Vector Aerospace Renews Agreement with CommutAir
Vector Aerospace Corporation, independent provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, has announced that Vector Aerospace Engine Services – Atlantic (ES-A), has renewed its Engine Services Agreement with CommutAir, based in Cleveland, Ohio. Under the agreement, ES-A will provide CommutAir with engine repair and overhaul for the Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW123 series engines from its P&WC Distributor and Designated Overhaul Facility (DDOF) located in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The work performed in Summerside will be augmented by ES-A's four North American service centers, located in Atlanta, Georgia; Calgary, Alberta; Dallas, Texas; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. ES-A's Mobile Repair Team (MRT), which is designed around "Quick Turn Around Times" and is "Travel Ready" 24 hours a day, will also provide full support.
ES-A and SECA, a Vector Aerospace Company, are showcasing at Booth 2640 this year at NBAA, and will be highlighting their range of business aviation engine services.
“2014 is a year marked by continued expansion for ES-A,” says Jeff Poirier, president of ES-A “In November, we will officially open our new Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) for the PW150A turboprop engine.

“We have increased our focus on providing our customers with flexible, innovative ideas towards keeping their engines on wing," adds Poirier. "We have also heightened our Mobile Repair Team (MRT) capabilities and coverage worldwide and we continue to remain focused on offering our customers faster turn times on their engines.
