Pratt & Whitney Canada CSC (Africa) is offering engine overhaul services following an expansion project at its South Africa facility located at the Lanseria International Airport in Johannesburg. The facility now offers comprehensive engine overhaul services for the PT6A.

“We are proud to be able to provide full PT6A overhaul service for our growing customer base in central and southern Africa,” said Juergen Pilot, director, CSC Africa. “We are already capitalizing on the new strategically planned layout to process engines. We have optimized the process to ensure a high-efficiency operation,” he said.
