Turbine Engine Specialists to offer Honeywell support
A TES acquisition complements the significant investments made last year by sister company Killick Aerospace in acquiring the exclusive parts distributor agreements on the CL600/601 and Learjet 60 programmes.

Turbine Engine Specialists (TES), a subsidiary of the Killick Aerospace Group, has purchased the Honeywell 36-100 and 36-150 APU rental bank and will begin direct support from 18 January 2021. In addition, TES has announced Honeywell authorisation for new overhaul capability on the RE220GX APU and expects to be ready to support it in the first half of 2021.

“The TES brand of timely support, the quality of its workmanship and the skill and knowledge of its technicians have already attracted a loyal customer base. With the addition of the 36 Series APU rental bank and overhaul capability on the RE220GX APU it will move TES to the forefront of service providers in business aviation,” comments Russell Starr, CEO and president of Killick. “With these additional APU services we continue to enhance our product and services portfolio, between TES and Killick Aerospace, across many business aircraft programmes that will benefit our expanding customer base.”

The latest TES acquisition further complements the significant investments made last year by sister company Killick Aerospace in acquiring the exclusive parts distributor agreements on the CL600/601 and Learjet 60 programmes and large parts purchases on other business aircraft platforms. The ability to provide quality parts support, comprehensive engine and APU MRO services and the newly added 36 Series APU rental bank provides a broad support structure for many business aircraft programmes, including Bombardier, Textron, Embraer, Dassault and Gulfstream.

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, TES is authorised by Honeywell and General Electric. It provides specialised MRO support on engines and APUs for scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, including AOG rapid response.
