Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has awarded Distributor and Designated Overhaul Facility (DDOF) authorisation to Covington Aircraft Engines for the repair and overhaul of the P&WC PT6A engine series.
Covington, based in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, was formerly a P&WC Agricultural Service Centre for PT6A engines used in agricultural applications. As a DDOF, it will now expand its service offering to cover a wider range of PT6A engines across other markets.
"Over the course of our 16-year relationship, Covington has built a solid reputation for outstanding customer service in the agricultural market, which we are confident it will establish in other markets," said Raffaele Virgili, vice-president, customer service at Pratt & Whitney Canada. "[This] announcement is part of Pratt &Whitney Canada’s continuing effort to enhance the support services we provide our engine customers."
