Vector Aerospace, a global independent provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, has recently completed its first Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW305A engine test at its Fleetlands facility in Gosport, Hants, UK.

The announcement highlights Vector’s continuous growth in the business and general aviation engine support market. Commenting on the milestone of the first PW305A pass-off test, Simon Jones, Vice President - Business Development at Vector Aerospace, commented: “This recent capability introduction, along with the addition of PW305 and PW306 variants to our existing P&WC Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) authorization for the PW300 family, enables Vector Aerospace to provide operators with comprehensive support for this hugely popular series of engines. We are now pleased to offer total support, including global Mobile Repair Team (MRT) coverage, for the PW305A/B, PW306A/C, PW307A and the PW308A/C.”  


Jones continued, “With our global network covering six continents, we have the ability to react swiftly to our customers’ requirements, minimizing aircraft downtime thanks to our fast MRO turnaround times and large inventory of rental engine assets. The entire PW300 series has proved to be a highly reliable powerplant, and Vector is honored to be associated with it.” 

Vector’s long-running relationship with Pratt & Whitney Canada also includes full support for the PT6A turboprop family, as an authorized Distributor and Designated Overhaul Facility (DDOF), and comprehensive support of the JT15D, PT6T, PW100 and PW150A powerplants as a P&WC Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF).
