PARIS – June 17, 2019 – StandardAero has signed an exclusive 3-year maintenance services agreement with GKN Fokker Services, covering the provision of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) support for turboprop engines. StandardAero will support GKN Fokker Services from its Designated Overhaul Facilities (DOFs) in Gonesse, France; Summerside, PE, Canada; and Seletar, Singapore.
Headquartered in the Netherlands, GKN Fokker Services – part of GKN Aerospace – is an independent aerospace service provider of affordable and reliable availability solutions to airlines, OEMs and MROs.
