Dallas Airmotive's new test facility at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport has been certified to test Pratt & Whitney Canada PW200 engines and Rolls-Royce M250 and RR300 engines.
The company's first production RR300 engine has already finished testing and returned to a Brazilian customer last month, said parent company BBA Aviation Global Engine Services' chief commercial officer, Mark Stubbs.
Dallas Airmotive is the only P&WC Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) for the P&WC PW200 and PW210 engines in the Americas. With the new test facility certified and online, all rotorcraft operations for customers in the Americas will be centralized at Dallas Airmotive’s facilities in Dallas, Texas.
The company expects to open a maintenance, repair and overhaul facility later this year.
