GLOBAL MRO SERVICE PROVIDER OBTAINS NEW CERTIFICATION FROM CHINA FOR THE PT6A.

Certification expansion from China signals growth in excellence.

Dallas, Texas (April 30, 2013) - Prime Turbines, a maintenance, repair and overhaul facility specializing in PT6A engines, is pleased to announce that it has received certification from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to perform overhaul and repair of Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A engines on Chinese civil aircraft. This approval followed an in-depth audit and inspection of the Prime Turbine's 69,000 square foot facility located in Carrollton, Texas. This achievement is part of a compilation of certifications including FAA, EASA, Malaysia, Indonesia, and South Africa.

According to the RAND Aerospace Report, "China has become one of the world's fastest growing markets for civil aviation. Trailing only the United States, China is the second largest air travel market." And, Prime Turbines hopes to find itself on the forefront of its repair and overhaul options. "Prime Turbines is very excited to increase its presence in China", said Russell Starr, Killick's President and CEO. "With this endorsement, we can offer our Chinese customers cost effective PT6A overhaul and repair solutions as well as full performance engine testing capabilities." This is a welcomed strategic move as China is becoming known for its rapid economic development and increasing presence in the aerospace industry.

Currently, Prime Turbines has 22 certifications in six different countries including the US, Germany, Malaysia, and South Africa and is regarded as a leader in the PT6A MRO arena, with 30 years of expertise. Integral to their overhaul experience is the ability to offer high quality cost effective solutions for PMA, DER repairs, and serviceable overhaul parts.
