Continuing airworthiness management services

From major tourist destinations to the busy airspace over cities, the single-engine H130 is in widespread use with sightseeing services, charter operators, and law enforcement agencies, among others.

Airbus’ continuing airworthiness management (CAM) services provide highly-effective safety and airworthiness management for helicopters operating worldwide.

Through this offering, Airbus monitors all configuration and airworthiness aspects of a customer’s rotorcraft – enabling the customer to direct their focus on operations. Among the key benefits of these services are increased fleet availability, optimised maintenance operations and secured aircraft value.

CAM services are developed under worldwide aeronautics safety standards, are applicable to any aircraft and accessible to all customers – be they civil or military operators or financial institutions. They support fleet enrollment either from “as built/delivered” or “as maintained” configurations.

This offering can be tailored to meet customer requirements, including the following:

  • Consulting and training module: this service covers diagnosis and support for organisation and processes, regulatory and on-the-job training programme solutions, helicopter airworthiness review and airworthiness certificate renewal and recommendations, and creation and support for an approved maintenance programme (AMP).
  • CAM implementation module: this service provides referential initialisation, aircraft data loading, gathering and cleaning. It can also include the implementation of a maintenance information system.
  • CAM service module: this service provides for the performance of continuing airworthiness management under a partial or full delegation of CAM activities. 


The new Airbus helicopters comprehensive range of Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) services is comprised of three packages capable of supporting any mission profile or organisation type.

 FlyScan proposes three services:

  • Advise: a tailored service to support a helicopter customer's organisation responsible for HUMS monitoring. Airbus provides proactive feedback and a weekly review of main components
  • Supervise: a service for helicopter customers without a vibration analysis team in their organisation. Airbus manages the various thresholds implemented and closely monitors any event that occurs in the fleet. A simple and regular data transfer is all that is needed for Airbus to perform a thorough analysis of your aircraft records
  • Guard: A service well-adapted to helicopter operators already managing a HUMS system. Airbus brings its expertise to your doorstep, supporting teams to survey their fleets. This package includes a specific HUMS hotline available 24/7, and commits to responding to AOG requests within a few hours

The FlyScan new service packages highly contribute to maximizing your operation's efficiency, increasing both fleet availability and flight safety, while reducing the maintenance burden.
