P&W pumps $30 million into Bridgeport
Pratt & Whitney's Bridgeport, West Virginia site will service the PW814GA and PW815GA powerplants that propel the Gulfstream G500 and G600, with the capacity to expand its capabilities to other PW800 models.
P&W are investing heavily in West Virginia MRO.

Pratt & Whitney is investing US$30 million in its engine services facility in Bridgeport, West Virginia for the MRO overhaul of PW800 engines. The site will service the PW814GA and PW815GA powerplants that propel the Gulfstream G500 and G600 aircraft, with the capacity to expand its capabilities to other PW800 engine models in the future.

“As part of the next phase of the successful entry into service of the PW800, we have chosen the Bridgeport facility to provide MRO services for the engine family. This decision was based on the site's wealth of technical expertise in business aviation engines and its excellent record in providing quality, speed and value for our customers,” says Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam, VP of customer service. “Adding the game-changing PW800 engine to its repertoire of business aviation engines will equip and upskill the facility with high value service engineering jobs.”

West Virginia governor Jim Justice adds: “Pratt & Whitney's decision to invest in its West Virginia site is incredible news and is a testament to the quality of our skilled workforce. “This outstanding company has been an integral part of the West Virginia aerospace community since 1971, and we are thrilled by its ongoing commitment to our great state.”
