Two companies expanded their MRO networks this week. Pratt & Whitney Canada named Scandinavian Aircraft Technologies (ScanTech) of Denmark as a recognized maintenance facility for its PT6A, JT15D and PW100 series engines. This appointment provides P&WC engine customers in Scandinavia better access to maintenance, spare parts and a pool of rental engines.
ScanTech, an EASA Part 145 repair station located at Sindal Airport, will maintain PT6A and JT15D series engines, equipped with complete heavy maintenance tool kits for on-site, on-wing hot section inspection and gearbox repairs. It will also provide borescope inspections for PW100 series engines.
In addition, Bombardier appointed Gate V Aircraft Maintenance in Vienna, Austria, as an aircraft on ground (AOG)/line maintenance facility for Learjet aircraft. Gate V is the fourth service facility that Bombardier has added to its European customer service network in the past six months and is the 12th facility supporting Bombardier aircraft in Europe. The bizjet manufacturer said the Vienna airport gets about 60 corporate aircraft flights there daily.
In related news, Lufthansa Bombardier Aviation Services announced it will start providing AOG support for Bombardier business jets at Munich’s Franz Josef Strauss Airport in January. The Munich satellite station will be open 24/7.
