Vector Aerospace is an Approved Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Centre (AMROC) for Rolls-Royce M250 engines and an active participant in the Rolls-Royce Authorized Maintenance Center (AMC) council. Its M250 shop was established over thirty years ago. During the early 1980s, Vector Aerospace’s M250 capabilities underwent some intense development to reduce vibration and power deterioration, allowing for a more efficient and reliable engine. Over this period Vector has worked with Rolls-Royce to support the US Army Kiowa Warrior Program, the US Border and Protection Service, and the Rolls-Royce CLS (C30R3) program.
