In recent weeks, important contractual issues surrounding the A400M airlifter have been resolved. First, Airbus Military signed a formal agreement to amend the development and production contract with the seven European launch nations, represented by the OCCAR procurement agency.
Industria de Turbo Propulsores
Aeromaritime, a Rolls-Royce authorized maintenance, repair and overhaul center, is sharing space in Booth No. 320 with parent company Industria de Turbo Propulsores (ITP), which acquired the Aeromaritime group in 2008. ITP plans to extend its repair and overhaul business in the U.S. Aeromaritime, with facilities in the U.S.
Airbus Military will receive the first four flight test engines for the delayed A400M medium-lift transport by the end of the year, ending speculation that the TP400 engine program has run into serious difficulties.
Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has appointed Industria de Turbo Propulsores S.A. (ITP) of Spain as a designated overhaul facility for selected PW200 turboshafts.
Maria Della Posta, v-p of customer support at P&WC, said, “ITP will provide support for operators in Spain while offering all PW200 operators a greater choice of repair and overhaul services.”
