Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) Aviation Group has signed a long-term contract under which it will maintain and service Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines for Air Transport Services Group’s (ATSG) leasing company, Cargo Aircraft Management (CAM).

The PW4000 engine maintenance will be carried out at IAI’s Bedek MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) Division’s facilities.

Ido Ben Cnaan, vice president & general manager, Bedek MRO, Aviation Group, said: “For the last 70 years, Bedek MRO has been considered a world leader in the MRO sector, with extensive experience in the fields of maintenance, repair, and overhaul, for a variety of aircraft and engines – including the PW4000.

“We are proud of the confidence and long-standing cooperation with ATSG being strengthened with the signing of the current contract. IAI welcomes this long-term contract and expects to deepen the business connections both between our companies, and with the American market.”

The PW4000 engines are used on aircraft including Airbus A300-600, Airbus A310-300, Boeing 747-400, and Boeing 767-200/-300/-400 (Including ER Version and Boeing Converted Freighter version except -300F).

IAI’s Bedek MRO facilities serve aviation companies and commercial operators around the world and supplies, under one roof, the entire range of MRO capabilities, for aircraft, engines, and subsystems. IAI supports both the widebody and narrowbody aircraft produced by Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin, and others, and provides maintenance services at all levels, including the most extensive D-check maintenance activities.

ATSG has a long-standing relationship with IAI as they have converted more than 150 Boeing 767 aircraft.
