GE, TAE begin advanced engine work for U.S. Navy in Australia

GE Aviation and TAE Aerospace will support advanced engine work in Australia for the United States Navy’s fleet of F414 engines.

Under the GE Total Logistics Support program, the U.S. Navy’s F414 engines will receive prime logistics support in Australia, with selected repairs to be carried out on engine components using the expertise of GE and its partner, Queensland-based TAE Aerospace.

While the U.S. Navy traditionally conducts its depot repair work at facilities in the U.S. in partnership with GE, the success of GE and TAE in supporting the RAAF F414 fleet over the past decade encouraged consideration of a program based in Australia. Since 2011, program service and availability requirements were met or exceeded, as measured on a monthly basis.

These repairs will be completed at TAE’s dedicated facility in Brisbane. The first U.S. Navy components are scheduled to be completed in August.
