safran Helicopter Engines and Global Turbine Asia (GTA) have renewed their contract to support Makila 2A of the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF). Powering their H225M helicopters, over 30 Makila engines will continue to be covered by Safran’s Global Support Package (GSP). Since 2014, this agreement has proved its efficiency to satisfy RMAF’s requirements for optimum availability during their operations.​

This agreement is executed through GTA, the certified maintenance center supporting all military and civil engines in Malaysia. GTA, in partnership with Safran, provides helicopter engine depot repair, inventory management and technical support expertise to ensure fleet availability.

Herve Pasbecq, Managing Director of Safran Helicopter Engines Asia, said: “the contract renewal demonstrate the relationship we have built with RMAF over the years and marks a new milestone in our partnership. We are extremely proud of this continuous commitment for a GSP contract to support Makila-powered rotorcrafts as we are committed to offering world-class support to our operators”.

Under the GSP, the customer receives the guarantee to have serviceable engines available whenever they need them. Other acclaimed GSP principles include budget predictability thanks to fixed-price per flying hour and a close technical partnership with the OEM.

GSP is part of EngineLife® Services, Safran's range of solutions for helicopter engine operators.
