P&W adds Mapiex in Panama to network
The best FBO in South America according to Pro Pilot's latest survey; Mapiex in Panama City is the latest to join the Pratt & Whitney designated maintenance facility network for PT6 customers.
Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam has tasked Mapiex with maintenance to meet the growing demand for PT6 engines in Central America.

Pratt & Whitney Canada has appointed Mapiex Aviation 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,” says vice president, customer service Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam. “We have worked with Mapiex for several years and know first hand that it shares our commitment to exceptional quality and customer service.”

Mapiex will provide maintenance services for PT6A-21, PT6A-27, PT6A-28, PT6A-34AG, PT6A-52, PT6A-60A, PT6A-114A, PT6A-135A, PT6A-140A, PT6C-67C, PT6T-3B, PT6T-3D and PT6T-3DF engines, serving operators in Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.

“Our customers have many needs beyond engine overhaul,” adds 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 P&W's network of more than 40 owned and designated maintenance facilities. Earlier this year it appointed COHC Aviation Science & Technic in Shenzhen, China as a DMF for PT6C-67C engines for Leonardo AW139 helicopter customers in China, and recently established facilities in North and South America through Rico Taxi Aereo and Helipark. With the addition of Mapiex, the P&W global service network now offers line maintenance and mobile repair throughout the Americas.
