Pacific Propeller International, LLC Adds to MRO Capability
C-130 Hercules Brake System Repair and Overhaul
As the global leader in C-130 propulsion MRO, Pacific Propeller International (PPI) now offers
operators expanded value added services with Hercules brake system repair and overhaul.
Kent WA – March 1, 2020 With nearly six decades of experience working with the venerable Lockheed C-130 Hercules airframe, PPI is expanding its capabilities to include repair and overhaul services to the Hercules braking system from its 64,000 square foot facility in Washington state.
This MRO expansion creates immediate value to existing PPI customers by simplifying the need to source multiple vendors. PPI’s vast experience and renowned technical knowledge of the C-130 airframe offers immediate confidence and trust for operators in need of brake repair and overhaul.
Jeff Otterstetter, PPI’s Director of Business Development, sees this new direction for PPI as something C-130 operators will immediately find of value; both with time savings to fleet operations and improved readiness, but also a more efficient process in dealing with a single known MRO expert for multiple Hercules systems. “PPI is rapidly taking its strong aviation maintenance service history and expanding to provide our valued C-130 customers with more repair operations to keep their C-130 aircraft in service,” he says.
Buddy Tobin, PPI’s Vice President Sales, saw a need in the C-130 community for more MRO capacity. “PPI approached this expansion with vigor and safety in the forefront of our minds. Our global business team consistently seeks out challenges to the C-130 market, and brakes were one of those operator challenges we have tackled. Operators demand quality, safety, and quick turnaround when selecting service providers for their equipment. PPI provides that and more.”
Since 1946, military and commercial operators around the world have relied on Pacific Propeller and its sister company, PPI Technical Services, as the leading provider of C-130 propulsion knowledge, repair and overhaul. Now these customers can trust PPI for the same level of quality, workmanship and rapid turnaround times for their aircrafts’ braking systems.
