Vector Aerospace is consolidating its Rolls-Royce repair facility for engines with its Pratt & Whitney Canada engine repair station in Southlake, Texas to create a combined engine repair operation.

Vector offers repair services for 250 Rolls-Royce models as well as the PT6A, JT15D and PW100 engines from Pratt & Whitney.

Company senior vice-president of sales John MacDougall said that by combining the expertise and technical resources of these two operations, Vector is well-positioned to develop process efficiencies offering operators enhanced benefits including decreased turn-times and improved accessibility to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to aid in shipping and receiving process.

The transition for the Southlake repair station is not expected to interrupt either the Rolls-Royce or Pratt & Whitney engine lines.

The transition will take place between 1 September 2009 and 1 October 2009.
