Prime Turbines Wins Overhaul Contract with El Colono for Eight PT6A Engines

The El Colono engines will be overhauled at Prime Turbines’ Carrollton, Texas, MRO facility. Each engine to be overhauled will be supported by a Prime Turbines rental engine to ensure no downtime for the aircraft while overhauls are completed. The eight engine MRO contract represents a value of approximately $2.2 million over a period of 18 months.

“We have been supporting El Colono for the past six years with engine overhauls, hot section inspections, parts sales and technical assistance,” commented Paul Goffredi, VSE Aviation President and COO. “This new overhaul contract will increase our existing level of effort and is a great vote of confidence and trust in our technicians, services, response time and quality. We appreciate El Colono’s faith in us.”
