Australia Leads F-35 Regional Maintenance

TAE Aerospace Maintains First Engine Fan Module Outside US

The first engine fan module for an Australian F-35 has undergone routine maintenance at TAE Aerospace in Bundamba, the Department of Defence in Canberra announced on 17 July.

This key milestone marks just how high Australian defence companies have begun to fly, according to Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price. “By maintaining and repairing the F-35 engines in Australia, we can get these planes back in the air quicker, while also creating skilled jobs for many Australians […] And in a world first, this type of engine work was the first to ever be completed outside of the United States, representing a significant new step for TAE Aerospace and the Australian defence industry.”

2020 is proving to be a year of milestones for 100% Australian-owned TAE Aerospace, which in May celebrated its 20th year in the aerospace industry. “TAE’s recent achievements are a testament to the importance of defence industry in contributing to our economy and our footprint in the global F-35 programme,” the Minister concluded.
