Delta TechOps to add CF6-B8F Engine work; Airbus Components capability

September 24, 2013 – Delta TechOps is making two big moves to conduct more maintenance, repair and overhaul work to support Delta’s flying and to offer additional options to MRO customers.

Delta TechOps has added the CF6-B8F engine, which powers Delta’s 767-400ER fleet, to its portfolio for short-term visits now and for extended visits in 2014. The division is also building a business case to expand test and repair capabilities for Airbus components.

“These are all big wins for Delta and our MRO customers,” said Don Mitacek, s.v.p.-Maintenance Operations. “Having the right product mix is foundational to ensuring we run a growing business while lowering our maintenance costs.” 

Short-term Field maintenance, better known as hospital visits, consists of less-intensive maintenance tasks that ensure engines continue to run to expected build life. Heavy maintenance visits include tasks like rotor and blade replacements, component repairs and overhaul. Delta has 21 767-400ER aircraft that fly from the U.S. to Europe and South America.

In another move to build up TechOps’ portfolio of services, the division is also building a business case to increase test and repair capabilities for Airbus components. This follows on recent investments in Airbus A319/A320 repair capability for brake manifolds and flight management system Multifunction Control/Display Units.

And, earlier this year, Delta TechOps announced it would add a CF34-8 engine line which stands to see about 100 engines from Delta Connection aircraft beginning in the first quarter of 2014.
