"TAE's strong presence in Asia-Pacific will help us assist our customers with quality service and support in this region."
"We are very excited to have been chosen by GE Aviation to represent them as the Asia-Pacific's Designated Repair Center for the new H80 engine and the existing Walter M601 engine fleet" said TAE's general manager Andrew Sanderson. "We look forward to working with GE Aviation and expanding our renowned level of quality customer service to the new H80 engine customer base and the M601 operators in the Asia-Pacific region."
