A general Service Bulletin will not be published. The following procedure applies: The Reply Form Sheet must be completed and submitted, a quote is then prepared and after the order has been received, a helicopter-specific Service Bulletin (Cover Service Bulletin) will be created. The Cover Service Bulletin will be identified with the TIP number plus a suffix after the issue sequence number, e.g. "01" for the first Cover Service Bulletin (MBB-BK117 C-2-34-015/01). This will only apply to the subject service station and specific helicopter S/N. The installation is then carried out by Airbus Helicopters Deutschland or the approved service station and released i.a.w. the Service Bulletin.
