Vector Aerospace has completed its first full engine test on the Pratt & Whitney's PT6A-140 turboprop in South Africa.

The company completed the test at its facility at Lanseria International Airport.
 
The PT6A-140 is used on the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan EX, and is offered as an upgrade for earlier models in the 208 Caravan family.
 
"We consider the successful completion of this engine test to be a major milestone and achievement for our South African facility. We want operators of PT6A-140 powered Cessna 208 Caravans to know that we are more than ready to perform complete overhauls on their engines,” said Jeff Poirier, president, Vector Engine Services, Atlantic.
 
Operators in Africa can benefit from the facility’s full hot section exchange kits, fuel nozzles and complete line of accessories, and its Mobile Repair Team.
