GE Aviation has selected Premier Turbines as its Designated Repair Center in North and South Americas for M601 and H80 turboprop engines.
As part of this exclusive agreement, Premier Turbines will offer heavy repair services, exchange engines and rentals, line replacement unit rotable pools and field service support to all existing and future M601 and H80 engines in the Americas. GE Aviation will provide the necessary OEM parts to meet Premier Turbines’ needs. Premier Turbines will be ready to accept M601 engines for repair in the first quarter of 2010, according to company officials.
Located in Neosho, Missouri, Premier Turbines provides repair and overhaul services for commercial, government and military turbine engines, components and accessories. The 40-year-old company was acquired by BBA Aviation in 2003.
Last year, GE Aviation began offering M601 operators around-the-clock customer support through its Business Jet Operations Center. M601 engines are overhauled at GE Aviation Czech’s facility in Prague.
