Rolls-Royce has signed an agreement with Dallas Airmotive for the MRO company to provide mobile repair support services for the BR710 series of turbofan engines. It claims to be the only independent engine service company to have the approval. Dallas Airmotive will offer on-site engine borescoping, troubleshooting, accessory replacement and engine removal and reinstallation.
“We have a dedicated four-person team with fly-away kits,” Larry Galarza, senior manager of field services, told AIN. “We’ll use existing mobile response trucks in those parts of the country where it makes sense; otherwise, we’ll send the team via airline. In addition to the existing team of four, others are in training and we’ll shortly have nine personnel available,” he said.
Galarza said that approximately half of the issues people call about can be resolved by telephone through the company’s F1rst Support network with control centers in Dallas, Portsmouth UK and Singapore. Dallas Airmotive is approved by Rolls-Royce to support Bombardier and Gulfstream aircraft that are on CorporateCare as well as those that are not. The BR710 powers the Gulfstream V/V-SP, G500 and G550 and the Bombardier Global Express, Global Express XRS/6000 and Global 5000.
