Spirit Aeronautics receives turbine engine service ratings from FAA


Spirit Aeronautics has expanded its FAA-approved capabilities list to include additional engine service ratings for turbine-powered (jet) engines.

“Our customers are always looking for ways to minimize downtime and enhance the value of the services they receive,” said Tony Bailey, president and COO of Spirit Aeronautics.

“For us, the objective has always been to increase our service offerings in a way that is responsive to our customer needs as well as responsible to our investors. One way to achieve that goal is the addition of complementary services to our core business offerings and the ability to offer service on Pratt & Whitney JT-15, Pratt & Whitney PW545, Williams International FJ44-4, Rolls-Royce AE 3007 and Honeywell (Garrett) TFE 731 engines fills that need. After working diligently with our FAA inspectors and demonstrating our abilities, we were granted the authorizations. We have also been granted the authority to add additional engine model types at will to our capabilities list, provided we meet the requirements contained in our repair station manual. It is indeed a great accomplishment!”

Authorizations on Spirit Aeronautics’ FAA-approved capabilities list include maintenance and alterations, avionics repair and modifications, installation of IFEC systems, interior refurbishment and alterations, and turbine engine service and repair. These authorizations span aircraft and engine types including BBJs, Bombardier Challengers and Globals, Cessna Citations, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce, Honeywell, Dassault Falcons, and Gulfstream GII through GVSP, Learjets and Beechcraft King Airs.

Spirit Aeronautics’ authorizations also include the P-51 and Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik LZN07-101 airship.
