MONTREAL, February 12, 2020 – Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), today announced that Bell 212, 412, 427 and 429 helicopter customers now benefit from a single point of contact to learn about and enroll in aircraft and engine maintenance plans. When enrolling an aircraft into Bell’s Customer Advantage Plan (CAP), customers will also have the option to sign up for a Pratt & Whitney Eagle Service™ Plan (ESP™) for their engine maintenance needs.
“We are pleased to work with Bell to offer our customers a more convenient way to maximize the value of their aircraft and engines,” said Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam, vice president, Customer Service at Pratt & Whitney. “With an Eagle Service™ Plan, customers can keep their engines performing at their best and ready for takeoff at a moment’s notice. They can also reduce unplanned maintenance and expenses, while increasing time between maintenance events.”

Bell 427 and 429 helicopter owners can choose ESP™ Platinum or Gold coverage for their PW207 engines, and Bell 212 and 412 helicopter owners can select ESP™ Gold or Gold Lite for their PT6T Twin-Pac® engines.
