StandardAero Appointed Dealer for Pratt & Whitney Engine Services

Atlanta, Ga. – October 18, 2010 – StandardAero is now a dealer for Pratt & Whitney Engine Services, formerly Altair. This designation authorizes the company to install data transfer units at all its facilities, and perform the required certification work.

Operators of PW300-powered aircraft can benefit from the installing a Data Transfer Unit (DTU) that collects engine data and transfers it automatically and wirelessly to Pratt & Whitney’s WebECTMTM data processing. This service provides the operator with engine trend prognosis and shop event planning. It also comes with a reduced Eagle Service Plan (ESP) hourly cost and the possibility, in the case of the PW308, to replace the hot-section inspection (HSI) with a borescope inspection, greatly reducing the maintenance burden, cost and downtime associated with the HSI.

“We’re excited about the enhanced comprehensive services that we can now provide Falcon 7X, Falcon 2000EX and Lear 60 operators,” said Scott Taylor, senior vice president, Business Aviation, StandardAero. “Today’s announcement is another example of our expanding breadth of capabilities and service offerings.”
