With more than 10,000 engines already enrolled in its pay-per-hour maintenance plans, Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) is once again raising the bar with the introduction of a leading-edge Eagle Service Plan™ (ESP) maintenance program tailored to PT6A customers, as well as a major enhancement to its current ESP plan offering. Each maintenance plan optimizes aircraft availability and performance while protecting and enhancing the value of the aircraft investment. P&WC is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.

The ESP plan is a simple, cost-effective pay-per-hour engine coverage program that provides long-term costs and ensures a planned and preventative approach to maintenance. Being launched are: ESPecially for Your PT6 engine, which provides the first 400 hours of coverage for free to customers of new PT6A engine-powered aircraft; and an enhancement to P&WC's current ESP plan offering, which enables customers to apply their ESP plan investment toward a new engine of the same model or a new engine conversion at time of overhaul.

"We continue to push ourselves to think outside of the box - about how we best serve our customers as well as deliver the greatest value and return on investment," said Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam, Vice President of Commercial Services. "We've proven the bottom-line value of the ESP plan to thousands of customers as a unique solution that delivers a planned approach to OEM-backed engine maintenance. And we continue to innovate our maintenance coverage options with the launch of new and enhanced programs. Today's announcement is a testament to the program's ongoing evolution in delivering comprehensive pay-per-hour coverage."

ESPecially for Your PT6 engine plan: First 400-hours of coverage at no cost

This past July, P&WC introduced the ESPecially for Your PT6 engine plan to aircraft OEMs as a way to support new aircraft sales and deliver optimal value to customers of new PT6A engine-powered aircraft. The plan includes P&WC's world class ESP program with the first 400 hours of engine coverage at no cost to customers, representing a value of up to $50,000 per engine toward future maintenance. Additionally, after the first 400 hours of no-cost coverage customers will receive a reduced ESP plan rate until their first overhaul.
