Experience

We are one of the most if not THE most experienced PT6 shop in the country.  The Pratt and Whitney PT6 engine has been our only focus since our inception in 1981.  The guys working in the shop have been here an average of 18 years each.  We have very little turnover.   The men in the shop have 313 combined years of experience.  Also the owner, Jim Mills, has over 50 years of experience.  And we are bringing in young mechanics to follow in the footsteps of some of the most experienced mechanics in the industry.

Do you have a -20 that needs to be overhauled or repaired?  We are one of the few remaining shops that have the knowledge to accomplish this.

Our troubleshooting capabilities are second to none.  If you have problems or questions about the operation of a PT6, let us help you.
