Helsinki, Finland – December 9, 2014 – GA Telesis Engine Services (“GATES”) continues to build on its successes with another strong year in 2014.  The Helsinki, Finland based Engine MRO has added three new customers to their clientele this year, in addition to completing overhaul services on a heavily work-scoped CF6 engine in a shop-record time of just 57 days.  GATES was also able to complete performance restoration on a CFM56-5B engine in a world-class turnaround time of 38 days.

GATES President Basil Papayoti commended his team for their hard work over the last year:  “I am extremely proud of our GATES team as they have made tremendous commercial and production strides in 2014.  I am also very pleased to say that GATES has had zero loss-days since its inception in 2013.  Safety has always been a top priority at GATES; our team is committed to making our shop an industry leader not only in repair and overhaul services, but also in proactive safety procedures and protocol.   We look forward to 2015, which already has a strong back log with our new and existing customers. ” The company will continue to expand its customer base and improve production efficiency in the upcoming year.   Starting in January 2015, GATES will officially launch a dedicated on-wing field team (GATES On-Wing or “GO”) to complement its offerings in the aviation marketplace.
