New support deals for UK Gazelle, Puma and Sea King helicopters

A number of support contracts have been signed to keep parts of the UK helicopter fleet going for the next few years. Royal Royce will provide 10 years more service for the Gnome turboshafts powering the 96 Sea Kings used by the RAF and RN. The contract covers overhaul, servicing and replacement. Eurocopter will provide support for the Puma HC1 and Gazelle AH1 and may also upgrade some of the Pumas to HC2.
