Vector Aerospace reducing operators’ costs with flat rate overhauls for Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PT6A turboprop engines

Thursday, March 31, 2016

Summerside, PE – Vector Aerospace a global independent provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, is pleased to once again help operators of Pratt & Whitney Canada’s (P&WC’s) PT6A turboprop engines reduce maintenance costs and increase aircraft investment value through the introduction of flat rate overhauls. This initiative, applicable to PT6A-21, -27, -28, -41, -42 and -114 engine variants, is part of P&WC’s PT6SMARTTM Maintenance Solutions program.

Under this program, PT6A operators are able to take advantage of engine overhauls which are guaranteed not to exceed a pre-set capped price as follows*:

- PT6A-21:  US$205,000 basic flat O/H rate, capped at US$275,000 (per engine)
- PT6A-27:  US$245,000 basic flat O/H rate, capped at US$295,000 (per engine)
- PT6A-28:  US$245,000 basic flat O/H rate, capped at US$295,000 (per engine)
- PT6A-41:  US$225,000 basic flat O/H rate, capped at US$290,000 (per engine)
- PT6A-42:  US$235,000 basic flat O/H rate, capped at US$305,000 (per engine)
- PT6A-114:  US$225,000 basic flat O/H rate, capped at US$290,000 (per engine)

Operators taking advantage of this offer will not be charged any costs for the replacement of non-P&WC parts with new P&WC parts, or for typical corrosion or sulphidation.  Likewise, operators will not face any additional charges for foreign object damage (FOD), provided that FOD was not the cause of an unscheduled removal.  This initiative is offered for all complete eligible PT6A engines operated worldwide, including those on extended time between overhaul (TBO) programs.

Operators are able to take advantage of this offer at any of Vector Aerospace’s four P&WC PT6A Designated Overhaul Facilities (DOFs) worldwide, including:

- Vector Aerospace Australia (Pty) Ltd, Brisbane, AUSTRALIA
- Vector Aerospace Engine Services - Atlantic, Summerside, PE, CANADA
- Vector Aerospace - France, Gonesse, Paris, FRANCE
- Vector Aerospace Africa (Pty) Ltd., Lanseria, Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA

Commenting on Vector’s support of the P&WC PT6A flat rate overhaul program, Jeff Poirier, President of Vector's Engine Services - Atlantic division, said:  “As a leading independent provider of P&WC designated maintenance, repair and overhaul services for the PT6A engine family, we are delighted to work with Pratt & Whitney Canada to bring this flat rate overhaul initiative to the PT6A operator community through our global network of overhaul facilities. Vector is well-known for its commitment to minimizing our customers’ operating costs, for example through our extensive development of repair programs for the PT6A engine family, and this latest initiative provides a further way for operators to continue flying with the peace of mind that comes from knowing their engine overhaul costs will be capped.”
