Ontic, the aerospace industry’s leading provider of extended life solutions for original quipment manufacturer legacy products, has acquired the manufacturing rights from the Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp of additional JT15D engine parts, in the fourth phase of a process that started back in 2015.
This is Ontic’s fourth acquisition from Pratt & Whitney Canada, which adds significantly to the Cheltenham manufacturer’s growing portfolio of engine support capabilities. Ontic will manufacture and sell the additional JT15D components from its California, USA facility and the parts will continue to be distributed through the JT15D new parts distributor, Boeing Distribution, Inc.

With more than 6,700 engines produced since the 1970s, the JT15D is used on a wide range of business aircraft, including the Cessna Citation II, Hawker 400A and Cessna Citation V and the T1-A JayHawk.
Ontic’s global legacy focus is supported by manufacturing and MRO facilities in Chatsworth, California; Creedmoor, North Carolina; Plainview, New York; Cheltenham and in Singapore.
With over 46 years of aerospace product manufacturing and aftermarket support experience, Ontic’s portfolio of products, licensed or acquired from major OEMs such as Honeywell, Collins Aerospace, Safran, Thales and GE Aviation, span all major aircraft systems in both civil and military markets.
