"The profile of the PW2000 engine—which will continue to operate on
B757s in cargo configuration and on C-17 Globemaster military transport
aircraft for years to come—is an ideal fit for the CTS product line,"
said Vesa Paukkeri, CTS's President and Chief Operating Officer. "CTS is
the go-to independent jet engine MRO for sunset engines operating in
cargo and military transport configurations. We look forward to
servicing this engine through the remainder of its time on wing over the
next 30+ years."
