In early December, Pratt & Whitney Canada announced that they would be upping the TBO, or Time Between Overhaul, and HSI, also known as Hot Section Inspection. This change means that PT6A-140, 140A and 140AG engines that are currently in service or that will be bought sometime in the future will not need to be inspected as often as they once did.
The time between overhauls got increased from 3,600 hours to every 4,000 hours. The hot section inspection was increased from 1,800 hours to 2,000 hours. This boost means more time in the air and less money spent on maintenance on these specific engines. The boost in performance is made possible by the PT6A engines themselves. They have proven year after year that they can handle whatever the market throws at them.
The engines have been around for more than fifty years and have gone through over seventy changes and seen the inside of roughly hundred and twenty-eight aircrafts. The newest addition to the PT6A family is the PT6A-140 collection. This engine series hit the market in 2012 and has really ramped up the competition among engine makers. When compared with similar models and price points, the PT6A-140 offers exceptional fuel efficiency and is a crowd favorite. Pratt & Whitney Canada have a collective airtime of 820 million hours, and that number only seems to be growing. They work with over two-hundred countries and have seen their products span the globe hundreds of thousands of times.

Boeing has accused Bombardier of benefitting from government subsidies, allowing the Canadian airplane manufacturer to sell its new C-Series planes to US buyers at below cost. Boeing claims that in 2016, Delta Air Lines bought 75 C-Series jets from Bombardier for $20 million each, discounting $13 million from the list price. Neither Bombardier or Delta have confirmed the claim. According to Boeing, sales of their new 737 have been negatively affected.
The complaint was taken as a hearing at the International Trade Commission (ITC) on Tuesday, December 19. Evidence given showed that Bombardier had been taking illegal subsidies to try to flood the US market with cheaper than production C-series planes; however, there was no evidence supporting Boeing’s claim of this hurting the sales of the 737, which is backlogged of more than 4300 aircraft orders. Based only on the Delta order of Bombardier jets, the case has yet to have any basis on imports.
This is a milestone in the ITC as it is the largest case by far it has ever heard.The US Commerce Department has already ruled in Boeing’s favor, passing a 220% tariff on the Bombardier jets. Initially, Boeing only sought a 79% tariff, which reflects the duties against Chinese state-owned enterprises. If the ITC finds that Boeing has not suffered the damages that it claims, then the anti-subsidy duties against Bombardier can effectively be thrown out.
Airbus, a European manufacturer with a plant in Alabama, recently purchased Bombardier’s C-Series program for $1. Production of the C-Series in America may bypass the tariff altogether. However, the domestic production also will create 400-500 direct jobs in the United States and approximately $300 million in new foreign direct investment, as estimated by Bombardier.

Bell Helicopter has recently been able to conclude a deal with African offshore support company, Caverton Offshore Support Group Plc.Caverton has purchased brand new 8 407GXP helicopters to expand their fleet rescue team. Along with the newly purchased aircraft, there will be included a customer advantage plan (CAP) support solutions that Bell has to offer.
Caverton is a large support service that specializes in maritime and coastal surveillance. The Nigerian company specializes in the gas and oil divisions for the marine/aviation sectors. Caverton is a great asset to Nigeria as it is able to provide over 700 jobs to hard-working employees.
Director of Bell Helicopter in the Africa and Middle East division, David Sale, can assure that with this purchase it is only increasing their reputation of being a good renown aircraft manufacturer. Sale stated,” “With nearly 1,400 Bell 407s in operation around the world, the aircraft continues to be a success in global markets with sales steadily growing in Africa.”
Caverton has established a flight facility located at Murtala Muhammad International airport in Lagos, Nigeria. This flight facility has a size of 10,000 ft2 meters big along with other facilities across Nigeria.
The Bell 407GXP is an enhanced version of previous Bell 407 model. The Bell 407 is an additional 50 pounds more of “payload capability.” The GXP has been enhanced with a new M250 Rolls Royce engine. The Top of the Line Rolls Royce engine allows for further fuel efficiency and high performance. Many new innovations have been integrated to increase mobility and add features such as hover performance. Keeping maintenance costs low is one of the Bells main concerns for their customers which is why they implement a transmission TBO extension to maintain and further the aircraft longevity.
