Engine and APU MRO provider Turbine Engine Specialists (TES) has acquired the 36-100 and 36-150 APU rental bank used on light and midsize business jets from Honeywell and will begin support of those units on January 18, the Fort Worth, Texas-based company announced. The APU rental bank supports business jets manufactured by a variety of OEMs.
This deal complements parts distributor agreements on the Bombardier Challenger CL600/601 and Learjet 60 that TES’s parent company, Killick Aerospace Group, made last year. In addition to the rental bank, TES has received overhaul authorization from Honeywell on the RE220GX APU for Bombardier’s Global Express.
“With the addition of the 36 Series APU rental bank and overhaul capability on the RE220GX APU, it will move TES to the forefront of service providers in business aviation,” said Killick Aerospace president and CEO Russell Starr. “With these additional APU services, we continue to enhance our product and services portfolio, between TES and Killick Aerospace, across many business aircraft programs that will benefit our expanding customer base.”
