Engine Assurance Program (EAP) has agreed to send Duncan Aviation 20 Honeywell TFE731 engines over the next 12 months for major periodic inspections, compressor zone inspections, and unscheduled events through a partnership between the two organizations. EAP is a provider of hourly maintenance programs for operators of Honeywell, GE, Rolls-Royce, and Pratt & Whitney engines.
EAP program coordinator Sean Lynch explained that four EAP engines have been through Duncan’s shop in the past 30 days for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance. “This partnership is providing great results for clients, so we have agreed to send Duncan [the] engine over the next 12 months for their respective shop visits,” Lynch said.
A Honeywell-authorized service provider of TFE731 line, major, and heavy maintenance, Duncan has an OEM-certified 20,000-pound-thrust class turbofan engine facility in Lincoln, Nebraska. The TFE731 engine family powers a variety of Bombardier/Learjet, Citation, Gulfstream, Hawker, and Dassault Falcon business jets.
“Our relationship with EAP has organically grown over the years,” said Duncan v-p of sales Ryan Huss. “This has greatly benefited both companies as well as aircraft owners. Over that time frame, we have developed a good understanding of EAP’s company values and how well they align with our own values.”
