Our Company History
Prime Turbines was established in 1984 in Hyannis, Massachusetts to serve the maintenance and repair needs of Pratt & Whitney Canada
PT6A owners and operators by providing high-quality affordable services.
From those early beginnings on Cape Cod, the company established a loyal customer base and an industry reputation for workmanship
and customer service.
In 2008, Prime Turbines was acquired by Killick Capital and the MRO operations of Avatas Engine Support Services in Dallas, Texas were merged under the Prime Turbines name.
Since the merger, Prime Turbines has expanded by adding a Regional Turbine Center (RTC) near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to service PT6A engines as well as an RTC near Frankfurt, Germany to service P&WC PW100 engines operating across Europe, Asia, and Africa.
In 2013, Prime Turbines opened a new, independent PT6A Engine Repair Shop focused on the Agricultural Aviation market
in the city of Wynne, Arkansas, in the heart of the Arkansas-Mississippi agricultural delta region.
In 2014, Prime Turbines opened an MRO facility in the Phoenix suburb of Mesa, Arizona to provide maintenance, repair, and overhaul services
for the PT6A, PT6T, T53, and components for Bell Drivetrain.
VSE Corporation completed an acquisition of four business units from Killick Aerospace Group in January 2015, including Prime Turbines, to form
VSE Aviation, Inc.
The acquisition expands VSE's Supply Chain Management & MRO capabilities to commercial aviation markets.
For nearly three decades Prime Turbines has been honored to serve the needs of owners and operators of Pratt & Whitney Canada powered aircraft.
We look forward every day to providing value-added services to our customers across the globe.
