StandardAero Defense Services Europe (formerly named DutchAero Services) is located at the Woensdrecht Air Base in Hoogerheide, the Netherlands. The engine MRO facility at this Air Base was established by the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) and is in operation since 1953. In 1981 it started with the overhaul of Pratt and Whitney F100 engines and since then has overhauled more than 3,000 F100 engines.

Since 2011, the F100 maintenance activities are performed in a Public Private Partnership (PPP) between StandardAero Defense Services Europe and the Royal Netherlands Air Force. The PPP is operated under a GOCO construct (Government Owned, Contractor Operated). StandardAero works closely together with the Netherlands Ministry of Defense in a Government Owned Contractor Operated arrangement. The required Technical Assistance Agreements are in place.
