Engine-maker Rolls-Royce comes to NBAA on something of a roll with its CorporateCare program having captured another 90 contracts this year. The company - at booth 2227 - now has more than 475 aircraft under CorporateCare or other flight hour agreements, with contracts valued at more than $900 million.
"Corporate aircraft operators have relied on the industryÕs most comprehensive engine care program for many years and with new aircraft on the market, they have turned to R-R for continued reliable services this year," says Douglas Cribbes, senior vice- president for aftermarket and customer services for R-R corporate and regional aircraft business.
The CorporateCare program provides predictable engine maintenance costs, transfers engine risk to R-R, reduces acquisition costs and administrative burdens and allows operators to focus on their core business. R-R says customers enrolled in the program benefit from higher aircraft residual values as well as predictability and control of maintenance costs.
R-R offers CorporateCare for business jets powered by the AE3007, produced in Indianapolis, Indiana, powering the Embraer Legacy and Cessna Citation X; the Tay 611 series, manufactured in Dahlewitz, Germany, used on the Gulfstream G350 and G450, and the BR710, also made in Dahlewitz, powering BombardierÕs Global 5000 and Global Express and the Gulfstream G500 and G550.
