D’viation in Malaysia and Mather Aviation in central California have been appointed as GE Honda Aero Engines’ two newest authorized service providers (ASPs), increasing the joint venture’s HF120 service network to 17 locations. The engine powers the HondaJet.
As ASPs, the companies will perform line maintenance and engine removal, as well as support rental engine use. ASPs also promote and facilitate GE Honda’s Engine Maintenance Care (EMC) program for warranty and program services. “We continue not only to expand our network to match the growing fleet, but we are also adjusting our EMC offering to accommodate our customer base and their operation,” said GE Honda executive v-p Shinji Tsukiyama.
The EMC program covers routine maintenance, spare engines, and all parts and labor for HF120 customers. Based in Burlington, North Carolina, the GE Honda joint venture was formed in 2004 to manage the HF120 engine program that was launched in 2006.
