Chromalloy and MTU deliver 300th Engine to USAF KC-10 Fleet

A celebration was held at MTU Maintenance Canada, Vancouver, British Columbia on Oct 26, 2016 commemorating the 300th engine delivered by MTU and Chromalloy to the USAF KC-10 Fleet. The event consisted of stops at MTU’s Engine Test Cell, Accessory Repair Center, and the Riverside Maintenance Facility. Chromalloy and repair partner MTU were presented plaques by Northrop Grumman for outstanding work and significant contributions to the superb readiness of the USAF KC-10 Fleet.

Chromalloy was represented by Dave Dober, KC-10 Program Director, and Heather Chaput, Chromalloy Holdings Canada Service Center Manager. Also in attendance were the KC-10 program leadership teams from both Northrop Grumman Technology Services and MTU Maintenance Canada.

At each stop, representatives for both companies addressed MTU employees to thank them for their personal effort and hard work on behalf of the USAF KC-10 program. Overall program performance and substantial achievements along the way were recognized including: producing engines with twice the required Exhaust Gas Temperature Margin; 83% increase in average daily spare levels since contract start; zero discrepancy aircraft delivered from heavy maintenance; and award nominations for the 2014 Defense Logistics awards and the 2015 Aviation Week Program Excellence awards.

Dober, a retired US Navy Captain and F/A-18 pilot, related his experience of being a true KC-10 customer on the receiving end of KC-10 fuel offloads – otherwise known as being “in the basket.” At the Riverside facility he said, “Your personal efforts have directly contributed to increases in combat readiness and ultimately combat mission accomplishment. I look forward to the continued success of the Chromalloy/MTU team.”
