StandardAero to Highlight Full Range of Service Options for Aircraft Owners/Operators at 2009 NBAA Convention

As one of the only service providers who can deliver total services from full engine overhaul to avionics to airframe maintenance to completions and STC development, StandardAero brings to customers a “one stop shop” value.


ORLANDO, Fla. – Oct. 19, 2009 – StandardAero, a Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) company, will highlight its broad spectrum of business aviation services during the National Business Aviation Association Convention and Annual Meeting Oct. 20-22, 2009. As one of the only service providers who can deliver total services from full engine overhaul to avionics to airframe maintenance to completions and Supplemental Type Certificate Development, StandardAero brings to customers a level of “one stop shop” value that no one else can match.

“The breadth of our service offerings along with a focus on building strong relationships with our customers sets StandardAero apart,” said Rob Mionis, President & CEO of StandardAero. “Everyday our dedicated employees strive to solve customer problems and deliver “perfect service” that the corporate flight department needs to service THEIR customer…the VIP passenger.”

StandardAero Focused on Improving the Customer Experience

StandardAero’s new Senior Vice President for Business Aviation, Scott Taylor, is tapping into his 20-plus years of general aviation experience to develop a new vision for the company’s business aviation sector. Fundamental to Taylor’s vision for this sector involves building upon the company’s solid reputation in order to improve its position in airframe, avionics, modifications and interior refurbishment, as well as expanding engine programs both domestically and in the international markets. Focusing on aircraft-level services allows customers to deal with a single service provider from airframe maintenance to engine overhaul to avionics upgrades and deal with a single customer service professional with one thing in mind – making the aircraft MRO experience more simple and positively predictable.

Taylor brings a background rich in leadership, excellent product knowledge and an outstanding awareness of the systems and business models that drive the business aviation market. His vision for improving the customer experience will be realized through facility upgrades and capability expansions as well as with a strong emphasis on improving customer service and the overall customer experience. Beginning in early 2010, customers will begin seeing immediate changes in StandardAero’s four primary shops across the United States, including Augusta, Ga., Springfield, Ill., Houston, Texas, and Los Angeles, Calif., with capabilities in Omaha, Neb. and Little Rock, Ark. Each of these main business aviation facilities has deep experience in Falcon, Hawker, Gulfstream, Bombardier and newly added Embraer platforms.

Renewed Focus on STC Development

StandardAero continues to aggressively expand the comprehensiveness of its service offerings and shape the industry by focusing on its engineering and certification capabilities. Underscoring this strategy is its recent receipt of a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) at its Springfield, Ill. location, the first from the Chicago Aircraft Certification Office. This designation enables StandardAero to provide design and certification services leading to the issuance of STCs for alterations and modifications on a broad range of aerospace products. These include complete interiors, engine retrofits, airframe modifications, cabin entertainment systems, glass cockpits and other major avionics upgrades on most Transport Category aircraft models and most turbine-powered aircraft weighing less than 12,500 pounds. The company has already secured contracts for nearly $300,000 in work.
