ROLLS-ROYCE P/N: RR30000412
Shirley, NY, March 2, 2020 – Answering the call of hundreds of R66 distributors, repair stations, and operators around the world citing complaints about predatory pricing, quality, and turn times, NAASCO has spent thousands of man-hours in developing an affordable option to the OEM. As a result, NAASCO has obtained FAA approval for its repair process on the RR30000412 starter using OEM or superior parts and can issue a dual release FAA/EASA 8130 tag for the overhaul and other repairs performed on these units.
From a production standpoint, NAASCO will provide a two-week turnaround time. For clients that require faster service, an express routine overhaul (2-3-day turn) is available for a modest adder. Next day service will be provided in AOG situations. According to Mike Leslie, NAASCO’s President & CEO, “This is what our team does. Give us your sore thumbs and we will develop an affordable solution that lowers your operational costs while improving reliability.” He went on to say, “We understand the challenges that helicopter operators face every day and they should know that NAASCO will continue to drive product improvements for all types of starter generators, motors, relays, contacts, and other electro-mechanical components”.
NAASCO, the developer of the ETR-25™ “Mercury Mod™” starter generator improvements providing 1,000 hours - no brush changes - guarantee for use on Agusta, Bell, Airbus-Eurocopter, MD, Schweizer, Sikorsky and others, now offers the new R66 starter generator which follows in the steps of NAASCO’s long history of providing first in quality solutions.
