A milestone has been passed by Aero-Dienst’s engine shop – it has completed more than 300 post-rental inspections (PRIs) of Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW300 rental engines in the past 12 years. The inspections are typically conducted after rental usage.
Aero-Dienst, based in Nuremberg, Germany, is a full-service provider for business aviation and air ambulances in Europe. Engine maintenance has been one the company’s core competencies for more than 50 years, and the business ties between Aero-Dienst and Pratt & Whitney have existed for just as long. Aero-Dienst was recognised by P&WC Customer Service Centre (CSC) Europe as a premium service provider in 1996.
Today, Aero-Dienst’s experienced and constantly evolving engine team specialises in the PW300 series and provides AOG and Mobile Repair Team (MRT) support.
“Aero-Dienst is a key part of our MRT and PRI network,” said Ismael Rhissa Zakary, general manager of P&WC CSC Europe. “We are delighted that Aero-Dienst achieved 300 PRIs. P&WC CSC Europe is committed to providing customers with an excellent service and Aero-Dienst shares our commitment.”
“In the decades of trustful and collaborative cooperation with P&WC CSC Europe, many successes have been achieved with both teams,” said Andrea Weyrich, manager of the maintenance engine shop at Aero-Dienst. “Three hundred PRIs are a conspicuous indicator of this. Our goal remains not only to maintain this excellent cooperation in the interests of aircraft operators, but also to further intensify it.”
