Add AirSprint to the long list of operators that rely on Honeywell’s signature Maintenance Service Plan (MSP) to manage aircraft downtime and reduce maintenance costs. The Canada-based fractional aircraft ownership company just signed an agreement to enroll up to 12 of its Embraer Legacy 450 aircraft in the MSP.
“Honeywell’s Maintenance Service Plan takes the guesswork and worry out of maintenance timing and cost so operators have a dependable, client-ready fleet all the time,” said Mike Beazley, vice president, Business Aviation for Honeywell.
“Honeywell has more than 40 years of experience dedicated to maintenance support and has built the right set of engineers and service staff members and a global support network to provide customers with peace of mind that their aircraft will spend less time on the ground and retain a high value.”
The Honeywell MSP celebrated 40 years of operation in 2016. The service plan is the most comprehensive on the market and supports over 80 aircraft platforms in more than 100 countries around the world.
The service will help AirSprint make maintenance predictable, adding stability to financial planning by using scheduled engine and auxiliary power unit (APU) inspections, maintenance and upgrades to keep aircraft operations running on time and as profitable as possible. When unforeseen issues strike, Honeywell’s MSP offers AirSprint around-the-clock access to over 180 services centers around the world, so it’s easy to get spare parts and mechanical expertise wherever they are needed.
“As a fractional aircraft ownership business, our focus is on providing our fractional owners with a safe, consistent, competitive and affordable private aviation experience. A big part of achieving that goal is making smart investments in the health and maintenance of our fleet,” said James Elian, president and COO, AirSprint Inc. “Honeywell’s Maintenance Service Plan ensures that we have the global experience and support to manage maintenance issues, and keep our planes flying and our fractional owners happy.”
Honeywell’s MSP today supports approximately 75 percent of business aviation aircraft equipped with Honeywell engines or APUs, including the HTF7500E turbofan engine and 36-150 APU for both the Legacy 450 and Legacy 500.
