Corporate Aircraft Group is widening its expertise and capability with a brand new commercial powerplant and APU support business for the airline industry.  Complete Engine Services (CES), launches this week having just obtained approvals from the UK Civil Aviation Authority, EASA (for Part 145 accreditation) and the FAA.

Having deployed significant investment in the latest state-of-the-art 3D videoscope and boreblend technology, CES is well positioned to undertake aircraft borescope inspections and boreblend repairs on a raft of commercial engines, both on and off wing.

Initial supported engine types will include CFM56-3/5/78; V2500, LEAP 1A/B; PW1100G and APU’s GTCP131-9A/B, GTCP36-Series & APS3200 with additional type capabilities coming online very soon.

The company acquired Chester, UK based business aviation MRO and paint specialist Aerocare Aviation Services in September last year.

Aviation MRO professional Jason Davies, supported by a team of highly experienced senior Borescope Engineers, will offer a raft of in-field service solutions 24/7, supporting end of lease, condition evaluation and AOG BSI activity.

“We are most excited to be widening the group’s expertise into engine health monitoring and Borescope inspections,” he said.  “Having held positive and productive talks with airline MROs and aircraft lessors, CES enters the market with a firm ‘consistent approach’ to Borescope inspections, utilising the very latest digital 3D tip measurement technology. “

CES is further enhancing the offering with the ELMS competency platform, which, combined, will provide our customers with a new and dynamic complete inspection package, he added.

“The launch of Complete Engine Services Ltd is a significant enhancement to The Complete Group.  It builds on our desire to further enlarge upon existing business relationships. The ability to synergise by way of existing group capabilities remains at the forefront of the group’s overall strategy to best serve our customers,” added CAG Head of Operations Alan Barnes. “The application of in-house digital technology and the highest levels of empowered staff, will enable this sector’s demands to be better served - and on a consistent reporting basis.”

“Our reputation in delivering strong customer interfaces, care and swift responses, underpinned by our state-of-the-art front end electronic technology, equips us well to deliver a consistent and high quality of service to our customers.   In researching our move into the powerplant support, this tops our operators’ wish list,” he stated.
