The VMAX program is focused on keeping operators flying, and combines the responsive, high-quality support provided by Vector Aerospace’s fully-authorized JT15D Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) and global field service team with a convenient pay-per-hour engine service plan.  Owners of engines enrolled in the VMAX program receive worldwide coverage through a dedicated 24/7 customer support line and regular monthly hours reporting.

Vector`s JT15D VMAX program is the evolution for JT15D customer support in servicing engines in this market. There are approximately 5,250 JT15D engines in service today, major applications for the type including the Cessna Citation I / II / V / Ultra series and the Hawker 400/Beechjet family.

As a further demonstration of its commitment to operators of the JT15D, Vector has also extended its DOF license for the engine by a further ten years, to 2032.  This undertaking ensures that VMAX customers can be confident of benefitting from Vector’s long-term support of the JT15D powerplant.

“We are very proud to have been entrusted by P&WC with meeting the go-forward engine service plan needs of its JT15D operators,” says Jeff Poirier, President of Vector Aerospace Engine Services – Atlantic.  “Operators of the JT15D engine can rest assured that our team of customer service professionals here at Vector will deliver the same standards of service, quality and responsiveness through VMAX  that they have come to expect.”


“Vector has 15 years of experience with supporting JT15D engine operators around the world as a P&WC DOF, and has tailored its technical expertise to the needs of the VMAX program,” continues Poirier. “We are also proud of our long-running relationship with P&WC, not only as a DOF on the JT15D series, but also as a DOF on the PW100, PW150, PW300 engine families and as a Distributor & Designated Overhaul Facility (DDOF) on  the PT6A and PT6T engine families.”
