Premier Turbines, a division of Dallas Airmotive, has added -20, -40 and -60 models to its TFE731 Core Zone Inspections (CZI) program. As a result, the company now offers CZIs on all TFE731 turbofan engines. Neosho, Mo.-based Premier, a Honeywell authorized heavy maintenance facility since 1996, has also modified an engine test cell to support this program.
According to Jim Donlan, president and CEO of Dallas Airmotive, more than 1,250 TFE731-20, -40 and -60 engines power business jets that are currently in operation worldwide. These engines are used on a variety of aircraft, including the Falcon 50EX and 900EX, the Learjet 40 and 45 and the Gulfstream G100/Astra SPX. “These new authorizations elevate Premier Turbines to one of only five independent service providers in the world capable of performing this advanced level of repair and overhaul,” Donlan said.
