Mobile Engine Services - Engine rescue on-site

Mobile Engine Services

Engine rescue on-site


We keep on supporting you

Our four Mobile Engine Service stations are fully operational and offer flexible solutions. We currently have stations in Frankfurt (Germany), Montreal (Canada), Tulsa (USA) and Shenzhen (China), which continue to operate without restrictions and offer the full services spectrum for CFM56-5B/-7B and V2500 engines.

By resolving only specific technical issues we can avoid a full performance restoration shop visit and our small surgical interventions get engines back in shape in a cash-flow-saving way. In case of only minor defects our Mobile Engine Services offer a reasonable alternative to find fast and cost-effective repair solutions. We offer more than 40 products and individualized events for specific problems, covering a wide range of defects for the most common engine types. The repair options range from boroscopy on wing to fan blade replacement, the replacement of an HPT blade or even a complete combustion chamber.

New repair station opens in Dublin

Starting in October 2020, we will extend our Mobile Engine Services network and operate InFIELD and InSTATION from Dublin, Ireland. Located in the major center of the EMEA aircraft leasing community and close to our airline customers in the British Isles, we double the number of European repair stations for our smart surgical engine repair solutions. These solutions extend an engine's time-on-wing and, during these times of crisis, enable you to postpone or even avoid cash-intensive major overhaul shop visits. More than 20 highly skilled technicians will perform a broad portfolio of repair services. 

Local power worldwide

Aircraft engines are built for one purpose only: to power aircraft around the world. We do everything to ensure that downtime is kept to a minimum so that your engines can fulfill this mission. Keeping engines on-wing is the best option, repairing them close to where the aircraft is operated is the next. We dedicate our services to find the fastest and most cost-efficient solution for your engine maintenance requirement. To avoid time-consuming full load shop visits, our Mobile Engine Services offer three types of services:

  • InOPERATION services: Cyclean® engine wash and AeroTRACER smell and leak detection can be easily integrated into your operations without any interruption of your schedule.
  • InFIELD services: our mechanics bring all the required material, equipment and tools and get your engines up and running again - wherever you are.
  • InSTATION services: more complex repairs can be performed at one of our facilities close to your home base.
InFIELD services

The engine rescue brigade

Our InFIELD services are performed by our AST® Teams - our experts for the global on-site support of engines. More than 250 mechanics worldwide are standing by to fly to your aircraft's location 24/7 and get your engines up and running again. They offer innovative services ranging from troubleshooting to scheduled maintenance, from inspection to quick engine and module changes. Conveniently, the expert teams will bring all required material, equipment and tools with them.


… InFIELD events are handled by our engine specialists per year

Whenever it is possible, our engine specialists will perform the work on-wing. Only if necessary, the engine will be removed and serviced on-site. Our teams are fast and reliable problem solvers – they minimize the impact on aircraft operations, reduce the maintenance costs and mitigate the risk of work scope extensions.

InSTATION services

Your regional repair station

Our InSTATION services comprise a number of smart and surgical engine repair solutions and enable you to avoid or postpone major shop visits. This approach not only reduces costs by focusing on minimum workscopes, but also generates savings through shorter turnaround times and decreased transportation costs. Four repair stations are already in place with more to be opened in the future. The surgical engine repairs range from module replacements to replacements of hot section parts and are performed on V2500 and CFM56 engines. Our main goal is to bring your engines back in the air as fast as possible and sustainably reduce your total MRO costs.
