Tam Aviação Executiva has signed an agreement with GE Aviation to become an authorized service center for M601 and H80 turboprop engines. The MRO will offer line maintenance, removals and re-installations of engines and line-replaceable units and engine spares. GE Aviation will provide Tam AE with material support and training. A spokesman for GE told AIN that Tam AE is a new industry partner. “GE is excited to work with Tam AE, a leading FBO network in Brazil known for its top-level service and support,” said Paul Theofan, president and managing executive of GE Aviation’s Business and General Aviation Turboprops. “The company’s values and the synergy created by the alignment between GE and Tam AE are a great foundation. As the H80 engine nears entry into service, we are looking forward to building this partnership with Tam, and supporting the next generation of aircraft engines in one of the fastest growing markets globally.” Tam Aviação Executiva has five locations in Brazil and a primary maintenance facility located in Jundiai, São Paulo.
