Winnipeg, Canada — Standard Aero is now offering modification of the Rolls-Royce Model 250 engine series III and IV air/oil separator gears. The modification is in response to engine modification CEB 72-3271 released by Rolls-Royce last year, which requires the replacement or rework of the gears to an improved gear configuration.
Standard Aero is the first authorized maintenance center approved by Rolls-Royce to perform this modification. By applying a Molybdenum plasma spray to the gear web the part is converted to the new configuration.
“We now offer our customers this modification at a fraction of the new-part replacement cost,” said Doug Roberge, Engineering Director, Heli SBU, for Standard Aero. “This is a fairly simple modification so it’s a relatively quick turn-time. We’ve already performed more than 160 of these modifications,” added Roberge.
The Rolls-Royce Model 250 modification is performed at Standard Aero’s Winnipeg, Manitoba facility.
