Deccan Technical Services & Bell CSF
Deccan Technical Services (DTS) is a unit of Deccan Charters Ltd. We have been approved by Bell Helicopters Textron, one of the most reputed manufacturers of civil and military helicopters in the world, to set up the first fully - approved Bell Customer Service Facility (CSF) in India. DTS has been conceived as a single - window facility and aims to be the preferred 'workshop' for helicopter maintenance in India and its neighborhood. The Bell CSF operated by Deccan Charters is a DGCA India approved facility and the only Bell CSF in India for overhaul of Bell Helicopter Components (Bell 206 B, 206 L series and Bell407) .We are also in the process of enhancing our capabilities to OH components of Bell-230, 212/412 in the near future.
Our state-of-th-art facility at Jakkur Aerodrome, Bangalore, spread over 5,500 Sq ft , comprises of an approved Technical store, Component Overhaul shop, Radio shop, Battery shop, calibration shop and Hangar floor space. It houses our Administration, Engineering and QC departments, all seamlessly integrated with cutting-edge IT to enable superior, cost effective productivity. It is also home to a separate facility, which currently houses a wheel and brake facility for ATR-42/72 and Airbus 320.
DTS is equipped with all resources to carry out your helicopter maintenance- licensed engineers (trained at the Bell Training Academy at Fort Worth USA), special tools and spares for Bell 206 B, Bell 206 L series, Bell 230 ,Bell 407, Bell 212, Bell 412 from Bell Textron and also spares for any type of Helicopter /Aircraft from authorised source. DTS can import helicopters, assemble and paint them to your requirements. In the event of it being difficult to fly the helicopter to our facility, our engineering team can conduct in-situ maintenance at your location. The team would, in such cases, carry all necessary equipment and tools, and ensure a high level of quality and efficiency. We also have the latest Vibration Analysis equipment (RADS-AT) to ensure that your helicopter flies smoothly. With the RADS-AT, vibration is eliminated, reducing wear and tear on all rotating components. This reduces maintenance costs. So you can fly smoothly, efficiently and above all safely with DTS.
OVERHAUL OF COMPONENTS
DTS component overhaul shop is environmentally controlled, meets all DGCA requirements and is DGCA approved. We have been approved by Bell Textron to carry out component overhaul of Bell 206 B III, Bell 206 L series and Bell 407 helicopters. We have also carried out engine CEB modifications on RR 250 series engines and are developing our Engine Overhaul Shop to undertake full engine overhaul facility. You can now overhaul all major components at DTS, at a reduced cost, without the problems and delays involved in the export / import of items.
