Government Capital Corp. and Precision Aviation Services join with AHI to provide solutions for government AS350 operators.

Grand Prairie, TX (PRWEB) July 11, 2014

Airbus Helicopters Inc. (AHI) is pleased to announce that Government Capital Corp. will provide tax-exempt financing for mission equipment technology upgrades and required major maintenance for law enforcement and government-owned AS350-series helicopters. Government Capital, based in Southlake, Texas, has extensive experience providing financing to public agencies.

In addition, Precision Aviation Services, of Peachtree City, Ga., AHIs newest service center, will work with Government Capital and public agencies to provide aircraft systems and avionics upgrades, conduct AS350 12-year airframe inspections and install new mission equipment to enhance the performance of the older helicopters in use with public agencies.

Many of our law enforcement customers continue to operate their aircraft beyond 10 years, and we wanted to identify a new way for public agencies to pay for important mission equipment upgrades without breaking the budget, said Ed Van Winkle, AHI Sales Manager for Airborne Law Enforcement. This innovative program will revolutionize how law enforcement agencies pay for major aircraft upgrades and inspections.

This new financing program allows a law enforcement agency the simplicity of bundling their needs into one tax-exempt financing agreement, said DC Greer, Vice President of Government Capital. This allows the agency to spread payments over a period of time, creating affordability and maintaining the critical services performed by the agency.

Precision Aviation Services (PAS) is pleased to be working with Airbus Helicopters Inc. and Government Capital on this industry-leading initiative said Adrienne Robinson, Vice President Business Development for Precision Aviation Group (PAG). Enabling law enforcement agencies to effectively manage their operating budgets is a key to performing upgrades to keep aircraft in optimal condition. Managing maintenance costs, especially on larger inspections and maintenance items can be challenging. When agencies upgrade their equipment and have the latest technologies in thermal imagers, searchlights, tactical radios, NVG cockpits and systems such as the Garmin G500H, HELI-SAS and EGPWS, not only can they meet or exceed their operation requirements, but they also address safety and fatigue of aircraft pilots and crew.

Airbus Helicopters AS350-series is the most widely used helicopter by U.S. law enforcement agencies with more than 220 in use across the country. Built and certified by Airbus Helicopters Inc. in Columbus, Miss., this cost-effective helicopter offers modern safety features, high cruise speed and range, and the ability to conduct a wide range of missions. AHI leads the U.S. market in sales of new helicopters to federal, state and local law enforcement agencies, maintaining a 56 percent market share over the last decade.

Airbus Helicopters Inc. will display an Oklahoma Department of Public Safety AS350B3e at Booth 811 during the Airborne Law Enforcement Association Conference in Phoenix, July 16-19.
