Adam Announces Maintenance Coverage
Adam Aircraft and Jet Support Services Inc. (JSSI) last week introduced their "Tip-to-Tail" hourly maintenance cost guarantee program developed exclusively for the new Adam A500 twin-engine piston and A700 AdamJet aircraft. Under the program, Adam Aircraft A500 and A700 buyers can include the coverage at preferred rates for three- or five-year terms when they purchase their aircraft. "The fixed-cost maintenance program offered by JSSI will stabilize the direct operating cost for owners of new A500 and the A700 aircraft, and ensure a high rate of dispatch reliability," said Kay Ardalan, Adam Aircraft vice president, Customer Support. "This program also features a computerized maintenance tracking program that will augment the Maintainability and Reliability analysis of our fleet and enable better planning of support elements."
This program launch marks the entry into the VLJ (very light jet) market for JSSI and the first hourly maintenance program to include complete airframe and engine coverage for a twin-engine piston aircraft. For both aircraft, the maintenance program includes:
Scheduled maintenance, parts and labor
Unscheduled maintenance, parts and labor
Removal and reinstallation
Loaner components (including avionics)
On-site JSSI technical representation
"This is a milestone for us at JSSI. We worked extensively with the Adam Aircraft customer support team to put this together," commented John F. Haskins, president and chief executive officer for JSSI. "We knew our hourly cost programs could be effective over a wide spectrum of aircraft. Now these owners can expand on their warranty coverage and benefit from our excellent technical support as well as having predictable maintenance costs year after year."
