Dear Operators,

My airport has been approached about a possible business development play involving an "engine test cell" or test cell site for turbine engines. Does anyone have experience with this, or have a similar operation at your airport? I know this is a fairly vague question, but I confess that I am not familiar with such an operations aside from what a quick Google search has provided. I'm just looking for some information to make sure we ask the right questions. Any knowledge or insight is greatly appreciated.

Depending on what specifically you're looking for, I would check with GPT to see if they can put you in contact with the right people.  I know that the Air Guard side of the field has a helicopter maintenance facility that regularly mounted their engines to a cart and ran them up for long periods of time.
