GE Aviation names Bombardier’s London Biggin Hill Service Centre as Authorized Service Centre for CF34 engines
LAS VEGAS – October 10, 2017 –GE Aviation has added the Bombardier Service Centre at London Biggin Hill Airport in the United Kingdom to its business jet Authorized Service Centre network to support CF34 engines.
Located 12 miles from central London, Bombardier inaugurated the London Biggin Hill location in May. Engine services at the site include line maintenance inspections and routine installed engine maintenance. This includes the removal and replacement of engines and engine components. The new 4,790-square-meter facility is fully equipped to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, as well as modifications and avionics installations for Bombardier Learjet, Challenger and Global aircraft..
London Biggin Hill joins six other Bombardier Service Centres already in GE’s network: Singapore, Hartford, Fort Lauderdale, Dallas, Wichita, and Tucson.
“GE’s enduring and collaborative relationship with Bombardier continues as we expand our service network around the world,” said Brad Mottier, vice president and general manager of GE Aviation’s Business & General Aviation and Integrated Services organization. “Together, we strive to provide service and support that exceed our customers’ expectations for quality and timeliness. These new locations offer additional convenience for our customers so we can meet their needs globally, wherever they need us.”
With this addition, GE Aviation now has more than 50 authorized service network sites across the globe for business and general aviation for M601, H80, CFM56, and CF34 engines. This network enables customers to have access to OEM-quality service and support around the world.
Since its service entry in 1983 on the Challenger 601 business jet, the CF34 has earned an industry-leading reputation as one of the cleanest, quietest and most fuel-efficient engines in its class. These rugged, airliner-class powerplants set a new standard in corporate aviation for reliability and low maintenance costs.
Across the CF34 family, GE has delivered more than 7,000 engines and continuously invests in product enhancements. Today, CF34 engines are in service with more than 900 business jet operators in more than 80 countries.

Looking far ahead while delivering today, Bombardier is evolving mobility worldwide by answering the call for more efficient, sustainable and enjoyable transportation everywhere.
