GA Telesis Engine Services OY - GATES, the engine heavy maintenance unit of global aviation integrator GA Telesis, LLC, announces the establishment of its dedicated Aircraft Engine Hospital Shop, focusing on specialized aircraft engine repairs requiring limited or targeted maintenance. The Special Procedures Aero-Engine Hospital - SPAH will be one of the few in the world with integrated test cell facilities capable of testing engines of up to 100,000 lbs of thrust.
