GA Telesis Files Federal Suit Against GKN Aerospace Chem-Tronics

Claims Breach Of Contract For Sale Of Defective Jet Engine Parts

The First Amended Complaint in a lawsuit filed on June 4th of this year by aviation company GA Telesis, LLC against GKN Aerospace Chem-Tronics, Inc., has been  presented to the court, claiming breach of contract and for failure to pay money owed.

GA Telesis purchased V2500 aircraft jet engine fan blades from GKN that GKN previously acquired from its vendor that, according to its own website, supplies parts previously rejected during engine maintenance. GKN overhauled the blades and issued FAA airworthiness certificates and guaranteed serviceability to GA Telesis. Subsequently, the FAA, through GA Telesis’ airline customer, declared that the fan blades must be removed from airline service and quarantined. GA Telesis and its airline customer have complied with the FAA’s requirements and subsequently GA Telesis filed this legal action after GKN refused to honor its guarantee. GKN has, in turn, sued Powerturbine, Inc., its supplier, for, among other things, concealing these defects.

Daniel A. Platt, a partner at Loeb & Loeb LLP and lead counsel for GA Telesis said, “GA Telesis is simply pursuing a claim for breach of contract based on the fact that GKN guaranteed that the blades were serviceable, when in fact, according to the FAA, they were not. GKN had not disclosed to GA Telesis and GA Telesis had no knowledge of the history of the parts.”

GA Telesis serves hundreds of airlines and aviation maintenance organizations worldwide offering aircraft, engines, components, maintenance and solution-based services.
