Rolls-Royce is broadening the scope of its CorporateCare power-by-the-hour support package for BR725 engines powering Gulfstream G650 ultra-long-range business jets to include three additional services.
The UK manufacturer will provide temporary alternative lift for any BR725 operator whose aircraft requires an unscheduled engine change as part of the CorporateCare package.
R-R will also cover labour costs as well as parts for scheduled A and C checks performed at authorised service centres.
In the third enhancement - believed to be an industry first - R-R introduces 3D interactive technical publications for BR725 CorporateCare customers via an Apple iPad app.
R-R celebrated the 50th anniversary of its CorporateCare offering at the 2012 NBAA convention, and more than 1,300 aircraft of all types are covered under the programme, says Steve Friedrich, vice-president sales and marketing for civil small and medium engines. He adds that "well over 80%" of the G650s delivered last year have their engines covered by CorporateCare.
Friedrich says demand for large, long-range business jets has remained strong, despite weakened demand for aircraft at the lower end of the market.
"The market has remained very strong. There is a lot of global interest," he says.
