MTU Maintenance reaches 4,000 CF6 shop visits milestone

MTU Maintenance, global market leader in customized solutions for aero engines, celebrates the delivery of its 4,000th CF6 engine, a CF6-80C2 from customer Air Transport International, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Air Transport Services Group, Inc. The shop visit was performed by MTU Maintenance’s North American branch in Vancouver.

MTU Maintenance has been supporting the CF6 since four decades, starting with CF6-50 in 1982. The CF6-80C2 version was introduced in its portfolio in 1989 and counts for more than half of shop visits performed thus far. While MTU stopped serving the CF6-50 in 2020, the company remains committed to the CF6-80C2 as MTU also provides MRO services for the military variant of the engine, the F138. Its long-term experience and its ability to serve both commercial and military customers makes MTU Maintenance a reliable MRO provider for this engine, also in the long-term. For Air Transport International, the company has already performed more than 40 shop visits since 2019.

“We are glad to celebrate this milestone with Air Transport International as the customer’s growing fleet allows us to further ramp-up our CF6-80C2 volume in the years to come,” says Michael Schreyögg, Chief Program Officer, MTU Aero Engines. “We are engine experts and dedicated to achieving maximum performance and optimal engine life for our customer’s engines. We thank all our customers for their trust in us in during the last 40 years. Without them, we would not have been able to reach such a milestone.”

“MTU has done a tremendous job supporting our CF6 engine maintenance program,” said Jim O’Grady, president of Air Transport International. “ATI provides the highest levels of service and expertise to our customers around the globe, so we demand the same commitment from our suppliers as well.”
