"These events give us a chance to reconnect in a meaningful way with our customers, who are the core of our business," says Jeff Poirier, president of ES-A. “Attendees are given the opportunity to learn more about the PT6A turboprop engine and meet with true turboprop experts. We were very fortunate to have a representative from P&WC’s customer service team, along with members from Vector’s team on hand during both events.”
“Capital Airlines Limited wishes to thank ES-A for organizing a very informative and interesting Customer Day for PT6A engine operators in Nairobi,” says Capt. Himat Vaghela, owner and managing director of Capital Airlines Limited, who attended the Customer Day event in Nairobi. “The inclusion of P&WC and Blackhawk Modifications added great value to the proceedings.
