May 15, 2017

Ontic Engineering & Manufacturing, Inc. (Ontic), a BBA Aviation company and the aerospace industry's leading provider of 'Extended Life Solutions' for Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) legacy products, has acquired the manufacturing rights from Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) for additional JT1SD engine components.

This is Ontic's third acquisition from P&WC and will strengthen the company's portfolio of engine support capabilities. Ontic will manufacture and sell the additional components from its Chatsworth, CA facility and the parts will continue to be distributed through the JT1SD new parts distributor, Aviall Services Inc.

"Beginning with our first engagement with P&WC in 2015, we had the intent to expand Ontic's component offering for the JT1SD," stated Gareth Hall, President and Managing Director of Ontic. ''The JT1SD engine aligns with Ontic's commitment to support legacy products and this further acquisition is a logical progression and expansion of our current services to our OEM partners. We value our relationship with P&WC and are looking forward to continuing the partnership."

With more than 6,700 engines produced since the 1970s, the JT1SD is used on a wide range of business aircraft, including the Cessna Citation 11, Hawker 400A and Cessna Citation V. P&WC is an esteemed customer of the BBA Aviation family with Dallas Airmotive and H+S Aviation providing authorized maintenance, repair and overhaul support for many P&WC engines, including the JT1SD.
