Dallas Airmotive’s State-of-the-Art Test Facility is Ready for Rotorcraft Engines

New facility receives OEM certification for P&WC PW200 series engines and Rolls-Royce M250 and RR300 engine lines; completes test on first production engine

 

DALLAS -- Dallas Airmotive, a BBA Aviation Global Engine Services company, announced today that its new test facility at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport has been correlated for Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW200 series engines and Rolls-Royce M250 and RR300 engine lines. It is certified and has begun to test rotorcraft engines.

“This is a great milestone for our new test center at the DFW Airport and our rotorcraft program,” said Mark Stubbs, BBA Aviation Global Engine Services Chief Commercial Officer. “With these certifications, we can deliver full MRO and test capabilities from our Dallas facilities to our growing base of rotorcraft customers throughout the Americas. This state-of-the-art facility is one of a kind and our rotorcraft customers will experience quicker engine shop visits.”

In fact, Stubbs continued, the first production engine has already finished testing. “Our first production engine, an RR300, completed testing on June 29 and has already been shipped back to the customer in Brazil,” he said. “Our test cell team has done a tremendous job of bringing this facility online and focusing on customer care and rapid turnaround times.”

Dallas Airmotive is the only P&WC Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) for the P&WC PW200 and PW210 engines in the Americas. The company’s full line of rotorcraft authorizations include P&WC PW200, PW210, PT6T engines and Rolls-Royce M250 and RR300 engines. With the new test facility certified and online, all rotorcraft operations for customers in the Americas will be centralized at Dallas Airmotive’s facilities in Dallas, Texas.

In addition to the 30,000 square foot, six-cell test facility, Dallas Airmotive’s DFW Center location also features a newly constructed 220,000 square foot maintenance, repair and overhaul facility, which will be opening later this year
