Helicopters, by their nature make extreme demands on the quality and reliability of all their component parts. Airborne safety, although paramount, is not the only issue. With helicopters typically involved in military, emergency, oil & gas and critical medical operations, any aircraft failing to be airworthy or ready for action on demand is also a potential threat to human safety and life.
Helicopter Spares, part of the Oracle Component s Holding Group, has many years’ experience of supplying into these sectors. We understand, for example, that when a customer faces an Aircraft on Ground (AOG) situation, the quality and traceability of the components we supply must be matched by the speed of our response and delivery. That’s why, after two years’ effort and a major financial investment, we’re celebrating the launch of our new ‘Skynet’ IT system. This empowers our staff to respond to enquiries with greater speed and accuracy than ever before. Paperwork has been eliminated in favour of online ‘Smoothflow’ documentation procedures which give total visibility to everything sold, to AS9120 levels.
In fact Skynet is a window onto our recently upgraded quality system, which ensures all the quality procedures and documents are in place and ready for access as needed. To meet the extreme demands of the helicopter market, we are BS EN ISO 9001:2008 certified. The critical aspect of our certification is that it has been awarded by BSI, who themselves are accredited by UKAS, the United Kingdom Accreditation Service. UKAS is the sole accreditation service recognised by government; this guarantees that our certification is to the most stringent standards possible.
If you would like to know more about the products and services we offer to helicopter purchasing, engineering, rework MRO and general maintenance departments, come and speak with us. We can discuss anything from airframes to consumables, and can offer overhauled systems as well as new parts as appropriate to your requirements.
