DAO Aviation, a provider of aircraft services for business and corporate aircraft, has become a designated Honeywell-authorized TPE331 major level service center for the maintenance and service of the TPE331-1 to TPE331-14 series of turboprop engines.
Jimmy Andersen, president of DAO Aviation, said: “It is all about providing the best service to our customers. We have joined the Honeywell network because it enables us to secure spare parts delivery, address further customer segments and provide the most flexible solutions. As icing on the cake, we have used the opportunity to introduce the TPE331-14 model to our capability. I can’t wait to explore the new opportunities.”
John Bolton, Honeywell vice president, business and general aviation aftermarket, said: “Honeywell welcomes DAO into our global support network for the TPE331 engine. DAO’s mobile support teams and personnel expertise have a tremendous reputation of superior customer service that will benefit the growing fleet of TPE331 operators. The TPE331 turboprop engine, originally certified in 1965, has a long legacy of proven, outstanding power, reliability, fuel efficiency, and low cost of ownership. The fleet consists of more than 12,700 delivered engines and has accumulated more than 70 million hours of service.”
DAO operates at Roskilde Airport near Copenhagen. The airport serves more than half of the country’s general aviation aircraft and is also used by GA operators in Europe.
