Vortex Aviation, the global on-wing and quick-turn turbine engine repair organization has reported the induction of the first Pratt and Whitney Geared Turbo Fan (GTF) PW1130G-JM engine at its new Davie, Florida U.S. facility. The induction of the GTF PW1000G series engine adds to the capabilities of the Vortex facility including CFM LEAP 1A/1B, CFM56, IAE V2500 and other commercial jet engines.
Vortex relocated to the new 45,000 ft² state-of-the art engine maintenance facility in the fall of 2020. As a result of this expansion, Vortex Aviation is now able to maximize its capacity to support the entire next-generation of narrow-body fleets of A320 NEOs and 737 MAXs, plus regional fleets such as the A220, E190, and E2/E195-E2 powered by GTFs while continuing to support the older generation of turbine engines.
Vortex maintains its long-running certification approvals as a licensed quick-turn engine service and repair shop to support major OEM engine models such the CFM, GE, Roll Royce, IAG, and PW. Vortex will continue to provide full-service support to operators, owners, and lessors with the same responsive and cost-effective standards for which it has been known for within the industry.
