Bombardier Business Aircraft has signed an agreement with Turbine Engine Specialists (TES) that will provide it enhanced capabilities for maintenance work on Challenger 300 and Challenger 350 aircraft engines.
Dedicated TES engine technicians will provide on-site support at the Dallas, Hartford, Tucson, Wichita and Fort Lauderdale facilities and accompany Bombardier’s Mobile Response Team for increased support in the U.S.
“With the increasing number of in-service Challenger 300 series aircraft, Bombardier is committed to ensuring its customers receive exceptional maintenance support to keep their aircraft flying. Through this agreement, customers will benefit from the unmatched expertise and proficiency provided by Bombardier and TES,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Vice President, Customer Experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
Technicians from TES at Bombardier’s U.S.-based service centers will also provide additional capabilities, including troubleshooting and repair, engine removal and reinstallation, combustor replacement and Line Replaceable Units (LRUs). To reduce aircraft downtime, Bombardier will provide dedicated Challenger 300 and Challenger 350 rental engines at Bombardier’s service centers throughout North America.
The Challenger 300 aircraft series is the best-selling business jet platform of the last decade.
