StandardAero to Provide Pratt & Whitney Canada PW300 Service

Atlanta, Ga. – October 18, 2010 – StandardAero has announced it will add service and support for Pratt & Whitney Canada PW300-series engines in early 2011. The company will support PW305, 307 and 308 engines at its four service centers as well as its broad Mobile Service Team network. These new engine service capabilities are being added to better serve customers with one-stop OEM authorized airframe and engine services.

“If an operator of a Falcon 2000EX, Falcon 7X or Learjet 60 requires either a scheduled maintenance check or has trouble with his engine, we will assist on the phone, dispatch a team or schedule him into our facilities,” said Scott Taylor, senior vice president, Business Aviation, StandardAero. “Operators can also get the benefit of combining an engine maintenance event with an airframe check or another of the myriad services we offer. Adding the PW300 series to our capabilities helps our customers and moves us closer to our goal to offer broad, comprehensive services for some of the most prestigious business jets in operation today.”

Additionally, StandardAero has entered into an agreement with Pratt & Whitney Engine Services, formerly Altair, for installing engine trend data transmission equipment. Coupled with PW300 engines, the equipment reduces inspection intervals and puts the engine on a virtual on-condition maintenance plan, removing the requirement for a fixed-time hot section inspection.

StandardAero, a Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) company with nearly $1.4 billion in annual revenue, specializes in engine maintenance, repair and overhaul, and nose-to-tail services that include airframe, interior refurbishments and paint for business and general aviation, air transport, and military aircraft. The company, part of the DAE Engineering division, forms a global services network of 12 primary facilities in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Singapore and Australia, with an additional 14 regionally located service and support locations.
