Vector Aerospace, a global independent provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, has successfully completed its first full engine test on the Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PT6A-140 turboprop at its facility in South Africa. The PT6A-140 powers the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan EX, and is also offered as an upgrade for earlier models of the 208 Caravan family. Vector’s South African facility, located at the Lanseria International Airport, was appointed a Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) for the PT6A-140 in July 2014. The location is also a P&WC Distributor and Designated Overhaul Facility (DDOF) for other models in the PT6A engine family, including the PT6A-114/114A variants used on previous versions of the Caravan.
