GA Telesis (GAT) announced its MRO Services Component Repair Group has acquired new equipment that will allow it to introduce main engine fuel pump capabilities to its ecosystem. The repairs will be completed at its existing FAA/EASA/CAAC certified component repair facility at Miami International Airport. With the introduction of new team members and equipment, the company will have the capability to repair, overhaul and test main engine fuel pumps for the most common engines in commercial airline operation, including all variants of the CFM56, CF6-80, V2500, PW4000, and CF34 jet engines. This new capability is the first step in major fuel component repair. In addition, it encompasses a continued investment in the people and machinery required to become the most formidable MRO solutions provider for jet engine fuel systems.
“I am excited to be part of adding fuel repair and overhaul capabilities to the GA Telesis Ecosystem™,” said Mark Story, director of Fuel Systems. “Over the coming five years, we intend to become the world leader and innovator in the indicated engine platform fuel systems,” he added.
“Based on our exemplary performance on other aircraft systems, our customers initiated the request for GAT to add fuel systems content to our MRO,” commented Pastor Lopez, president of MRO Services. “This is the first step in our evolution towards offering the most comprehensive component repair capabilities to the world’s airlines and doing so by setting quality, reliability, and turn-time standards exceeding that of the industry,” he added.
