Rolls Royce

Overhauling 300 large jet engines annually.

Texas Aero Engine Service LLC is the world’s largest Rolls-Royce RB211-535 engine overhaul shop.

An unprecedented 50/50 joint venture between American Airlines and Rolls-Royce, Texas Aero Engine Service LLC was formed in April 1998. TAESL repairs and overhauls the RB211 engine, featured on American’s Boeing 757 fleet, and the Trent 800 engine found on American’s Boeing 777 aircraft.

For Rolls-Royce, the joint venture provides a facility capable of overhauling the large and powerful Trent engines in support of its TotalCare programs. Currently, there are only three other facilities capable of accomplishing this work — one in the United Kingdom and two in Southeast Asia. For American, the business arrangement gives the airline a partner in sharing the costs of operating a large engine facility and an insight from the engine manufacturer perspective. TAESL is capable of overhauling 300 large jet engines annually in North America, offering the highest quality and most comprehensive service to their customers.

During our nine years of operation, we have revenues in excess of $2.7 billion — and with a substantial amount of business now from third-party engines, that revenue has grown 75% over the past five years. TAESL recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, and in 2007 a significant milestone was also reached: Our 1,500th engine overhaul.
