London Stansted Airport-based Inflite The Jet Centre has become a Rolls-Royce authorized service center, allowing it to offer maintenance for the AE3007 engines that power Embraer’s Legacy 600 and 650 business jets. Inflite will provide operators signed up to R-R CorporateCare and CorporateCare Enhanced MRO programs with engine support.
CorporateCare is Rolls-Royce’s fixed-cost engine maintenance management program, “protecting operators against unforeseen costs and unscheduled events anywhere in the world,” said Inflite. The MRO company said that it has already started to invest in parts and training in support of the contract and will add personnel, with the first four technicians starting later this month after taking courses at Rolls-Royce.
“We are looking forward to working closely with Rolls-Royce and their customers as we continue to evolve our business, newly bolstered with the arrival of Excellence Aviation,” said Inflite head of customer service Alan Barnes. Excellence Aviation is based in a new dedicated part of Inflite’s hangar at Stansted, having been acquired in February. Inflite managing director Christopher Creutz, who joined the company in 2017 from Lufthansa, commented, “Over the past few years we have invested considerably in our facilities and manpower and we are delighted to take this contract on."
