GE Aviation is partnering with StandardAero to offer advanced technical support for customers flying GE-powered aircraft to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. GE Aviation’s dedicated field service engineers in Brazil are also available 24/7 for extended support throughout the Summer Games.
StandardAero’s Turbo Fan (TFAN) Field Service Team, located in Tennessee, are on standby throughout the games, offering 24-hour dispatch support to provide services ranging from engine inspection, repairs and parts as needed for GE-powered aircraft.
In July 2016, StandardAero renewed its independent TRUEngineTM authorized maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) provider agreement for CF34 and CFM56* engines, demonstrating an ongoing commitment to OEM-quality engine maintenance. As an authorized TRUEngine MRO provider, CFM56 or CF34 engines overhauled by StandardAero are eligible for TRUEngine status, allowing the engine serial numbers to be included in the TRUEngine database made available to industry appraisers and potential buyers.
GE Aviation is expanding its service network for business and general aviation engines with more than 50 Authorized Service Centers for M601, H80 and CF34 engines. This network enables customers to have access to OEM-quality service and support around the world.
In October 2015, Pro Pilotmagazine readers ranked GE Aviation #1 in the 2015 Turbine Powerplant Product Support Survey for the 1st time in the 23-year history of this annual operator survey, which asked turbine operators to rate engine manufacturers on a scale of 1 (poor) to 10 (excellent) in 7 categories: response to problems, spares availability, cost of parts, speed in AOG service, tech manuals, tech reps and service satisfaction.
Since its service entry in 1983 on the Challenger 601 business jet, the CF34 has earned an industry-leading reputation as one of the cleanest, quietest and most fuel efficient engines in its class. These rugged, airliner-class powerplants set a new standard in corporate aviation for reliability and low maintenance costs.
Across the CF34 family, GE has delivered more than 6,000 engines and continuously invests in product enhancements. Today, CF34 engines are in service with 200 operators in more than 70 countries.
GE Aviation, an operating unit of GE (NYSE: GE), is a world-leading provider of jet, turboprop and turboshaft engines, components and integrated systems for commercial, military, business and general aviation aircraft. GE Aviation has a global service network to support these offerings.
