Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), has appointed Mapiex Aviation S.A. in Panama City as a designated maintenance facility (DMF) to maintain a number of PT6A, PT6C and PT6T engine models flown in Central America. Mapiex will provide both line maintenance and mobile repair team (MRT) services.

“We have seen growing demand for PT6 turboprop and turboshaft engines in Central America,” said Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam, vice president, customer service, Pratt & Whitney Canada. “We have worked with Mapiex for several years and know firsthand that they share our commitment to exceptional quality and customer service.”

“Our customers have many needs beyond engine overhaul,” said Kumarasingam. “Mapiex is the latest in our growing network of designated maintenance facilities. Through this network, we are able to serve our customers locally for their more frequent line maintenance needs, as well as mobile repair when necessary.”

This new DMF is the latest addition to our growing global network of more than 40 owned and designated maintenance facilities. Earlier this year, Pratt & Whitney appointed COHC Aviation Science & Technic Co., formerly Citic Offshore Helicopter Co. in Shenzhen, China as a designated maintenance facility to maintain PT6C-67C engines for Leonardo AW139 helicopter customers in China. The company also recently established facilities in North America and South America. These include two facilities for agricultural operators: Portage Aircraft Maintenance in Canada and ABA Manutenção de Aeronaves in Brazil. They also include two facilities in Brazil for general aviation and helicopter customers: Rico Taxi Aereo and Helipark, respectively. With the addition of Mapiex, the Pratt & Whitney global service network now offers line maintenance and mobile repair throughout the Americas.
