Pratt & Whitney announced it has signed an agreement with SITA to enhance engine health management services offered to Pratt & Whitney powered aircraft, growing Pratt & Whitney’s full-flight data capabilities for SITA’s global customers.
“Engine maintenance exists for the full life of an engine,” said Joe Sylvestro, senior vice president of Aftermarket & Sustainment Operations at Pratt & Whitney. “Once an engine is produced, it then relies on Pratt & Whitney and our technicians to maintain, repair and overhaul it whenever needed. Working with data delivery solution providers like SITA, our capability of collecting full-flight data is expanded to a larger aircraft population. More customers are able to benefit from our engineers’ and technicians’ expertise and data-driven insights leading to proactive, preventative maintenance.”
As the OEM, Pratt & Whitney is committed to driving maximum engine reliability and performance through its EngineWise® solutions. Working with SITA and its e-Aircraft® DataHub platform, Pratt & Whitney has expanded customers’ access to data.
Yann Cabaret, CEO, SITA FOR AIRCRAFT, said: “e-Aircraft® DataHub is a multi-fleet and hardware-free solution, allowing Pratt & Whitney to retrieve data from virtually any aircraft and any airline around the world, while these airlines remain in full control of their data. Through SITA’s unique data-brokering platform, Pratt & Whitney and airlines can collaborate effectively to gain invaluable, data-driven insights to improve their services across the board.”
This agreement between Pratt & Whitney and SITA is about meeting customers’ evolving needs and enhancing service to keep their operations running smoothly. Leveraging full flight data, Pratt & Whitney EngineWise Insights+ provides predictive maintenance recommendations that optimise performance, mitigate fleet disruptions, reduce customers’ operating costs and maximise time in the air.
