GE Aviation has teamed with Ocean Sky Jet Centre, a Luton FBO, “[to] allow us to best serve our customers so they can enjoy the games,” said Brad Mottier, vice president and general manager of GE Aviation’s Business & General Aviation organization.
According to Mottier, dedicated GE Aviation field service representation will be on-site at Ocean Sky Jet Centre through the Olympics for any line maintenance needs. In addition, GE Aviation will position new and exchange materials in the region for easy access. Mottier told AIN that Ocean Sky will provide staff to assist with engine line maintenance during the games.
The UK Civil Aviation Authority predicts that business aircraft flights to the London area will increase by more than 3,000 during this summer’s 2012 Olympics.
Mottier added that GE Aviation continues to expand its service-center network and is working on adding sites in North America and China. To date the company has 28 service centers for the M601 and H80 turboprops and five service centers for CF34-3 turbofans.
