“Our FADEC repair services help airlines reduce maintenance costs and
extend the life of their aircraft,” said Dr. Ehtisham Siddiqui, vice
president and general manager of Commercial Aircraft Solutions at BAE
Systems. “By expanding our worldwide service network into Singapore,
we’re bringing better maintenance closer to our Asian customers.”
SEA’s repair capabilities will help maximize aircraft availability for
FADEC International’s customers. The newly authorized SEA FADEC Repair
Center will provide Level 2 FADEC maintenance for the FADEC
International products on the CFM56-7B, CFM56-5C, CFM56-5B, GE90-115,
CF6-80E engines (and GEnx-1B, GEnx-2B from 2015). In addition to the new
FADEC Repair Center, BAE Systems also has a full maintenance, repair,
and overhaul facility in Singapore to complement its aftermarket service
offerings in the region.
“Providing avionics repair maintenance services for more than a decade
in the Asia-Pacific region, Safran Electronics Asia, a subsidiary of
Sagem, will now bring to all the Asian operators its long-term
experience and quality of services on their FADEC equipment,” says
Jean-Paul Alary, general manager of the Safran Electronics Division at
The FADEC solution is a redundant computer system that reduces pilot
workload and increases efficiencies by electronically monitoring and
adjusting aircraft engines for proper and smooth operation. Rather than
a pilot manually adjusting throttles and controls, the FADEC controls
all aspects of engine performance, such as fuel flow, variable engine
geometries, and overspeed protection, as well as interfacing with the
engine thrust reverser.
Through FADEC International, BAE Systems and Sagem (Safran group),
develop, manufacture, and support high-reliability aircraft electronics
for harsh engine environments. The company serves airlines and aircraft
maintenance and repair providers with a full range of aftermarket
capabilities. Leveraging extensive knowledge of severe engine
environments, FADEC design attributes, and repair history, FADEC
International has developed a robust process that helps customers
decrease costs, simplify maintenance, and enhance their services.
FADEC International is a 50-50 joint venture between a subsidiary
of BAE Systems Controls Inc. and Sagem (Safran group), that focuses the
two companies’ capabilities to design, produce, and support
Full-Authority Digital Electronic Controls for commercial aircraft
engines. For more than 25 years, FADEC International and its member
companies have served airlines and aircraft maintenance and repair
providers with a full range of design and aftermarket capabilities.
