Pratt & Whitney Canada (Booth B3613) is promoting several new initiatives at this year’s Heli-Expo.
The company’s offerings include a new “remote maintenance kit” that can be stocked at customer facilities. The kit expedites routine maintenance, containing a collection of engine parts and tools including specialized cables, an ignition exciter and Stabilant 22 contact enhancer, boroscope guide tools, fuel and oil filter elements, retaining rings, and seals. The kit is designed to ameliorate supply chain disruptions and is available for customers enrolled in the company’s ESP support plans who operate engine models including the PT6C, PW207C, PW207C, PW206C, PW206B2/B3, and PW207D1/D2.
P&WC has also expanded its P&WCSmart portfolio with a flat-rate parts package with new major assembly parts replaced during scheduled clutch inspections on PT6T-3 engines; it offers the package for PT6T-3 reduction gearboxes to customers flying PT6T-3BE, PT6-3BG, PT6T-3D, PT6T-3DE, and PT6T-3DF TwinPac engines at a reduced price of $100,000. The parts package comes with a full OEM-level warranty and a $10,000 credit toward the next P&WCSmart overhaul of the same gearbox.
At the show, P&WC also plans to continue its year-long celebration of the 60th anniversary of its PT6 engine and the accumulation of one billion flight hours across its entire engine portfolio. The company also plans to honor a variety of significant customer milestones with presentations at its booth. They include operations anniversaries for a variety of air ambulance programs from operators including Arkansas Children’s Hospital, DRF (Germany), Life Flight Network, and Heli Austria.
