GE Aviation's On Wing Support center in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky (KY) USA region is expanding to meet the growing demand for its engine repair services.

As part of this expansion, the center will move its operation into a new 68,000-square-foot facility in Florence, KY later this summer. The new facility site is just south of the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) and, when completed, will be more than twice the size of the current facility located in Hebron, KY. 

On Wing Support, which has been in operation near CVG airport since 1997, provides 24/7 full-service repair solutions for GE and CFM commercial engines, including the GEnxGE90CFM56 and CFM LEAP. Additionally, the team services smaller jet engines, including the CF34 and GE Honda HF120. The operation will also support the world's largest commercial engine - the GE9X - when it enters service.

"Over the past few years, our capabilities have expanded significantly to meet repair demands for GE Aviation's growing installed engine base," says James Crane, who leads GE Aviation's global On Wing Support operations. "This expansion will play an instrumental role in supporting our growing customer base."

Its team of nearly 50 employees perform a wide range of services, including remote borescope inspection, compressor top case repairs, fan case removal and installation, turbine module replacements and gearbox - and component replacements. The center offers 24-hour technician coverage for Aircraft On Ground (AOG).

Global coverage

GE's On Wing Support has a worldwide network with eight repair stations and more than 300 technicians, providing more than 4,500 rapid repair solutions yearly to more than 250 customers.
