A complete overhaul

  • 30-Jun-2008 07:41 EDT

Pratt & Whitney and Turkish Airlines Technic signed a joint-venture agreement to build an aircraft engine overhaul center in Istanbul, Turkey. The joint-venture facility, to be named Pratt & Whitney Turkish Technic Aircraft Engine Maintenance Center, will overhaul V2500 and CFM56 engines. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2008, with the first engine expected to be manufactured in 2009. Once fully operational, the center is expected to overhaul up to 200 engines per year and will employ much of Turkish Technic’s staff. In November, Turkish Technic signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Goodrich to establish a joint venture in Istanbul to perform maintenance and repair work on nacelles. Under the terms of the MOU, the joint-venture company, Goodrich HABOM, will provide maintenance, repair, and overhaul services and support for Turkish Airlines’ fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft. Goodrich HABOM plans to open a repair station at Sabiha Gokcen International Airport in Istanbul in 2009.
