iAero Thrust's Engine Test Center (ETC) adds CFM56-3 capability

The iAero Thrust ETC is the first and only testing facility in South Florida for the CFM56 engine line.


iAero Thrust, a leading engine maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) and engine testing provider focused on the CFM56 engine line and one of the companies within the iAero Group aviation investment platform, has developed, built, and opened a new state-of-the-art engine test cell facility in Medley, FL.

The ETC provides comprehensive engine testing and hospital visit services for the CFM56 engine line. It will test all engines serviced through the iAero Thrust MRO in Miami, FL as well as engines from third party MROs, lessors, and other engine operators. The ETC was designed and commissioned by Safran Test Cells and correlated by GE Aviation.

The ETC is now FAA certified to perform acceptance testing on the CFM56-3 engines in addition to the CFM56-7B engine.

"We are incredibly proud of our team for their resilience and hard work over the past two years to build, calibrate, and certify this new facility, and we are very excited to offer this new capability to our customers." said Tommy Mitchell, President iAero Thrust.  "Our state-of-the-art Engine Test Center is just another way we are scaling our integrated full-service engine MRO to serve the growing maintenance and testing demand for the all-time best-selling commercial aircraft engine in the world."
