Scottsdale, Ariz. – February 1, 2018 – StandardAero has been authorized by Honeywell Aerospace as the exclusive provider in the Europe, Middle East, Africa and India (EMEAI) region for major maintenance repair and overhaul services (MRO) for the Honeywell TFE731 family of turbofan engines. The new agreement authorizes StandardAero to be the only maintenance facility, located in the EMEAI region, licensed to perform both Core Zone Inspections (CZIs) and MSP covered Major Periodic Inspections (MPIs). The authorization includes non-MSP covered engine maintenance as well. Additionally, StandardAero is authorized to perform line level maintenance on the 36-series APUs for business aviation aircraft operators in the EMEAI region.
The authorization, effective January 1, 2018, is a long-term agreement whereby StandardAero anticipates supporting more than 1,500 MPI & CZI engine events over the life of the contract.
The establishment of a Europe based TFE731 shop allows StandardAero to expand on its strong US-based network of MRO facilities. After a thorough program evaluation, StandardAero will perform TFE731 MPI and CZI engine events for EMEAI operators at the company’s Fleetlands, U.K. facility.
As part of the agreement, StandardAero will also stand up Europe-based Mobile Service Teams to provide on-site service to support approximately 600 operators in the region.
“Receiving this Honeywell authorization cements our reputation as the world leader on TFE731 engine maintenance,” said Eric Thompson, Engines Product Director for StandardAero Business Aviation. “StandardAero has performed more than 19,000 TFE731 MPI & CZI engine maintenance events during our 40 years of servicing this engine and we look forward to offering our experience, quality and world class turn-times to operators in the EMEAI region.”
