Dallas, Texas…February 27, 2013… Dallas Airmotive has been awarded Honeywell line authorization for the RE220 auxiliary power unit (APU) used on long-range Bombardier and Gulfstream business jets. Dallas Airmotive will offer a variety of field service capabilities to include on-site engine and borescope inspections, troubleshooting, accessory and LRU replacement, and APU removal and reinstallation.

We view Honeywell’s approval as further affirmation of the great team we have assembled and the strength of our service offering.”
