Delta TechOps is adding six variants of the GE CF34-8 engine to its list of aircraft engines eligible for MRO services.
The CF34-8 family powers Bombardier CRJ and Embraer E170s and E175s and has become an industry standard on 70-100 seat aircraft, so airlines have a critical need for expert CF34-8 engine maintenance.
The following CF34-8 variants are now available to the Delta TechOps MRO customers: CF34-8C5, CF34-8C5A1, CF34-8C5A2, CF34-8C5B1, CF34-8E5 and CF34-8E5A1.
“We’ve already serviced CF34 variants for over a decade, averaging over 100 annual shop visits. After initial ramp-up, supporting Delta Connection operators, and over a year of solid experience and service performance, we are very excited now to add the CF34-8 option to the robust engine portfolio for our MRO customers,” commented Jack Arehart, president of MRO services Delta TechOps. “With our industry leading turn-times for CF34 engines, now operators of the -8 variants have the option to rely on Delta’s vast airline and MRO experience.”
