Pratt & Whitney Engine Services in Bridgeport, WV has supported the needs of P&WC engine operators for over 35 years. In recognition of PWES’ quality of service it has been designated, by Pratt & Whitney Canada as the “Center of Excellence” for corporate turbofan and turboprop engines.
PWES’ senior management anticipates that the fan engine growth will carry the facility through the 21st century.
PWES’ strength is built around its people, their highest quality standards and their obsession of delighting customers. Highly technical processes are performed at PWES such as assembling a compressor for a JT15D.
Understanding the responsibility of being an authorized Pratt & Whitney service center creates a work environment that focuses on technical excellence. Engine testing of a JT15D-5A turbo fan within PWES’ modern fan test cell ensures installed performance margins.
Customer deadlines and teamwork allow for PWES to make quick turn-time response for aircraft operators. On-wing inspections to engine removals are daily services performed with easy access to the Harrison Marion Regional Airport runway.
Specialized repair capabilities such as intermediate case corrosion repair and compressor stator vane replacement processes are an integral part of the expanding Component Repair Business within PWES. The multi-axis milling machine is one of many cost saving manufacturing objectives to maximize value to the operator.

The human element comes into place every day with engineering support of the engine lines. “We are continuously reviewing and improving the engine repair process,” explained Karol Martinson, Quality & Engineering Manager. Customers expect Pratt & Whitney to be world class with expertise in modern gas turbine technology and PWES fills this role completely with a top-notch engineering staff.
PWES continues its commitment to the turboprop operator and has reduced it turnaround time to a 29 day average. The challenges of the business brought PWES to extend staffing and redefine the line concept. By expanding its hangar to accommodate more aircraft the corporate operator has more options for fly-in service. A new quick turnaround heavy maintenance line is incorporated within the hangar to provide low cost repair and faster service.
