Rolls-Royce RB211-535 Coming on line 3rd Quarter of 2018

In January 2018, StandardAero announced its selection by Rolls-Royce as the manufacturer’s ‘life of type’ maintenance service provider for the RB211-535E4 wide chord fan engine. The RB211-535, which powers 58% of all Boeing 757 medium-range airliners delivered, is expected to remain in commercial service until the year 2040.

StandardAero will service these engines at its San Antonio, TX, location, where the company recently acquired along-term lease for its existing facilities and added space to provide more capacity for engine MRO growth. The expanded lease space includes four additional engine test cells to support higher thrust class turbofan engines.

Generating 40,100 to 43,100 lb of power at take-off, the RB211-535E4 will be the highest thrust engine in StandardAero’s commercial MRO portfolio. As such, this new capability – being introduced in the second half of 2018 – will build on the company’s reputation as a leading provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul services for the CFM International CFM56-7B turbofan.

StandardAero will be the exclusive maintenance services provider for RB211-535 engines enrolled on the Rolls-RoyceTotalCare® power-by-the-hour program, ensuring that the mission availability requirements of customers supported through this long-term service agreement plan continue to be fully met.

Services provided by StandardAero on the RB211-535 will include full L3/L4 capability on all major modules and workscopes.
