EPCOR, the AFI KLM E&M subsidiary specialising in the maintenance and repair of APUs and pneumatic systems, and Transavia have announced that they are renewing their existing support agreement regarding the Boeing 737.


GE Aviation and SA Airlink have signed a 10-year, TrueChoice Flight Hour agreement for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of the CF34-8E and CF34-10E engines powering three Embraer E170 and 10 Embraer E190 aircraft.


Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has signed a Fleet Management Program (FMP) agreement with Avianca to maintain its fleet of PW127N engines powering ATR72-600 aircraft. P&WC’s FMP plan is a long-term, all-inclusive, pay-per-hour engine maintenance plan that will include the rollout of P&WC’s FAST solution for advanced prognostics to Avianca’s PW127N fleet. The combination of P&WC’s FMP plan and FAST technology create a comprehensive solution for data-driven predictive and preventive engine and aircraft health management.


Tailored specifically to Avianca’s fleet needs, P&WC’s FMP plan is a flexible, high value engine management solution that helps support lower operating costs and simplifies fleet operations management. It also serves as a financial planning tool to support more efficient cash flow management, while allowing airlines to focus on their core business of passenger and cargo transportation. Under this programme, a P&WC-appointed team of experts, in conjunction with Avianca, will manage PW127 fleet maintenance to help deliver better returns on the customer’s investment, customer satisfaction, peace of mind and outstanding engine reliability.


On the advanced prognostics side, P&WC’s turnkey FAST solution will provide situational awareness about engine health, usage and trends by capturing, analysing and sending full-flight data intelligence wirelessly minutes after the pilot shuts down the engines. FAST technology goes beyond traditional prognostics to give customers a turnkey solution for a fully connected, data-driven engine for proactive and predictive enginehealth management. For Avianca’s fleet of ATR aircraft, the FAST solution will also help optimise engine performance by tracking the usage of‘boost’ and‘super boost’ modes, which the pilot can engage when additional power is required during takeoff. More than 1,200 FAST solutions have been delivered across numerous platforms, including 20 regional airlines.


Under the FMP plan, Avianca will have full coverage for scheduled events, basic unscheduled engine repairs, low-cycle fatigue replacement, engine condition trend monitoring and engine freight, along with guaranteed turnaround time, customised support and more.


The FMP agreement is with the three airlines supported by Avianca Holdings: Aerovias del Continente Americano; Aviateca; and Isleña de Inversiones (Isleña). Avianca Holdings is the first customer for the PW127N.


Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has signed an agreement with Air New Zealand to deliver an engine service and support programme covering more than 50 PW123M-powered Bombardier Q300 aircraft in the airline’s Air Nelson fleet and PW127M-powered ATR72-500/600 aircraft in the airline’s Mount Cook fleet. The agreement also includes installation of P&WC’s FAST solution for advanced prognostics and engine health management on aircraft. P&WC has introduced a new enhancement to FAST that automates propeller vibration trend monitoring. The new capabilities put propeller balancing maintenance in ‘on-condition’ mode for a predictive and optimised environment designed to reduce operating costs and pilot and mechanic workload.


Rolls-Royce has signed a long-term TotalCare service agreement with United Airlines to provide support for Trent XWB engines. This follows the airline’s announcement that it will update and expand the number of Airbus A350 XWB aircraft on order from 35 A350-1000 to 45 A350-900.


StandardAero was recently selected by Regional Jet, operating as Nordica Airlines, to provide MRO services for Honeywell RE220 APUs on its fleet of Bombardier CRJ700 and CRJ900 aircraft and for Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127M turboprops powering its fleet of ATR 72-600 aircraft.
