“After much deliberation and analysis, we have added the new product lines in response to client requests,” says Sean Lynch, EAP managing director. “We’re delighted that clients are asking for our support. Our responsive service, robust rental engine pool and significant spare parts inventory set us apart, and our growth is evidence of that.”
By owning the spare parts inventory and rental engines/APUs, EAP is able to overcome supply-chain issues plaguing the industry and provide proactive customer service and enhanced dispatch reliability. EAP has never had a customer miss a trip because of the lack of a rental engine.
EAP has distinguished itself by having one of the highest ratios of rental engines to enrolled engines in the industry. It continuously buys engines to support the fleet, which has become increasingly important as engine-shop visits now take four to eight months on average.
EAP covers all variants of the Honeywell TFE731 as well as many models of General Electric, Rolls-Royce and Pratt & Whitney engines. With the recent addition of the new engines, EAP covers a large portfolio of engine models that power many popular business jets from every major manufacturer.
