StandardAero APU Training: Coming Soon to a Facility Near You

Orlando, Fla. – October 30, 2012 – StandardAero Business Aviation is hitting the road, taking its knowledge in Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) maintenance and repair, to its customers coast-to-coast throughout North America.

Training offered includes an overview of technical issues involving the GTCP-36 series APU, a review of airflow through the units, borescope inspections, service bulletins and common problems with Line Replaceable Units (LRUs).

“Given the infrequency of APU issues, troubleshooting problems in their performance is not something maintenance crews are that well-versed in; StandardAero, on the other hand, is,” said Eric Thompson, Product Director, Engines, StandardAero. “The Crew Chiefs we send to provide the training are armed with more than 17 years experience in APU maintenance and troubleshooting.”

Echoing Thompson’s support of the program is Scott Taylor, StandardAero’s Senior Vice President of Business Aviation. Taylor added that taking the company’s skilled technicians to its customers, is not only convenient, but a valuable cost-saving resource for customers, teaching them how to spot APU issues on their own, without having to invest in costly outsourcing repair work.

StandardAero has already completed several training courses and is working on its schedule for 2013. Flight departments interested in the training schedule should contact Eric Thompson at [email protected] for more information.

StandardAero will be exhibiting at the 65th Annual National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Convention and Expo, October 30 – November 1, 2012, in Orlando, Fla.; Booth 2000.
