GE Honda Aero Engines Ready For EIS

Entry Into Service Expected Later This Year

GE Honda Aero Engines (GHAE) says that all elements are in place to support a successful entry into service (EIS) in 2015.

Preparation for support of European aircraft delivery is on schedule, as GHAE has submitted all required documentation for EASA certification of the HF120, which is planned for the fourth quarter of 2015. GHAE has a European Authorized Service Provider (ASPs) network for the HF120 engine that currently includes TAG Aviation (Farnborough, UK) and Rheinland Air Service (Monchengladbach, Germany), and is actively engaged with Marshall Aviation Services in Cambridge, UK to expand the network's reach.

"We are delighted to work with Marshall Aviation Services and welcome them to join our exceptional network of service providers", said Steve Shaknaitis, president of GE Honda Aero Engines.

GE Honda's ASPs perform line maintenance, engine removal and support rental engine use for HF120 shop visits. GE Honda's Engine Maintenance Care program will be promoted, sold, and facilitated by the ASP network. Customers will use the ASP network for warranty and Engine Maintenance Care services.

The ASP network is supported by a 24/7 GE Honda Bizjet Operations Center, and a growing team of dedicated Field Technical Managers (FTMs) and Customer Team Managers (CTMs).

GE Honda Aero Engines offers long-term Engine Maintenance Care programs that extend beyond the basic engine warranty, with coverage of both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance events. The two levels of service coverage offered under this program are EMC2, a hands-off solution for customers requiring comprehensive service, and EMCb, which is predominantly a parts-only program. Both programs are offered through the GE Honda ASP network.

In order to support EIS, GHAE's dedicated production facility, Honda Aero, Inc.'s Burlington, NC site is ramping up to produce approximately 100 engines in 2015 to meet customer demands. The facility received its FAA Production Certificate in March of 2015.

To date, the HF120 program has accumulated close to 23,000 cycles and more than 13,000 hours demonstrating maturity prior to entering service in early 2015.

Rated at 2,095 pounds of thrust, the HF120 engine sets new standards of performance in fuel efficiency, durability, and low noise and emissions.
