“This is our first entry into the ultra long-range engine market,” commented Hugh McElroy, President of BBA Aviation ERO. “We’ve proven our expertise over many years in support of Rolls-Royce and Spey and Tay. We intend to build on our extensive knowledge base, particularly in support of business aviation to ensure BR710 operators receive seamless and timely field service wherever and whenever an operator calls.”
Dallas Airmotive has been offering OEM-approved service on Rolls-Royce business aviation turbine engines since 1959 and currently offers field service, repair, mid-life and overhaul services on Spey, Tay and M250™ engines.
