Pratt & Whitney Builds Apprentice Training Program In China

Shanghai Engine Center Partners With Shanghai Civil Aviation College

An agreement for a joint venture has been signed between Pratt & Whitney global service partners Shanghai Engine Center ... known as Shanghai Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Engine Maintenance Company Limited ("SEC"), a joint venture with China Eastern Airlines ... and Shanghai Civil Aviation College (SCAC) to collaborate on apprenticeships and advance license training programs.

"The training collaboration between SEC and SCAC is the first training collaboration between a MRO facility and an academic institution in China," said Mike Eller, SEC general manager. "We're confident this collaboration will help strengthen our apprenticeship program and increase our presence as a leading MRO provider in China by attracting top talent from throughout the region."

SEC is a state-of-the art facility with extensive part repair capacity that helps reduce engine overhaul costs and turnaround times. Pratt & Whitney, together with joint venture partner China Eastern Airlines, opened the high-technology and environmentally efficient facility in 2009. It is Pratt & Whitney's first engine center in China and is part of the company's Global Service Partners network providing engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services to customers worldwide. The approximately 23,000-square-meter (250,000-square-foot) facility meets the Platinum standards of the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.

Pratt & Whitney Global Service Partners is a total service provider for engines made by Pratt & Whitney, International Aero Engines, General Electric, Rolls-Royce and CFMI. Pratt & Whitney is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines, space propulsion systems and industrial gas turbines.
