3TOP Aviation Services receives a custom built used CF6 engine through GE TrueChoice Transitions
FARNBOROUGH, UK -- GE Aviation delivered a custom built used CF6-80C2 engine to 3TOP Aviation Services late last month as part of its TrueChoiceTM Transitions agreement.
Under the TrueChoice Transition agreement, GE Aviation acquired a used CF6-80C2 engine and overhauled it based on the 3TOP Aviation’s requirements using a custom workscope with high-quality OEM material, delivering it when the customer wanted at the agreed price.
“The acquisition of the CF6-80C2 engine is in line with our strategic plan to continually acquire targeted assets and fulfil our goal of becoming a strong and reliable industry source for engines and other major assets,” said Chris Emechete, Managing Director & CEO of 3TOP. “The GE Aviation team went above and beyond with their support, responsiveness, and timely delivery of our engine to accommodate our changing needs and showed why they are truly a first-class service provider.”
“As an established and fast-growing part of the Aviation market, we look forward to working alongside 3TOP and supporting their growth over the coming years,” says Jean Lydon-Rodgers, president and chief executive officer of GE Aviation’s Services organization.
The TrueChoice suite of engine maintenance offerings incorporates an array of GE capabilities and customization across an engine's lifecycle. TrueChoice Transitions includes a range of options for changing ownership horizons, such as green time leases, used engines for sale or exchanges and material buy-back, plus customized workscopes with shorter builds and maximum used material. All TrueChoice engines have the full benefit of being TRUEngines. For lessors, GE offers products specifically designed to accommodate a change in owner or operator. Each of the TrueChoice offerings is underpinned by GE Aviation's data and analytic capabilities and experience to help reduce maintenance burden and service disruptions for customers.
