Turbofan Engines

“One of the reasons we have been successful is because TAE Aerospace is a partner”

– Brian Hiner, F404/F414 Program Manager, GE Aviation

TAE Aerospace is Australia’s largest aerospace turbine engine Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) company.

We are committed partners to Defence. For more than a decade, we’ve helped the Royal Australian Air Force to achieve life cycle cost reductions, optimum asset reliability and the best possible on-time performance with their engines.

Together with our partners, we are the total logistics support manager for the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) fleet of GE F404 engines fitted to its F/A-18 Hornet aircraft and GE F414 engines fitted to the F/A-18F Super Hornets and EA-18G Growlers.  We also provide direct support to the Royal Malaysian Air Force to support their F404 engines.

Into the future, TAE Aerospace will be the Regional MRO&U responsibility in the Asia-Pacific region for the Pratt & Whitney F135 engine fitted to the new F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.  This capability will be operational for aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region in 2020.
