GENEVA, SWITZERLAND -- Pratt & Whitney Canada Customer Service Centre Europe GmbH, a joint-venture between Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) and MTU Maintenance, has appointed Aero-Dienst GmbH & Co. KG of Nuremberg, Germany, as a Recognized Maintenance Facility to provide maintenance support for PT6A, JT15D, and PW300 series engines. P&WC is a United Technologies company.

"In complement to P&WC's Amsterdam parts distribution centre, which increased parts availability in the region and reduced delivery time by over 50 per cent, we are continuing to build on our global customer support in Europe with the welcome addition of Aero-Dienst as a Recognized Maintenance Facility," says Geoffrey Corbeil, General Manager of P&WC CSC Europe GmbH.

As an internationally approved maintenance organization according to EASA/FAR Part-145, Aero-Dienst serves customers from all over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the U.S. and Southeast Asia in hangars at Nuremberg Airport in Germany.
