Dallas Airmotive Global Support Network Expands Coverage For Honeywell Engine and APU Products
BBA Aviation Engine Repair and Overhaul (ERO) company Dallas Airmotive has received authorization from Honeywell Aerospace to supply turbofan engine and APU support services for the Asia Pacific region. Included will be Major Periodic Inspection (MPI) services on TFE731, engines, and line authorizations on CFE738 and HTF7000 engines and APUs (36 series, RE100, RE220).
The Asia Pacific region encompasses the area from Midway Island in the Pacific to Western India and includes China and Australia.
Dallas Airmotive is planning to expand its existing in-region field support currently based in Bangalore, India by adding mobile response teams in Singapore, Hong Kong and eastern Australia during 2011. An MPI shop for TFE731 inspections is planned to open in Singapore during January 2012.
Dallas Airmotive’s Asia Pacific mobile response services will coordinate activities through the company’s F1RST SUPPORT global technology headquartered in Dallas, Texas. A regional F1RST SUPPORT center will be created in Singapore later this year that will utilize satellite based technology to enable Dallas Airmotive to track aircraft, engines, assets and personnel via GPS and quickly respond to customer AOG requirements as well as scheduled maintenance events. Response time from first call to customer contact is typically under 15 minutes and repair teams are dispatched within 24 hours when on-site service is needed.
Dallas Airmotive is also expanding its Latin American authorized engine and APU service offerings for Honeywell powered Gulfstream, Dassault, Hawker and Bombardier aircraft in the region.
