Vector Aerospace has announced it has signed a contract with the Department of National Defense (DND) to perform all MRO services for their T-58 engines, effective July 30.
“We are thrilled to have been re-selected by DND to be their sole T-58 engine MRO provider,” said Paul Cockell, President, Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services – North America. “We have been a proud supporter of DND for over twenty consecutive years, consistently providing top quality products on time and on budget.”
Vector Aerospace has been a registered overhaul facility for CT-58 and T-58 engines since 1976. Between 1996 and 2003, Vector was instrumental in developing and implementing an upgrade program for 109 DND T-58 engine conversions from the -8F to -100 configurations. Vector also repairs the T700-T6A1 engines for the AW CH-149 Cormorant (AW101) and is currently conducting Assemble Inspection and Test (AIT) for the CT7-8A7 engines for the new Sikorsky CH-148 (H92) Cyclone helicopters in Canada.
