PRATT & WHITNEY CANADA LAUNCHES PT6A FLAT RATE OVERHAUL PROGRAM FURTHER EXPANDING ITS GAME-CHANGING P&WCSMART PORTFOLIO
New Program, Available through P&WC and its DOF Network, Delivers Reduced Costs, Simplifies Maintenance Planning, Extends Engine Life and Ensures P&WC’s High Quality Standards
Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) announced today the launch of a Flat Rate Overhaul program for PT6A engines providing a competitive capped price guarantee on select engine models. This game-changing program, available exclusively through P&WC and its Designated Overhaul Facilities (DOF) network, is the latest addition to the company’s expanding portfolio of P&WCSMART Maintenance Solutions that are helping operators plan their maintenance costs, avoid surprise expenses, minimize downtime and extend engine life.
“We have launched over 25 P&WCSMART solutions in just two years, covering PT6A, turboshaft and PW100 engines,” said Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam, Vice President, Commercial Services, P&WC. “Our ability to deliver superior quality, tailored maintenance cost guarantees adapted to our operators’ evolving business needs is what our customers greatly value. We are helping airlines and individual aircraft owners around the globe optimize maintenance through solutions that cater to the subtleties and intricacies of their respective businesses.”
The new flat rate program enables operators to plan their maintenance costs by setting a basic overhaul price, combined with a price cap that ensures there are no surprises if replacement parts are required beyond the basic overhaul scope. The flat rate also covers maintenance for typical corrosion or sulphidation, foreign object damage, replacement of non-P&WC parts with genuine P&WC components and more. The program is available through P&WC’s global service centre network and participating Designated Overhaul Facilities (DOFs) until December 31, 2016. It applies to complete PT6A-21, PT6A-27, PT6A-28, PT6A-41, PT6A-42 and PT6A-114 engines.
Launched in 2014, PT6 SMART is a suite of maintenance solutions targeted and tailored to extend the useful life of PT6A-powered aircraft that have been operating reliably for numerous years. While other engine manufacturers have recently announced they are revamping their maintenance programs, P&WC has proactively brought to market more than 25 new high-value tailored offerings since 2014.
The offers include parts discounts and credits, capped- and fixed-cost programs, new engine rebates, a flat-rate engine exchange, discounts on select engines purchased through our Fleet Enhancement Program.
“The response to our PT6 SMART maintenance solutions has far exceeded our expectations,” added Kumarasingam. “They are attracting repeat business and referrals, and this is driving us to expand our suite of services. Like all the other solutions we provide, the new flat rate overhaul program helps give operators the peace of mind that comes from greater bottom-line value combined with dependable P&WC engines.”
