Boca Raton, Florida-based Precision Turbines has achieved its first supplemental type certificate for Citation II operators, which allows the company to replace Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D-4 engines with JT15D-4B engines without time limits.

These new engines can be run at hotter temperatures and are more efficient for operators, says Robert Spahr, president and founder of Precision Turbines.

"This STC significantly expands the pool of replacement engines for Citation II operators and gives them more options in managing their engines at every stage of the lifecycle," says Spahr.

Precision Turbines has also extended its contractor logistics support agreement with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) for Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-27 engines on its fleet of de Havilland Canada DHC-6 aircraft.
