EAP casts engine support net wider
Flushed with success from a growing customer base, Engine Assurance Program has added three new engine types and seven new aircraft to its service offering.

Hourly engine maintenance programme Engine Assurance Program (EAP), known for its support of the TFE731 engine and its variants, has added the PW305A/B, Tay 611-8 and CF34-3A-3A1 to its portfolio. The engines power the Lear 60/XR, Hawker 1000, Gulfstream GIV/SP and Challenger 601 1A/3A.

“Clients have been asking us to extend coverage to these engines. They fit our mission of supporting older engine platforms and of helping owners save money. No EAP clients have ever missed a trip because of an AOG issue either. When a customer calls with an unscheduled engine issue, we jump into action until the engine is returned to service. We will fight hard as long as we can to keep our track record flawless and keep our customers in the air,” says programme coordinator Sean Lynch.

EAP's oversight helps operators with dispatch reliability, increased residual value and significant cost savings, often as much as $80-$120 per engine per hour. It uses the same high quality engine MRO shops as its competing programmes, and covers scheduled and unscheduled engine maintenance including life-limited parts, LRUs, R&R, shipping, rentals, line maintenance and 24/7 access to its AOG assistance. Catastrophic coverage is also included. Operators get full coverage with only 75 hours as the yearly minimum. APU coverage also is available.

“The EAP difference is clear, which is why we have doubled our enrollments each year since launching and we're still growing. Operators get simpler contracts along with quality parts and services. The most significant way to maintain an aircraft's value is to maintain its engines, so the fact that EAP offers comprehensive coverage for 30 per cent less cost is an excellent way to save money while preserving the value of the asset,” adds Lynch.
