Propulsion International's TPE-331 Group Maintenance Plan Receives "Best New Product" Award from Twin Commander

Hermosa Beach, CA  May 30, 2013 –– Representatives of Propulsion International announced that its Group Maintenance Plan (GPM) for the Honeywell TPE-331 engine series received the “Best New Product” award during the recent Twin Commander University gathering.

In presenting the award to Propulsion International’s Founder and CEO, Chad Ahrens, Twin Commander LLC., President, Matt Isley said, “The Twin Commander is unique in that it has such a wide range of mission capabilities. We are looking for ways to help our diverse owner group control costs while ensuring the safety and reliability of these great aircraft. The Propulsion International GMP is a great option for Commander operators seeking to reduce their engine maintenance costs and protect themselves from unexpected maintenance expenses.”

“The word on Propulsion International’s GMP is getting around,” Isley stated. “With backing from Honeywell and our (Twin Commander) Service Center network, the program is gaining a lot of acceptance in the fleet. Get a GMP proposal before engine disassembly. The savings could be significant.”

“We could not be happier that our GMP has been recognized by Twin Commander as a product that will help owners and operators of these exceptional aircraft control their ongoing TPE-331 inspection and maintenance costs,” Ahrens said. “Our goal, like everyone else who attends the Twin Commander University, is to keep them in the air for years to come.”

Entering its third decade the Twin Commander University is hosted every-other-year by Twin Commander Aircraft, LLC. The event brings together owners, operators, service centers, manufacturers and ancillary service providers to exchange ideas and insights into improving the owner/operator experience.
