StandardAero Posts Blistering and Industry-Leading Turn Times for TFE731 Engine Work

ORLANDO, Fla. – Oct. 19, 2009 – StandardAero, a Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) company does more TFE731 heavy maintenance work than anyone else in the world; now they are doing it faster too.

Average industry turnaround times for TFE731 Core Zone Inspection (CZI) overhauls are 28 days. At StandardAero’s Houston facility, the average turn time on CZIs and Major Periodic Inspections (MPIs) are consistently tracking at 14 days and six days, respectively. As part of their show participation, StandardAero will be offering exclusive CZI and MPI incentives for contracts signed at the show.

“As a full service, a tip-to-tail provider, StandardAero customers can get their CZI completed in conjunction with an airframe inspection without a return visit, meaning less maintenance downtime and substantial costs savings,” said Rob Mionis, President & CEO, StandardAero. “This capability, along with our world-class turnaround times, is another example of our operational excellence model being implemented across all five StandardAero sectors.”

“Our vision for Business Aviation is to ensure a world class ‘total customer experience’ delivering a level of customer satisfaction second-to-none and serving as the industry benchmark for service quality,” said Scott Taylor, Senior Vice President, Business Aviation for StandardAero. “Getting our customers flying again with minimal downtime reduces costs to our customers, enables maximum asset utilization and provides them with a favorable, quality-driven customer experience. This helps them and it helps us; it is a win-win for both.”

In addition to its TFE731 work, StandardAero is also a volume leader in CF34, AE3007 and PT6 heavy maintenance. Augmenting its diverse and comprehensive line of engine and airframe MRO services, the company, last month celebrated the groundbreaking for its newest facility expansion, an additional 27,000 square feet, to accommodate the recent contract award for maintenance support of the General Electric CFM56 engine.
