Gloucester UK – 11 October 2019 – Dowty Propellers today announced an agreement establishing Pacific Propeller International (PPI) as a Dowty authorized repair and overhaul facility for Dowty’s metal-bladed propellers installed on the CASA 212 (R334), Jetstream 31(R333), Merlin (R324) and Metro/Merlin aircraft (R321).
Under the terms of this agreement, Dowty Propellers will provide training, technical data, equipment and support to assist in establishing new repair and overhaul capability. Additionally, Dowty Propellers will provide ongoing engineering and technical assistance, as well as perform specialized repair processes to support PPI’s ongoing maintenance operations.
“PPI’s repair and overhaul expertise ensures high-quality OEM-backed maintenance services to customers operating and maintaining Dowty Propellers’ metal propellers,” stated Henry Johnston, the Services Executive for Dowty Propellers. “This will enable Dowty Propellers’ own repair and overhaul facilities to focus their efforts and know-how on our composite blade propellers. PPI has been repairing metal blade propellers for decades, and we are confident its expertise in servicing and supporting operators with these propeller types will be of great benefit to customers.”
Tim Gellerson, the President of PPI’s Aerospace Group, added: “I thank Dowty Propellers for this opportunity. We look forward to a great partnership and maintaining the excellent customer service that both of our companies currently provide.”
