Air­lines, one of Ukraine's lead­ing air­lines, re­cently se­lected Tur­bony­coil 600, a syn­thetic stan­dard tur­bine ® oil, to be used on its fleet of Boe­ing 737 NG.

SkyUp's cur­rent fleet con­sists of 8 Boe­ing 737 air­craft in­clud­ing Boe­ing Next Gen­er­a­tion 737- 700 air­craft pow­ered by CFM56- 7B22 en­gines and the Boe­ing Next Gen­er­a­tion 737- 800 air­craft pow­ered by CFM56- 7B26 en­gines. SkyUp Air­lines and Boe­ing fi­nalised a firm or­der for the pur­chase of two Boe­ing 737 MAX 8 and three Boe­ing 737 MAX 10 due to be de­liv­ered in 2023 with the op­tion to pur­chase an­other five air­craft.

Ap­proved for use on Gen­eral Elec­tric GE90 en­gine fam­ily

Gen­eral Elec­tric re­cently ap­proved Tur­bony­coil 600 for use in Gen­eral Elec­tric GE90 en­gine which was specif­i­cally

® de­signed for the Boe­ing 777 air­craft. Its 115 000 lbs thrust ver­sion is the world's most pow­er­ful tur­bo­fan en­gine. This qual­i­fi­ca­tion en­ables NYCO to in­crease its sup­port for mixed fleet air­lines.

A ser­vice eval­u­a­tion on a few GE90 en­gines fol­low­ing the man­u­fac­turer's pro­ce­dures was led in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Air France. Air France's fleet in­cludes 70 Boe­ing 777 and al­ready uses Tur­bony­coil 600 on all its Air­bus A320 & A340

® air­craft.

“The suc­cess of the tur­bine oil eval­u­a­tion on some of our Boe­ing 777 en­gines shows that the prod­uct meets all the GE9O's op­er­a­tion re­quire­ments. This al­lows us to con­tem­plate a smooth tran­si­tion on the Boe­ing fleet com­pa­ra­ble to the one ex­pe­ri­enced on the Air­bus fleet.” Said Di­dier Verté, En­gine Fleets and En­gi­neer­ing Vice Pres­i­dent at Air France In­dus­tries.

Ap­proved against de­mand­ing spec­i­fi­ca­tions, in­clud­ing SAE AS5780 SPC Class and MIL- PRF- 23699 F STD Class, Tur­bony­coil 600 is ap­proved by all ma­jor en­gine

® man­u­fac­tur­ers ( Gen­eral Elec­tric, Pratt & Whit­ney, Pratt & Whit­ney Canada, Rolls- Royce, Snecma, Tur­bomeca, CFMI, Klimov, Mo­tor Sich, Avi­ad­vi­ga­tel). It has logged more than 30 years of experience in jet en­gines of mil­i­tary and com­mer­cial air­craft.
