Dallas – March 7, 2017 – StandardAero received the triple crown of awards for “Customer Satisfaction,” “Program Investment” and “Total Quality” at the Rolls-Royce FIRST Network Recognition Reception, held on March 6 as part of Rolls-Royce’s attendance at this year’s HAI HELI-EXPO in Dallas, Texas.

The 2017 awards represented the unprecedented eighth year in a row that StandardAero has received the “Customer Satisfaction” award at the annual Rolls-Royce FIRST Network Recognition Reception. The Rolls-Royce Customer Satisfaction Award recognizes those facilities with the highest customer satisfaction ratings based on customer letters, performance, likelihood to recommend scores, 3rd party monitoring and customer surveys.

The Rolls-Royce Program Investment Award recognized StandardAero for its significant investment in capital assets to support the Rolls-Royce M250 marketplace both short and long-term.

The Rolls-Royce Total Quality Award recognized StandardAero for its specific compressor case life extension improvement programs to enhance engine performance and reduce corrosion. Since fielding this customer guaranteed program in 2016, there have been zero returns or issues with the program.
