Avio Aero, a GE Aviation Business, is a leading player in the design, manufacture and maintenance of civil and military aeronautics components and systems. Avio Aero acts as the center of excellence for the entire General Electric Group in the field of mechanical transmissions and low-pressure turbines. Italy is home to the head office, as well as plants based in Turin, Pomigliano d’Arco (Naples) and Brindisi. Around the world, the company has approximately 4,700 employees, of which approximately 4,000 are in Italy and has plants also in Poland, Brazil and China.

Avio Aero’s history dates back to 1908, and for more than a century the company has been at the forefront of countless technological challenges. Through its constant investments in research and development and with the support of an established network of relationships with major international universities and research centers, Avio Aero has garnered a position of technological and manufacturing leadership that is acknowledged at a global level, as also borne out by the partnerships struck with some of the most important players in the aeronautics industry.

Avio Aero is present on the principle civil air transport applications with its own components and systems: from business jets to regional transport, and to engines for medium-long range aircraft of the main global constructors.

The Company is leader in the design, development and production of mechanical and power transmissions, low-pressure turbines and combustors that, thanks to their confirmed reliability, are installed on the engines of the main OEMs worldwide.

Avio Aero supplies repair of modules and components for civil engines (CRO) designed and developed by the Company.

In the military sector, Avio Aero designs and manufactures subsystems and components for aeronautical engines, such as low-pressure turbines, power transmissions, accessory drive gearboxes and afterburners. Avio Aero also develops auxiliary power units (APU) and engine electronic control systems.
Avio Aero is the preferred supplier of aircraft engines for the Italian Armed Forces and acts as systems integrators responsible for assembly, testing, certification, delivery and supply of logistical support.

Avio Aero in Pomigliano d’Arco (Napoli), Brindisi and two additional sites in the Netherlands (DutchAero) and Brazil (Avio do Brasil), performs maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for military engines, and repairs modules and components (CRO) designed and developed by the Company.
Avio Aero provides overhaul services for aircraft derivative turbines used in maritime and industrial applications.

Avio Aero has worked for many years in the design and production of components for aeroderivative gas turbines (the LM2500 family) installed on board vessels. Among the most important projects are the Italian Navy’s aircraft carrier, the Cavour, and the Italian-French FREMM frigates. Avio Aero also produces electrical systems such as the platform simulation system, the turbine control system and the tactical table for marine applications.

Energy & Industrial
Avio Aero operates in the electric energy production sector. The Company produces components for the LM2500 and LMS100 aeroderivative gas turbines used in energy production. They integrate routine activities carried out by electric power stations when faced with sudden spikes in energy requirements. Avio Aero's electronic and electrical systems are also used in this sector.
