Vince D’Angelo is the Operations Program Management (OPM) lead for the PW100. He has dedicated the past 10 years to the engine. A driving force in PW100 Operations, he is relentless in achieving quality and on-time delivery of legacy engines and the flawless entry into production of new engines. In fact, Vince set up the first Quality Clinic dedicated to the PW100, which helped dramatically reduce the number of OEM interventions and improve quality. He also introduced pre-dress and post-test visual-inspection checklists to ensure that all steps were rigorously followed prior to engine testing and final packaging. Today, we can count on the CVIS robot to handle the post-test verification task!
Committed and dependable people like Vince D’Angelo have helped build the Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) traditions of innovation and excellence. Thank you, Vince.
The PW100 is the engine of choice it is today thanks, in part, to Vince D’Angelo, who has been a member of the P&WC team for 34 years.
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.
