GE Aviation, a subsidiary of General Electric and one of the world’s leading aircraft engine suppliers, has recently announced that RUAG Aviation has been selected as an authorized service center (ASC) for General Electric’s CF-34-10E engines. GE Aviation offers engines for a great majority of commercial aircrafts and first approached RUAG Aviation in February of 2016 with its requirements for an expedited approval process. RUAG Aviation designs, develops, and manufacturers mainly precision components and structural assemblies using the most recent technologies for the machinery industry as well as the aerospace industry. RUAG Aviation is the Aviation Division of RUAG, the Swiss technology group.
“The creation of a new Authorized Service Center at RUAG’s Munich-Oberpfaffenhofen site complements RUAG’s strongly established service portfolio, enabling them to expand support of Embraer Lineage 1000 aircraft with maintenance, repair and overhaul of GE’s CF34-10E turbofan,”
said the general manager and vice president of General Electric Aviation’s Business and General Aviation and Integrated Systems organization, Brad Mottier.
“RUAG Aviation has developed a solid reputation as a service provider for business jets, and this agreement will allow them to increase support capabilities for our customers in Europe.”
RUAG Aviation was selected by GE Aviation based upon the two company’s longstanding relationship. RUAG Aviation offers and delivers fast response times while also offering broad in-house expertise alongside a vast service portfolio and a strong track record.
“Becoming an Authorized GE Service Center is an important step towards strengthening our service portfolio in Europe. We look forward to continuing to work closely with General Electric and supporting our European customers,”
said the Head of Sales Business Aviation at RUAG Aviation, Mark-André Mann.
According to GE Aviation’s website,
“GE Aviation is expanding its service network for business and general aviation engines, growing from 10 ASCs in 2010 to 38 in 2016. This network enables customers to have access to OEM-quality service and support around the world. In October 2015, Pro Pilot magazine readers ranked GE Aviation #1 in the 2015 Turbine Powerplant Product Support Survey for the 1st time in the 23-year history of this annual operator survey, which asked turbine operators to rate engine manufacturers on a scale of 1 (poor) to 10 (excellent) in seven categories: response to problems, spares availability, cost of parts, speed in AOG service, tech manuals, tech reps and service satisfaction.”
