MTU Maintenance Berlin-Brandenburg, a subsidiary of Germany’s MTU Aero Engines, has signed a branded service agreement extension with GE Aviation to continue as an authorized service provider through 2030 for OEM maintenance, overhaul work scoping, and component repairs on CF34-3, CF34-8C, CF34-8E, and CF34-10E engines. Variants of the CF34 engine family power Bombardier and Embraer regional and business jets such as the Bombardier Challenger 605 and Embraer Lineage 1000 bizliner.
André Sinanian, MTU Maintenance managing director and senior v-p, said the company recently marked the redelivery of the 500th CF34-10E engine. MTU Maintenance has carried out 1,400 shop visits and several hundred on-site events for the CF34 engine family since 2003, Sinanian explained.
“MTU has been a close partner with GE in the CF34 MRO network,” added Cristina Seda-Hoelle, GE Aviation general manager of regional and business aviation engines and services. “With more than 4,000 CF34 engines in service, GE is very pleased to extend this critical partnership for the long-term strength of the program.”
