Scottsdale, Ariz. – April 19, 2017 – StandardAero’s European Service Center (ESC), located in Tilburg, the Netherlands, has received EASA and FAA certifications for Honeywell HTF7000 turbofan MRO services and is now authorized to support business aviation operators within the EMEA region.
In March of 2016, StandardAero was authorized by Honeywell Aerospace as the industry’s only independent MRO heavy maintenance provider for the Honeywell HTF7000 family of turbofan engines. Subsequently, the company was also authorized to provide HTF7000 minor and line maintenance services for European business aviation operators from its ESC.
The minor and line authorization allows StandardAero’s ESC to perform all scheduled and unscheduled workscopes up to and including the 8,000 hour borescope inspections, including combustor liner changes. StandardAero also manages and administers a rental pool of HTF7000 series engines.
“Our EASA and FAA certifications, along with our ESC minor line maintenance authorization, demonstrate the new competencies we bring to HTF7000 engine operators on the European continent,” said Marc McGowan, President of StandardAero Business Aviation. “We are continuing to ramp up our HTF7000 capabilities both in Europe and the U.S. and we are currently well ahead of our plans for servicing operators all around the world.”
