Vortex Aviation has inducted its first Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan (GTF) PW1130G-JM engine at its new Davie, Florida, US facility.

    The induction of the PW1000G series engine adds to the capabilities of the Vortex facility, which include CFM LEAP 1A/1B, CFM56, IAE V2500 and other commercial jet engines.

    Vortex Aviation, a global on-wing and quick-turn turbine engine repair organisation, relocated to its new 45,000sq ft engine maintenance facility in late 2020.

    The company said it would continue to provide full-service support to operators, owners and lessors “with the same responsive and cost-effective standards for which it has been known for within the industry”.

    Vortex Aviation’s managing director/accountable manager Timothy Forbes said: “We are excited to reach this new milestone inducting our first GTF PW1000G engine series at our new Davie facility.

    “The increased capacity at the new engine shop has broadened our customer activity and scope of work to provide strategic support for the next generation of engine models, allowing us to achieve new business and remain a well-established and recognised leader in engine field services support.”
