Dallas' Brazil centre to provide PW500 hot section inspections
The Brazil RTC is ANAC-approved to provide maintenance for Pratt & Whitney's PT6A, PW500 and JT15D engines and Honeywell's TFE731 MSP and non-MSP engines. It can work on Phenoms and a range of Citations.
There are a growing number of PW500 powered aircraft in Brazil.

Dallas Airmotive, a Signature Aviation Global Engine Services (GES) company, has announced that its Brazilian regional turbine centre (RTC) will now provide hot section inspections for all PW500 family engines that power the Embraer Phenom 300, Cessna Citation Bravo, Excel, Encore and XLS series aircraft.

“All related tooling and training, along with full ANAC approval, is now in place, and we have our first hot sections scheduled for early Q2 2021,” reveals Wellington Amorim, general manager of the Dallas Airmotive RTC. “Significant effort has been in place for a number of months as our team prepared to offer this enhanced layer of regionally based support.”

The facility will also be able to service operators who participate in the Pratt & Whitney Canada Eagle Service Plan.

“Since 2009 the Brazil RTC has continued to expand its portfolio of engine and APU support,” adds Jeff Turner, Dallas Airmotive VP of sales and service. “With the growth of PW500 powered aircraft in the region, adding PW500 hot section inspection capability was a natural extension of the multiple engine services our Brazil RTC provides customers each and every day.”

The Brazil RTC is ANAC-approved to provide maintenance for Pratt & Whitney's PT6A, PW500 and JT15D engines and Honeywell's TFE731 MSP and non-MSP engines. The RTC also provides line maintenance for Honeywell HTF7000s and 36 series APU.
