Pratt & Whitney develops digitally curated maintenance solutions for general aviation

Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corporation based in East Hartford, Connecticut, has launched a new data-rich mobile application for the PT6 turboprop aircraft engine developed by Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. The “Know My PT6” app is a digital gateway to maintenance recommendations and to the services and facilities that P&W offers through its global customer service network for engine maintainers, owners, operators and pilots. It is designed to help PT6 customers and operators optimize the performance and availability of their PT6-powered aircraft.

Users can select their aircraft model and manufacturer to receive curated engine maintenance information, including Know Your PT6 content previously available in printed booklets, excerpts from relevant Service Information Letters, access to the P&W customer portal, direct access to P&W’s Customer First Centre, and an interactive world map to quickly identify and reach authorized service centers and parts distributors.
