TAE, Australia’s foremost turbine engine maintenance provider, announced the opening of its new Turbine Engine Maintenance Facility at Adelaide Airport. TAE provides engine maintenance services for the Honeywell TPE331 and the P&WC PT6A turboprop
engines and the Hamilton Sundstrand APS500 and APS1000 auxiliary power units for customers across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region from its Adelaide Airport Facility. “It is a great day for TAE” said general manager, Andrew Sanderson. “This new facility now gives us a world class platform for our team to continue delivering great service to keep our customers flying today and offers new expansion possibilities to accommodate our planned growth into the Asia-Pacific region tomorrow. With the addition of this facility, TAE will be the largest independent turbine engine MRO provider in Australia, covering several engine types powering aircraft from the agricultural Air Tractor to the F-18 Super Hornet with more opportunities on the way”.
