Vector Aerospace has announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Field Air to provide Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PT6A engine services. Field Air, headquartered in Ballarat, Victoria, is the primary Air Tractor dealership for Asia Pacific and one of Australia’s leading aerial application businesses.

Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, Vector will provide comprehensive engine MRO services in support of Field Air’s fleet of five Air Tractors. In addition, Vector will provide comprehensive MRO services to Field Air for all engines provided by its customers.

“We appreciate the excellent service levels, support and flexibility provided by everyone at the Vector Brisbane facility,” says Peter Mackay, Managing Director at Field Air Group of Companies. “We look forward to the continuation of this valued working relationship.”

“The signing of this exclusive agreement demonstrates the excellent progress our Brisbane facility is making in its support of the agricultural and firefighting aviation markets within the Australian region,” says Matt Dennington, general manager of Vector’s Brisbane facility. “We look forward to enhancing our relationship with Field Air in the coming years as they continue to develop and expand within the Asia Pacific region." 

Field Air and other operators throughout Asia Pacific also benefit from the support of Vector’s Mobile Repair Team (MRT), which is composed of 150 dedicated employees specifically focused on MRT operations globally. The MRT operation is designed around a ‘Quick Turn Around’ and ‘Travel Ready’ philosophy to support customers' needs 24/7. The majority of Vector’s MRT professionals are licensed A&P technicians, who have either worked in a service centre or as an MRT in their careers, and who on average benefit from more than 30 years of experience in their field.
