Pratt & Whitney launches Geared Turbofan Engine MRO network
Pratt & Whitney launched its Geared Turbofan PW1000G engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) network at the Farnborough Airshow, providing customer solutions that result in engines with longer time on-wing and lower fuel burn advantages. Pratt & Whitney will build on its existing comprehensive MRO network to locate facilities and customer service representatives around the world to provide rapid service for Geared Turbofan engine operators. To date, five engine overhaul centers have been initially selected to maintain the PW1000G fleet, strategically located in Asia, Europe and North America. All customer service representatives and facilities will be tooled, trained and ready to ensure fast, quality service. Additional providers may be added over time as appropriate.
