Geneva, Switzerland – May 14, 2012 – StandardAero announced today that Associated Air Center (AAC), its Large Transport Category, VIP Aircraft Completions Center in Dallas, Texas, has logged multiple Boeing Business Jet (BBJ), 12-year inspection service contracts. To date, AAC has completed two and currently has two in work. AAC also has four additional 12-year service inspections scheduled for the remainder of 2012. These 12-year checks are on the first deliveries of the BBJ.
