Covington Aircraft Engines has received certification renewal as a Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) designated overhaul facility. The certification allows Covington to carry out factory-authorized maintenance, warranty, and parts support work on 59 variants of the P&WC PT6A turboprop engine.

“Today marks the third renewal of our agreement with Pratt & Whitney Canada, and we simply could not ask for a better collaborator,” said Covington president Aaron Abbott. Covington’s history with P&WC extends to serving as a repair and overhaul facility for the Canadian engine manufacturer’s R-985 and R-1340 radial engines—a capability Covington continues to maintain.

Covington’s focus on the PT6A has given the company a depth of knowledge and technical expertise on the turbine engine series. In addition to its headquarters in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, Covington has a facility in Brazil and plans to add another one in the UK. Covington has a multi-million-dollar parts inventory, a fleet of PT6A rental engines, test cells, and mobile repair teams.
