Engine Assurance Program (EAP) Celebrates 250th Engine Enrollment and Expands Product Lines
Engine Assurance Program (EAP), while celebrating its sixth year in operation, enrolls the 250th engine/APU in its hourly maintenance program, a TFE731 which powers a Falcon 900B. The company also adds the CFE738-1-1B, which powers the Falcon 2000, to its hourly engine coverage. With the addition of the CFE738, EAP covers a large portfolio of engine models on some of the most popular business jets.
EAP has also expanded its hourly engine maintenance coverage to include the 36-150 F2M APU on the Falcon 2000. There are 230 F2000s in service, with 70 percent operating in North America and 18 percent operating in Europe.
“We’ve never had a customer go without a rental engine or APU when they need one. That is something we take pride in, since it is an impressive achievement in this current market,” Lynch adds.
In just a few short years, EAP has emerged as a leading hourly engine maintenance program, which now covers all variants of the Honeywell TFE731 as well as most General Electric, Rolls-Royce and Pratt & Whitney engines.
“Our customer service really sets us apart, but clients also are pleasantly surprised by our pricing. They are impressed with our responsiveness; when a client calls everyone jumps on the situation until it is resolved, whether it is a scheduled or an unscheduled AOG. That being said, quality is always our priority,” says Sean Lynch, EAP program coordinator. “Even though we’re growing rapidly, we still respond to every customer as if they are our best customer.”
EAP’s client base has expanded to include operators from all over the world, including several fleet operators.
EAP’s hourly engine maintenance program covers scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, including life-limited parts, LRUs, R&R, shipping, rentals, line maintenance, trend monitoring and catastrophic coverage, while boasting a 99.99 percent dispatch reliability rate. EAP provides customers with increased residual value of their aircraft, enhanced customer service and meaningful cost savings.
