The UH1 Operators website at www.uh1ops.com is pleased to announce the launching of a new T53 Maintenance page sponsored by Airborne Engines Ltd (AEL). The new page will cover articles, tips, and information regarding the T53 engine which is operated by a majority of UH-1 operations. This page, like the existing UH-1 Maintenance page is an informative resource for UH1 Operators who follow the site.
“Our goal is to provide a new resource to UH-1 Operators seeking information on maintenance and operations of T53 engines,” Colin Kilmaster, Manager Engine Sales states, “After finding the UH1OPS.com website, we felt this was the perfect platform to share this information with UH1 Operators.”
Airborne Engines Ltd (AEL) established in 1991, first opened its doors in a small warehouse located in Richmond, BC Canada. Since its inception, Airborne has grown to become a Rolls Royce FIRST Network AMC in support of the M250 platform, as well as long standing Honeywell Service Center for T53 engines. With quality, integrity, and safety as the primary focus at AEL, we are second to none in delivering the highest quality of support and service when it comes to engine maintenance, repair and overhaul. With Mean Time Between Removal (MTBR) and average time on wing exceeding the industry average, we are proud to say that we are experts in what we do.
Over the last three years, AEL has undergone significant internal restructuring, expansion of capabilities, investment in spare parts and rotable assets, and tailoring of our business model, all with the emphasis on delivering maximum value to our existing and potential customers. Through recruitment of experienced aerospace industry and technical personnel, there is a renewed depth of industry knowledge within Airborne further enhancing an already technically sound group of dedicated engineers and support staff. Combined with our extensive in-house reworks capabilities, including specialized machining, non-destructive testing (NDT), plasma spray, welding, and expanded repair development in conjunction with our own DER and the OEM, controlling quality, cost, and turn-around time further supports our value proposition.
LEAN Manufacturing and Continuous Improvement have also been introduced to Airborne Engines. This philosophy has already shown efficiency advantages in the last twelve months, equating to cost savings and improved turn times for our customers. With our increased global outlook, support options customized to the needs of our customers, an industry leading warranty policy, Transport Canada Approved Training Organization (ATO), along with our corporate infrastructure under the M-International banner, the Airborne Team is poised to support the T53 operational community.
