Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC), a United Technologies company, and Malaysian aerospace firm Airod signed an agreement on 27 March to support the P&WC PT6A-25C engines that power the Royal Malaysian Air Force’s (RMAF’s) fleet of Pilatus PC-7 Mk II trainer aircraft.

Under the memorandum of understanding (MOU), which was signed at the 2019 LIMA exhibition in Langkawi, the two companies will collaborate on providing “performance-based support and maintenance” for the engine.

Officials confirmed to Jane’s that while Airod has previously offered maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) support for the engines, the new agreement covers additional engines and includes options for ‘pay per hour’ for MRO and logistics support.
