Pratt & Whitney Canada announced that business jet charter company GrandView Aviation has signed a Fleet Management Program  for its fleet of 26 PW535E engines powering Embraer Phenom 300 aircraft.

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

P&WC’s FMP is a flexible, high value engine maintenance solution that helps lock in lower operating costs and simplifies fleet operations management. Tailored to suit the unique requirements of fleet operators and airlines, the FMP allows customers to focus on their core business and eliminates the overhead and logistical challenges of operating a maintenance facility. Under this program, a skilled Pratt & Whitney-appointed team manages fleet operations delivering maximum return on investment, customer satisfaction and peace of mind.

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

“For a company like GrandView Aviation, dispatch availability is a key driver of customer satisfaction,” said McElvaine. “With the planned maintenance environment that the FMP provides, the emphasis is on ensuring aircraft are ready to fly whenever, wherever they are needed.”
