Vector Aerospace certified by GE Aviation as Authorized Service Provider for T700 turboshaft engines


Vector Aerospace, March 07, 2017 - Dallas, TX – Vector Aerospace Corporation, a global independent provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, announced today its appointment by GE Aviation as an Authorized Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Provider for GE T700 Engines.

This approval extends Vector’s 18-year association with GE on the T700 family, which is supported from Vector’s Helicopter Services – North America facility in Richmond, BC, Canada.

This latest authorization adds to Vector’s existing GE license for repair and overhaul of the T700, as well as its U.S. Army and U.S. Navy source approvals for the engine. As such, foreign and domestic military operators can be assured that Vector is fully qualified to provide reliable, value-oriented depot maintenance, repair and overhaul support for their T700 engine fleets.

“We are proud to be the first GE T700 shop to be granted the next level of recognition as an Authorized Service Provider for GE T700 Engines,” said Paul Cockell, President of Vector Aerospace Helicopter Services – North America. “We look forward to providing our high level of expertise under this new certification to T700 customers across the globe.”

Vector Aerospace has been an overhaul facility for the GE T58 and CT58 engine family since 1976, and has been licensed to provide MRO services on the T700 and CT7 since 1999, supporting military, governmental and civilian operators across the globe. To date, GE has delivered over 20,000 T700/CT7 engines, with the global fleet logging in excess of 100 million flight hours.

Vector’s close relationship with GE Aviation extends to repair support of the T700/T6A1 turboshaft powering the Royal Canadian Air Force’s (RCAF) CH-149 Cormorant search and rescue (SAR) helicopter fleet, as well as assembly, inspection and test (AIT) of the CT7-8A7 engines powering the RCAF’s new Sikorsky CH-148 Cyclone shipborne maritime helicopters. Vector has been the sole repair and overhaul provider for the CH-149’s powerplant since its introduction, having now completed the first fleet-wide campaign of T700/T6A1 life limited part (LLP) replacements, as well as providing on-condition repairs for the engine.
