Pratt & Whitney Canada's fleet management program for GrandView Aviation is a flexible, engine maintenance solution that helps lower operating costs and simplify fleet operations management.
The agreement covers 26 PW535E engines on Embraer Phenom 300 aircraft.

GrandView Aviation has signed a fleet management program agreement with Pratt & Whitney Canada for its 26 PW535E engines powering Embraer Phenom 300 aircraft.

P&WC's fleet management program (FMP) is a flexible engine maintenance solution intended to lower operating costs and simplify fleet operations management. The FMP allows customers to focus on their core business and eliminate the overhead and logistical challenges of operating a maintenance facility.

“Fleet uptime is key to supporting our 24/7 missions that include private charters as well as life-saving organ transportation flights,” says Michael Ruth, director of maintenance, GrandView Aviation. “We are excited to continue our investment in Pratt & Whitney's highly reliable engines.”

“The FMP is tailored to GrandView's mission-specific engine maintenance needs,” adds Scott McElvaine, vice president, customer programmes, Pratt & Whitney Canada. “As such, it will help the company maximise the value of its engine assets and increase time on wing performance. Our FMP programme provides customers with a competitive advantage, while helping them save money.”
