CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ – The Coast Guard has awarded Jet-Care International a five year contract to provide oil and debris analysis for the Turbomeca Arriel 2C2CG engines that power the serviceÂ’s HH-65 Dolphin helicopters. Jet-Care will provide analysis for more than 200 engines.

The original agreement between the USCG and Jet-Care began in November 2005. The new agreement will extend the relationship for multiple years, providing a one year contract with four one-year options.

The US Coast has been very impressed not only with the analytical tools made available by Jet-Care but also by Jet-CareÂ’s responsiveness to our needs,” said USCG Chief Warrant Officer Elsworth H. Smith, the lead USCG technical services representative working with Turbomeca. “For the past 14 months Jet-Care has demonstrated the technology, data quality and timely response that can improve the long-term efficiency and maintenance of these engines.”

“We are extremely proud that our United States Coast Guard customer recognizes our commitment to the highest levels of performance and customer satisfaction in granting us this contract,” said David Glass, Jet-Care CEO. “We appreciate the US Coast GuardÂ’s continued confidence in the quality service that Jet-Care has been able to provide for their engine condition monitoring program. Our value to operators like the Coast Guard and engine manufacturers is in being able to identify situations before they become expensive or contribute to operational delays. We provide our customers with more than just numbers and graphs, but analysis borne of an extensive knowledge of all types of helicopters and aircraft engines.”
