Geneva – May 23, 2016 – In order to provide increased service and support to European business aviation operators flying Embraer Legacy 600/650 aircraft in the region, StandardAero has appointed Jet Aviation Basel, as a Rolls-Royce AE 3007A engine Service Center.
“By establishing this agreement, StandardAero now has a service partner in the heart of Europe and we look forward to referring our Embraer Legacy 600/650 clients to the Jet Aviation Basel Maintenance Center,” said Kerry O’Sullivan, Vice President of Operations and General Manager of StandardAero’s Maryville, Tennessee MRO facility. “This not only makes valuable services available to operators who are based in Europe, it also gives operators who fly their Embraer Legacy 600/650 aircraft to Europe from North America the comfort of having a partner who can help support their services requirements.”
