Dallas Airmotive to Open Pittsburgh Area Regional Turbine Center

DALLAS -- BBA Aviation Engine Repair and Overhaul company Dallas Airmotive has announced it will open a Regional Turbine Center (RTC) in the Pittsburgh, PA, area by the end of January 2008. The RTC will be situated at Washington County Airport (AFJ), about 20 miles south of Pittsburgh International Airport.

The 5,300-square-foot facility will initially provide Hot Section Inspection services for Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A and JT15D engines, fan repairs on JT15D, and power section repair on PT6A. The RTC will also offer field service support for aircraft operating these engine makes as well as the PW300 and PW500.

RTC operations will be managed by Jason Chambers, a four year veteran of Dallas Airmotive who has been working in the company’s field service organization in Pennsylvania.

“Jason has 17 years experience with P&WC engine products and their associated airframes,” states Dallas Airmotive vice president of customer service, Mike Cumnock. “He is well known and highly regarded by operators in Pennsylvania and the northeastern U.S. for his technical expertise and service skills. He’s a natural fit for this position.”

The new facility will bring to 10 the number of Regional Turbine Centers that Dallas Airmotive operates in North America and Europe. Dallas Airmotive’s RTC network is strategically located to bring quick-turn repair and inspection services to a variety of engine makes including TFE731, PT6A, JT15D, PW500, PW300 and RR250. Most RTC facilities are located on airports to facilitate fly-in service.
