Delta TechOps and Pratt & Whitney have unveiled a new, larger TechOps engine overhaul facility dedicated to the global Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engine MRO network.
The 155,000-ft² facility in Atlanta will house disassembly, assembly and test capability for engines powering Airbus A220 and A320neo-family aircraft. Leadership from Delta and Pratt & Whitney were in attendance alongside Commissioner Pat Wilson from the Georgia Department of Economic Development, media and employees.
With more than 10,000 engine orders and commitments from more than 90 customers, GTF engines now power more than 1,400 aircraft with 64 operators across three aircraft families. To keep pace with the growing fleet, the GTF MRO network continues to expand around the globe.
Delta’s larger facility will allow the shop to overhaul more than 300 GTF engines per year. A member of the GTF MRO network since 2019, Delta TechOps inducted its first PW1100G-JM engine in 2020 and its first PW1500G engine earlier this year at the end of January within the new facility.
