Dallas Airmotive has received authorization from Honeywell Aerospace to supply turbofan engine and APU support services for the Asia-Pacific region. Under the terms of the agreement, the company will provide major periodic inspection (MPI) services on TFE731 engines and line authorizations on CFE738 and HTF7000 engines and APUs (36 series, RE100, RE220). The MRO covers the area from Midway Island in the Pacific to Western India and includes China and Australia. According to a Dallas Airmotive spokesman, the MRO is planning to expand its existing in-region field support currently based in Bengaluru, India, by adding mobile response teams in Singapore, Hong Kong and eastern Australia this year. An MPI shop for TFE731 inspections is also planned to open in Singapore during January 2012. “The growing use of business aviation in the Asia-Pacific region indicates to us it’s the right time to establish a greater physical presence there,” said Hugh McElroy, president of BBA Aviation Engine Repair and Overhaul Group. “Field service personnel from our U.S. operations, experienced in Honeywell products, will be assigned immediately to Dallas Airmotive Seletar [Singapore] until we fully staff our Asia-Pacific organization during the months ahead.”
