Vector Aerospace Engine Services-Atlantic (ES-A) has renewed its engine services agreement to provide CommutAir with comprehensive engine repair and overhaul support for the Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW123 series engines on the carrier’s Bombardier Q200 and A300 aircraft.
Vector will provide the support from its P&WC Distributor and Designated Overhaul Facility (DDOF) in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The work performed there will be augmented by ES-A's four North American service centres located in Atlanta, Georgia; Calgary, Alberta; Dallas, Texas; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. ES-A's Mobile Repair Team (MRT), which is designed around "Quick Turn Around Times" and is "Travel Ready" 24 hours a day, will also provide full support.
"We have been working with ES-A for the past 7 years and we continue to be very pleased with their outstanding level of service and support," remarked Joel Raymond, executive vice-president at CommutAir. "It's the superior quality, responsiveness and commitment provided by ES-A that allows CommutAir to provide safe, efficient and reliable air transportation for over 1.4 million passengers each year.”
"ES-A is thrilled to be renewing this services agreement with CommutAir to support their PW123 engine repair and overhaul requirements," responded Jeff Poirier, president of ES-A. “We are confident that ES-A's repair and overhaul practices coupled with our team of highly trained and professional people will continue to be of exceptional value and benefit to CommutAir.”
Specific terms of the agreement include engine repair, hot section inspections, testing, modifications and overhaul services on the PW123 engines.
