FARNBOROUGH AIRSHOW, WEAF Booth (Hall 1-B80)— Ontic, a BBA Aviation company and the aerospace industry’s leading provider of ‘Extended Life Solutions’ for OEM legacy products, has increased the amount of acquired manufacturing rights from Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. (P&WC) for certain new JT15D engine components.

Ontic’s second acquisition from P&WC significantly increases the level of JT15D content Ontic is responsible for, further adding to its portfolio of engine support capabilities, which includes the RR Dart and Honeywell 700 series APUs. Ontic will manufacture and sell the additional new JT15D components from its Chatsworth, CA facility and the parts will continue to be distributed through JT15D new parts distributor, Aviall Services, Inc.

"Ontic’s engineering, manufacturing and supply chain capabilities are uniquely suited to support the special requirements associated with legacy products such as the JT15D engine," stated Gareth Hall, President and Managing Director of Ontic. "Legacy engine support continues the growth of services we provide our OEM partners. We are pleased to expand upon and continue our relationship with P&WC."

With more than 6,500 engines produced since the 1970s, the JT15D is used on a wide range of business aircraft, including the Cessna Citation II, Hawker 400A and Cessna Citation V. P&WC is an esteemed customer to the BBA Aviation family, with Dallas Airmotive and H+S Aviation providing authorized maintenance, repair and overhaul support for many P&WC engines, including the JT15D.
