StandardAero Business Aviation Expands into Parts Trading

Las Vegas, Nev. – October 10, 2011 – StandardAero Business Aviation announced today that it has expanded its strategic business focus to include the buying and selling of parts for general aviation aircraft. Included in the operation are APUs, whole engines, avionics and airframe components.

Initially focused solely on business aviation aircraft, the company has expanded its parts trading services to include regional airlines and air transport components,

“Given the breadth and global reach of StandardAero’s MRO network, we recognized the business synergies involved in parts selling and trading and integrated it into our core operational strategy,” said Scott Taylor, Senior Vice President, Business Aviation. “Our success in engaging this opportunity comes from our reach in the marketplace and our ability to draw from an extensive inventory. We have the ability to obtain parts from our North American service centers and our expanded network of global partnerships. In addition, we maintain an extensive inventory of parts on-hand. If we don’t have them, chances are that we can get them due to our vast reach and resource network.”

Currently, the company manages its parts trading business out of its Tempe, Ariz. facility with distribution capability from Tempe and our service locations of Los Angeles (LAX), Houston, Texas (IAH), Springfield, Ill (SPI) and Augusta, Ga. (AGS).

StandardAero will be exhibiting at the 64th Annual National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Convention and Expo on Oct. 10–12, 2011, in Las Vegas, Nev., (Booth N6116).
