GA Telesis Launches “iGEAR” Program to Address Airline Needs for Aftermarket Reliability and Cost Savings
Fort Lauderdale, Florida – March 7, 2016 – GA Telesis, LLC announces the launch of iGEAR (Intelligent Global Engine & Airframe Replenishment), as an enhancement to the company’s portfolio of current program services. Through the iGEAR programs, GA Telesis will be the only company capable of a customizable program covering flight-hour and supply-chain programs that will combine component supply-chain with aerostructure and engine maintenance for commercial airline fleets. GA Telesis’s Component Solutions Group will leverage its $200 million inventory to provide consistent program-based engine supply chain solutions, as well as airframe flight hour rotable repair and exchange support; both of which can be tied to an engine services agreement with comprehensive engine overhaul and maintenance. As part of iGEAR programs, GA Telesis’s Composite Repair Group, Component Repair Group Southeast, and GA Telesis Engine Services divisions will provide competitive repair services to reduce inventory ownership costs for airlines in need of customizable repair management solutions. Dedicated AOG support will be offered with iGEAR programs, utilizing the company’s Live AOG service center. The Company intends to announce its launch customer at AW’s MRO Americas 2016 in Dallas, TX.
“We have listened to our customers and developed innovative cost-reducing programs in response to their stated needs. The changing dynamics of the airline and MRO industries have caused a major gap in the aftermarket support of airlines,” said Jason Reed, President of GA Telesis’s Component Solutions Group. “There is no other company worldwide that has the combined inventory levels, supply-chain expertise, and comprehensive MRO services that GA Telesis does which align with the airlines’ need for reliability and year-on-year reduction in CASM,” he added.
