GE Aviation has expanded its propeller maintenance, repair and overhaul facility at Brisbane Airport.
The 2,000 sqm facility services propellers for Bombardier Q400s, Saab 340s and Fokker 50s, all of which are in widespread operation in Australia and in the wider region, and has been certified by CASA and EASA to the AS:9100 standard.
“GE is committed to supporting existing and new customers in the region. This marks a long-term investment to support the growing fleet here and enables us to broaden the scope of capabilities that we can offer our customers,” GE Aviation Regional Executive, Max York said. “As the only facility in Asia Pacific to service the Bombardier Q400 propeller system, the expansion will also provide productivity improvements including shorter lead times and reduced stock holding and freight costs.”
