Dallas-based Avatas Aerospace, an FAA-approved repair station specializing in the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A, has acquired Hyannis, Mass.-based Prime Turbines. Prime Turbines’ services include hot section inspections; power section and gas generator repair; and fuel nozzle and bleed valve overhaul and exchange for PT6 engines. Prime Turbines is also an authorized distributor of FAA PMA parts for PT6 hot sections. “The biggest benefit of this acquisition is that now Prime Turbines is able to offer complete overhauls to its customers,” said Joe Kolo, Avatas vice president of sales and marketing. “Until the acquisition it could provide only a major repair. The other benefit that we hope to pass along to Prime Turbines is that we have a full test cell on premise, so we’re able to do full performance test runs for all its customers. That just opens up a whole lot more opportunities for Prime.”
