SHANGHAI – April 15, 2013 – Dallas Airmotive Asia Pacific based at Singapore’s Seletar Airport has celebrated its first year of operations by highlighting a number of milestones achieved since its opening in February 2012.
The company’s Singapore Regional Turbine Center (RTC) has received country authorizations from CAAS/Singapore, CAAP/Philippines, DGCA/Indonesia, DCA/Thailand and DCA/Malaysia. Authorizations from India and China as well as EASA are in progress with approvals potentially in hand during this year’s ABACE event in Shanghai.
“We’ve made great strides in obtaining necessary authorizations from countries and aviation authorities in the region,” stated Dallas Airmotive President, Doug Meador. “Our Singapore facility fits perfectly with our long-term goals of providing local solutions wherever in the world there is a significant element of turbine powered business aircraft. We are a customer focused company; being nearby when operators need us is our strength in servicing business aircraft operators.”
The Singapore RTC is Honeywell approved for TFE731 Major Periodic Inspection, the only such facility in the Asia Pacific region. It is also approved for line maintenance on Honeywell HTF7000 and CFE738 engines, GTCP 36-100/150 APU and RE100/RE220 APU.
Field service engineers based in Singapore and Australia provide F1RST SUPPORT™ on-site service that includes engine troubleshooting, borescope inspections, carbon seal replacement, and LRU replacement.
“Our Singapore facility is strategically located near major FBOs in the region to provide them with engine support,” commented Meador. “Singapore is also an ideal location for dispatching technical personnel to key business aircraft operating centers.”
