StandardAero’s Helicopter Programs Business Achieves Top Marks in Customer Satisfaction

Dallas, Texas – February 12, 2012 – StandardAero Helicopter Programs checks in to Heli-Expo 2012 with a newly coined moniker: #1 in Customer Satisfaction. The ranking is based on customer feedback data acquired by independent market research firm, Ducker Worldwide. Complementary to the positive results from the Ducker surveys, in 2010 and 2011, StandardAero also received the Rolls-Royce FIRST Network’s Customer Satisfaction Award.

‘We’re pleased with the results of this year’s Ducker Surveys,” said Manny Atwal, Vice President, Helicopter Programs, StandardAero. “We’ve long considered ourselves leaders in customer satisfaction and Ducker’s “voice of the customer” surveys help validate our claims. They confirm that our workmanship, work progress communication, timeliness of delivery, and issue resolution are the industry’s leader. We have always believed that if you want your helicopter engine serviced with excellence, come to StandardAero.”

The survey results indicated that over 98 percent of customers who used StandardAero in 2011 would recommend their services to others. Overall, StandardAero conducts more than 1,300 telephone surveys through its partnership with Ducker across several business segments. Survey results are then discussed with business leaders who take responsibility for analyzing and acting on the customer feedback and taking corrective actions, where necessary.

StandardAero is optimistic that 2012 will be another banner year for its Helicopter Programs and will be attending this year’s Heli-Expo in Dallas, Texas, on February 12-14, Booth #9446.
