Delta TechOps’ aviation maintenance technicians have completed the first comprehensive maintenance visit of a PW1100G-JM engine. This next-generation engine will power Delta’s future A321neo aircraft and is part of Pratt & Whitney’s GTF engine family, covering five aircraft platforms.

This PW1100G-JM induction was a heavy maintenance visit where the engine was almost fully disassembled to perform targeted hardware upgrades. The full disassembly allowed for Delta TechOps teams to train, achieve certification to perform PW1100G-JM procedures, and start development of in-house repair capability as a P&W disassembly, assembly, and testing center.
