AEF began join venture work in 1973 together with Lycoming of the US; the initial stage, produced T53-L-13B turbine engines for UH-1H helicopters and T53-L-701A turboprop engines for Taiwan Chung-Hsing Trainer. Later collaborations with Allied Signal included TFE731 tubofans for use with the advanced AT3 trainer followed by TFE1042 turbofan R&D and mass production for Taiwan’s IDF. All of these experiences combined together have resulted in the AEF of today, the one true cornerstone of aeroengine manufacturing in Taiwan.
AEF currently still provides ROCAF with logistic support, original components and spare parts for various planes; our major business however today is manufacturing for all of the major commercial aeroengine manufacturers in the world: General Electric Company (GE), Honeywell, Pratt & Whitney, and International Turbine Engine Company LLC (ITEC) all of the US, Rolls-Royce of England, Safran S.A. of France, Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI), IHI Corporation (IHI), and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) all of Japan, Ltd...
Fully equipped with all manner of production capabilities, AEF currently manufactures over 600 differing items covering the entire spectrum of aeroengine technologies destined for customers both domestic and international. Production of engine components applications.
