Duncan Aviation’s facility in Lincoln, Nebraska, has been appointed a Designated Overhaul Facility for the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of PW300 and PW500 turbofan engines that will become operational over the next two years.
The PW300 is a popular engine among the Mid-Size Jet OEMs, being a highly dependable, fuel-efficient powerplant. Labeling it as “the ideal choice for corporate travel”, Pratt & Whitney describes the PW300 as “a quiet engine that combines performance, sustainability and value”.
The PW500, meanwhile, is designed for Light to Mid-Size business jet platforms and is building a reputation for its impressive maintenance intervals and easy on-wing maintenance. The PW500 engine family combines high performance and low fuel consumption with excellent operating economics.
“As our fleet of engines increases, we are taking proactive steps to ensure that we have fully operational MRO capabilities in place when and where our customers need them,” said Irene Makris, Vice President for Customer Service at Pratt & Whitney Canada.
“Duncan Aviation has extensive experience in the line maintenance and hot section inspection of both our PW300 and PW500 engines. Stepping into the official MRO role for these two engine families is the logical extension of our long-standing relationship with their team,” Makris added.
“Our company was founded in 1956 and over the years we have expanded our business to offer a full portfolio of services to the Business Aviation community,” said Jeff Lake, President, Duncan Aviation. “Our Lincoln team is delighted to provide MRO services to Pratt & Whitney Canada engine customers flying PW300 and PW500 engine models.”
