Intercontinental Jet Service Corp. of Tulsa, Oklahoma announced that Grace on Wings has selected the installation of the TPE331 DASH 10AV engine upgrade on their MU-2. Grace on Wings operates the only Charity Air Ambulance service in the U S from their base in Indianapolis, Indiana. During the past three years they have operated 131 missions carrying non-ambulatory patients all over the United States. “Based on three years of operational experience we are convinced we selected the right airplane for our missions when we selected the MU-2. Considering all the options for engine overhaul, Grace on Wings selected the Dash 10s. The improved safety margins provided by the improved performance, lower major maintenance costs and reduction in fuel consumption were all convincing reasons in selecting the DASH 10AV engines” said Hal Blank, Chief Pilot for Grace on Wings.
Grace on Wings is a charitable organization that depends on donations from the public for their operations. In a unique business arrangement StandardAero, Intercontinental Jet Service Corp, and Honeywell have all partnered together to assist Grace on Wings in making this engine upgrade a reality. “We are pleased to partner with these companies and Grace on Wings to do a small part in providing a service that impact people’s lives in a very positive way”, said Dennis Braner President of IJSC.
The engines are presently being overhauled and converted to DASH 10AVs by the exclusive Honeywell DASH 10 conversion company, StandardAero in Augusta, Georgia. When the engine conversion is completed, the engines will be installed on the Grace on Wings MU-2 by Intercontinental Jet Service Corp in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Intercontinental Jet Service Corp is the exclusive installation facility for the DASH10T and DASH10AV engine which is available for the earlier model MU-2s.
