Alpine Air Support
Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin Parts Distributor with OEM Distribution Network
Now in our 15th year, Alpine Air Support is an aftermarket helicopter parts supplier exclusively stocking components for the Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin series. Centrally located in Zürich, Switzerland, the company is focused on stocking the most widely required rotable, avionics and instrument parts for the Dauphin series of helicopters (including the EC155).
For rotable replacement, avionics and instruments, we offer a comprehensive exchange program where we supply a tagged, serviceable unit on advance exchange with a core unit due back to us within 21 days. Our sales price reflects the actual net cost associated with the repair or overhaul, saving money against the manufacturer’s list price.
It is our clear aim to be the market leader in AS365 and EC155 helicopter aftermarket parts support. We have made major and continual investments in Dauphin spares. We specifically stock every single Sagem AP-155 autopilot component and have an extensive inventory of avionics and instruments on the shelf, ready to ship. Main and tail rotor servos, engine accessories, starter generators and landing lights to name just a few.
We can also offer parts consignments as an attractive and cheaper option to OEM power-by-the-hour (PBH) arrangements. Alpine physically supplies complete inventories to operators, which are maintained at the customer’s operating facility until required. Our consignments offer far greater flexibility and availability than any existing PBH schemes. We successfully run and operate several consignments with major Dauphin operators.
OEM Factory Distribution
As a factory authorized distributor for Goodrich Actuation Systems, Sagem Défense et Sécurité and Thales AES in France, Alpine has established marketing agreements to ensure a steady supply of components and to maintain stock levels for the “hot movers”. We are able to pass on genuine cost savings to our customers for many OEM products, with far quicker delivery times than the factory.
Quality and Customers
Alpine Air Support’s Quality System is ASA-100 accredited and approved (based on FAA AC-00-56A). We have a worldwide Dauphin operator and service center customer base who trust our quality, appreciate our service and competitive pricing. If you fly or maintain Dauphins, we should be talking! ■
