n Roskilde, Denmark, a picturesque, ancient city
known for its seafaring ancestors, DAO Aviation
keeps aircraft sailing the skies. The European
Aviation Safety Agency Part 145 service center
provides maintenance, airframe and avionics services
for helicopters and fixed-wing
aircraft. During the last 31 years,
it has built a reputation for
specializing in Garrett/Honeywell
TPE 331 engines.
"DAO is one of five authorized
Honeywell TPE heavy service
centers in the world," said Troels
M. Lund, vice president and
technical director. "We repair or overhaul about 100
engines a year on average."
More than a maintenance and repair operation, DAO
Aviation also is an EASA Part 21J design organization
authorized to develop and certify major supplemental
type certificates as well as minor changes. Having
design organization approval allows for in-house
turnkey design and engineering for all types of aircraft
installations and modifications. Some of the company's
STCs include special mission configurations, satellite

communication and tracking systems, cabin interiors
and more.
In 2011, the two specialties came together under
one roof after DAO Aviation merged with Dansk
Fly Elektronik. DAO maintained turboprop aircraft,
especially those with Garret/
Honeywell TPE331 engines.
DFE specialized in avionics, as
well as designing and certifying
installations and structural
changes. Today, operators enjoy
a one-stop shop for all of their
aircraft needs.
To support customers, DAO
Aviation's mobile avionics and engine teams even travel
around the world.
"We'll go to places to like Nepal, Fiji, Indonesia,
Thailand and India to solve an operator's problem, or
we'll take their engine back to the shop to bring it back
to life," Lund said. "The avionics team travels, too, but
not as extensively as the engine team."
DAO's fast response time and go-anywhere approach
offsets the service center's slightly higher prices,
according to Lund.
