The manufacturing rights to a fourth tranche of JT15D engine parts have been acquired by Ontic from Pratt & Whitney Canada, continuing a process begun in 2015. This latest tranche “adds significantly” to Ontic’s engine parts support, the manufacturer of OEM-licensed parts for legacy aircraft announced this week.
More than 6,700 JT15D engines were produced since the 1970s and the engine family powers a variety of business jets, including the Cessna Citation II and V, as well as the Beechjet 400A/400XP and its T1-A Jayhawk military equivalent. “The JT15D engine aligns with Ontic’s commitment to support legacy products,” said Ontic v-p and chief commercial officer Gareth Blackbird. “This continues the logical progression and expansion of our current services to our OEM partners.”
The parts in this latest tranche include sensors, vibration dampers, valve sleeves, and compressor veins, which will be manufactured and sold from Ontic’s Chatsworth, California facility. According to Ontic, these parts will continue to be distributed through Boeing Distribution (formerly Aviall).
