Engine Assurance Program (EAP) celebrates its third NBAA
NBAA Orlando, FL / October 15, 2018 – Engine Assurance Program (EAP) is celebrating its third year at NBAA. EAP is the fast-growing, high-quality hourly engine maintenance program option for operators of TFE731-2, TFE731-3, TFE731-4, TFE731-5, JT15D-4 and JT15D-5 powered aircraft.
The Honeywell TFE731 and Pratt and Whitney JT15D power more than 3,000 business jets. While aircraft values have been declining for a decade, the cost of hourly engine maintenance programs has not. Using EAP’s oversight, the engines can be operated more economically.
“Most people think they are saving money by electing to fly without an engine program. More often than not, the perceived savings are matched dollar for dollar in lost airframe value,” said Sean Lynch, EAP program coordinator. “Maintaining engines on an engine program helps retain the value of the aircraft and ensures the equity in the engines is passed on to the next owner.”
Engine Assurance Program was created to make operating aging aircraft engines more economical. EAP focuses specifically on older engine platforms and saves owners money by charging an hourly rate that is much closer to the actual cost to maintain the engines.
EAP’s client roster is on a robust growth curve. Most operators are shocked when they realize the benefits and savings – ranging from $80-$100 per engine per hour – available to them using EAP’s hourly maintenance plan. EAP covers scheduled and unscheduled engine maintenance, including life-limited parts, LRUs, R&R, shipping, rentals, line maintenance and 24/7 access to Engine Assurance Program's AOG assistance. Catastrophic failure is covered, too. Operators get full coverage with only 75 hours as the yearly minimum.
The Engine Assurance Program (EAP) was formed to provide an affordable hourly engine maintenance program option for operators of TFE731-2, TFE731-3, TFE731-5, JT15D-4 and JT15D-5 -powered aircraft. The Honeywell TFE731 and Pratt and Whitney JT15D power more than 3,000 business jets. Using EAP’s oversight, the engines can be operated more economically. EAP is headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
