United Turbine Parts (UTP) lays claim to being the world’s leading independent supplier of Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100 and PT6 engines and components. With Latin America having a growing fleet of aircraft powered by these turbine engines, the region is an important growth market for the U.S. company.
For more than two decades, UTP has been buying engines and components, having them overhauled by a network of leading repair stations around the world and then reselling them to operators. The overhauled engines and components are fully covered by FAA dual-release approval and carry the required 8130 tags.
UTP’s 50,000-sq-ft (4,645-sq-m) warehouse in Prattville, Alabama, is fully stocked with PW100 and PT6 engines, parts and accessories. The company has a Spanish-speaking customer support representative on staff. It prides itself on dispatching equipment very quickly to operators to get their aircraft flying again.
