Following on from the recent opening of Australia’s newest engine maintenance and test
facility for turboprop engines and APUs in Adelaide,
TAE has announced the addition of a new PT6 engine maintenance capability at Brisbane Airport.
TAE now offers a ‘light’ maintenance capability, including hot section and power section repairs for all PT6 models in Brisbane, backed by their quick parts supply and the ‘heavy’ overhaul capability available in their new Adelaide facility.
CASA approved and managed on-site by Chris Christofis, the facility is integrated with TAE’s regional wheels & tyres operation and is also a new base for TAE’s PT6m and TPE331 Field Service Team that provides ‘on-wing’ engine services across Australia.
“With the addition of this facility, TAE will be the largest independent turbine engine MRO provider in Australia, covering several engine types powering aircraft from the agricultural Air Tractor to the F-18 Super Hornet with more opportunities on the way,” general manager, Andrew Sanderson said.
TAE’s full portfolio of engines includes maintenance for the Honeywell TPE331 and the P&WC PT6A turboprop engines, the Hamilton Sundstrand APS500 and APS1000 auxiliary power units and the F404 and F414 engines for the F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet
