Dallas Airmotive’s regional turbine center (RTC) in Brazil has expanded its capabilities to provide hot section inspections for Pratt & Whitney (P&W) PW500 family engines found on the Embraer Phenom 300 and Cessna Citation Bravo, Excel, Encore, and XLS-series twinjets, the Signature Aviation Global Engine Services company announced. The move continues an expansion of Dallas Airmotive’s portfolio of engine and APU support at the RTC.
“With the growth of PW500-powered aircraft in the region, adding PW500 hot section inspection capability was a natural extension of the multiple engine services our Brazil RTC provides customers each and every day,” said Dallas Airmotive v-p of sales and service Jeff Turner. The Brazil RTC also will be able to provide service to operators who participate in the P&W Canada Eagle service plan.
In addition to the PW500, the Brazil RTC is approved by ANAC to provide maintenance for P&W PT6A and JT15D engines and Honeywell TFE731 engines, regardless of whether they're enrolled in a maintenance plan. Located in Belo Horizonte, the facility also provides line maintenance for Honeywell HTF7000 engines and 36-series APUs.
