Las Vegas, Nev. – October 10, 2011 – Last year, when StandardAero introduced its FastLane™ program, its turnaround times for TFE731 Core Zone Inspection (CZI) overhauls and Major Periodic Inspections (MPIs) were averaging 14 days and six days, respectively. For 2011, the company has announced that its turn times on CZIs have continued to improve, besting its 14-day CZI overhaul by three days – down from 14 to 11.
“Our vision for Business Aviation is to ensure a world class, total customer experience and aircraft solution and serving as the industry benchmark for comprehensive service and quality,” said Scott Taylor, senior vice president, Business Aviation, StandardAero. “FastLane™ continues to be our lightning rod in this crusade. When the customer is managing a valuable asset such as an aircraft for their company, we focus on how StandardAero can best support keeping that asset working for them. Our processes are world class and it shows in our blistering service cycle. Our nearly two-fold reduction in turn time puts customers back in the air roughly 50 percent faster, reducing down time and increasing aircraft productivity; saving customers money.”
In addition to its TFE731, CFE738, HTF7000 and TPE-331 work, StandardAero also is a volume leader in CF34, AE3007 and PT6 heavy maintenance. For more information on StandardAero’s industry-leading TFE731 turnaround times, go to, www.tfe731fastlane.com
