Powerplant agreement ties GE and MNG
CF34 operators in Turkey and central Asia will continue to have local access to maintenance and installation services as MNG Jets has retained its support agreement with engine manufacturer GE Aviation.

US-headquartered GE Aviation has renewed an agreement with Istanbul-based MNG Jet for the latter to continue to be an authorised service centre for its CF34-3 engines that power the Bombardier Challenger series.

This agreement gives MNG Jet authorisation to perform line maintenance inspections and routine installed engine maintenance, including removal and replacement of engines and engine components, as well as repair and overhaul services for CF34-3 engines.

“This authorised service centre agreement with MNG Jet will continue to enable our CF34 operators in Turkey and central Asia to have support nearby,” says GE vice president and general manager Brad Mottier.

Since its service entry in 1983 on the Challenger 601 business jet, the CF34 has earned a 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 all over the world. The CF34-3 engine powering the Challenger series has compiled an outstanding safety and reliability record, accumulating more than 12.1 million flight hours and 7.2 million cycles.

GE Aviation has more than 50 authorised service network sites across the globe for business and general aviation for M601, H80, CFM56, Passport and CF34 engines. This network enables customers to have access to OEM-quality service and support around the world.
