CTS Engines inducts first PW2000 engine

CTS Engines, which provides mature engine maintenance, has inducted the first PW2000 engine into its engine overhaul facility in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Along with the CF6-80C2, CF6-80A, and CF6-50C2, the PW2000 represents the fourth engine model type serviced by CTS.

“The profile of the PW2000 engine—which will continue to operate on B757s in cargo configuration and on C-17 Globemaster military transport aircraft for years to come—is an ideal fit for the CTS product line,” said Vesa Paukkeri, CTS’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “CTS is the go-to independent jet engine MRO for sunset engines operating in cargo and military transport configurations. We look forward to servicing this engine through the remainder of its time on wing over the next 30+ years.”

Based in Ft. Lauderdale, CTS Engines performs engine overhauls on the CF6-50, CF6-80A, CF6-80C, and PW2000 engine models at its 105,000 square foot Ft. Lauderdale MRO facilities. At its 155,000 lbf test stand in Jupiter, Fla., the company also performs mature engine return to service tests, as well as OEM developmental tests for new engine platforms.
