Vector Aerospace Engine Services – Atlantic (ES-A) hosted two day events for customers of the PT6A turboprop engines, in conjunction with Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC), at its designated overhaul facility in Brisbane, Australia and at its service centre in Nairobi, Kenya.

“These events give us a chance to reconnect in a meaningful way with our customers, who are the core of our business,” says Jeff Poirier, president of ES-A. “Attendees are given the opportunity to learn more about the PT6A turboprop engine and meet with true turboprop experts. We were very fortunate to have a representative from P&WC’s customer service team, along with members from Vector’s team on hand during both events.”

“Capital Airlines Limited wishes to thank ES-A for organising a very informative and interesting customer day for PT6A engine operators in Nairobi,” says Captain Himat Vaghela, owner and managing director of Capital Airlines Limited, who attended the customer day event in Nairobi.

“The inclusion of P&WC and Blackhawk Modifications added great value to the proceedings. We have a long standing relationship with ES-A relating to overhauls and repairs of our Kingair-200 -41 engines. They have provided exceptional service, support and cost effective solutions that cater to our requirements,” added Captain Vaghela.

ES-A’s facility in Nairobi offers field service and engine line maintenance services on the P&WC PT6A and PW100 engine series. ES-A’s Brisbane location meanwhile is a  P&WC designated overhaul facility for the PT6A family of engines which also offers mobile repair team (MRT) support for a range of additional P&WC powerplants.
