StandardAero Singapore Extends Rolls-Royce Model 250 Authorized Maintenance Center

Houston, Texas – Feb. 26, 2010 – StandardAero’s Singapore facility has extended its authorization as an Authorized Maintenance Center (AMC). This authorization renews the level of support Standardaero can provide to Asia-Pacific Model 250 operators. Additionally, these customers will benefit from the support Singapore will receive from Winnipeg’s new Authorized Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Center (AMROC) authorization and its broad level of MRO support.

StandardAero has been servicing Model 250 engines and accessories for over 40 years. Through six MRO locations, the company provides worldwide support with over 1,050 individual book repairs and 165 Major or Critical repairs, over 30 of which are unique to StandardAero.

“Our Asian and Pacific customers will benefit tremendously from the additional MRO support Singapore will be able to provide,” said StandardAero Vice President Helicopter Programs, Tom Roche. “With support from our AMROC facility in Winnipeg, customers will be hard pressed to find the depth and breadth of support available from any other provider.”

The company’s fully-correlated engine test cells in Winnipeg and Singapore and its accessory test cells in Winnipeg, Singapore and Sydney quantify production data prior to shipment back to customers. In-house Design Approval Organization engineering provides operators with repair development and processes for the highest engine reliability.
