Military Turbofan Engines
“One of the reasons we have been successful is because TAE is a partner”
– Brian Hiner, F404/F414 Program Manager, GE Aviation
TAE is the only Australian-owned military gas turbine engine MRO provider and the largest engine MRO in Australia.
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.
We have recently extended our services to the Australian Defence Force by taking on responsibility for the AGT1500 turbine engine in the Australian Army’s Abrams tank and prior to this we were the sole provider of engine MRO services for the Australian military’s F-111 aircraft.
Into the future, TAE has now been assigned 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 developed over the next 3 years to be ready for aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region.
As Australia’s leading military gas turbine engine MRO operation, we have demonstrated success in managing military propulsion systems for many years across all elements of the program. We have an in-depth knowledge of military operating environments and we know how to work under performance-based contracts.
To ensure your on-time performance is the best it can be, we deliver an end-to-end engineering, repair and manufacturing capability that is second to none in our region.
TAE was Australia’s first military turbine engine through-life-support provider. Our commitment to quality work and excellent service has resulted in many awards over the past decade including the prestigious Defence Contractor of the Year award.
