Dallas-based engine MRO Prime Turbines has been named an authorized repair and overhaul center for the GE Aviation M601 and H series turboprop engines, making it the first such facility outside of Prague, Czech Republic, to receive that designation. Previously, the location was one of 25 designated repair centers worldwide.
“Prime Turbines continues to provide its customers with maintenance flexibility and reduced costs, making it a great fit with GE’s engine service model,” said Brad Mottier, the engine maker’s vice president for business aviation and integrated systems. “Its expertise and strong presence throughout the region will help us assist our customers with quality service and support.”
According to GE Aviation, there are more than 1,000 of these turboprop engines currently in service. Prime Turbines, a VSE Aviation subsidiary, expects to complete its first M601 overhaul by the end of this month.
