Jeffrey was part of the pioneering team in charge of setting up Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) capabilities for the PW100 in Singapore. He was among the employees sent to the United States for training and to acquire technical maintenance knowledge of the engine.
Over the years, Jeffrey helped establish the Singapore facility as one of the PW100 Service Centres of Excellence. Among his achievements, Jeffrey designed a fuel-nozzle spray booth to conduct in-house tests that allow faster and more reliable diagnosis of nozzle flow. Today, he continues to support customers and train employees, sharing the invaluable knowledge he has accumulated over the years.
The PW100 is the engine of choice it is today thanks, in part, to Jeffrey Tan, who has been a member of the Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) team for over 24 years. He is one of the committed and dependable people who have helped build the P&WC traditions of innovation and excellence. Thank you, Jeffrey.
Over the course of 30 years, a great many people at P&WC have contributed to the immense success of the PW100. To celebrate the engine that revolutionized the global regional market, we issued an appeal and asked for the names of those who have left their mark on its design, build and evolution.
We received over 150 names! As planned, we picked 30 names for the 30th anniversary of a December day in 1984, when two P&WC PW120A engines powered the first commercial flight of a Dash 8-100 from de Havilland Aircraft, soaring to the sound of bagpipes from Sault Ste. Marie to Kapuskasing, Timmins and Sudbury in Ontario, Canada.
