CTS commences KC-10 engine maintenance program



CTS Engines, LLC, the global leader for mature jet engine maintenance, has announced that it had completed the United States Air Force´s Depot Readiness Review for the USAF´s KC-10 engine program, the company said.

With this completion, CTS can immediately commence providing MRO services on the CF6-50C2 engine fleet powering the US Air Force´s KC-10 Extender tanker aircraft under the previously awarded KC-10 engine maintenance contract. The nine-year, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract was awarded in 2017 to CTS and its partner, Lockheed Martin Commercial Engine Services, Inc.

The KC-10 contract represents the latest in a series of long-term engine overhaul contracts awarded to CTS over the past 12 months. The company´s twin commitments to quality and customer value have not only been recognized globally by major OEMs, but also have propelled it to multiple contract wins over other affiliated and independent MROs.

CTS Engines, located next to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida, is an FAA and EASA Part 145 Repair Station and recognized world leader of mature aircraft engine maintenance. The company provides maintenance, repair, overhaul, and testing services to commercial and military operators worldwide. CTS´s dedication and commitment to quality continues to be recognized throughout the international aviation community.
