TEMPE, AZ – StandardAero has been granted an extension of its Designated Overhaul Facility license to include the PW127M engine. Addition of the PW127M to its existing platform of Pratt & Whitney engine services expands StandardAero's breadth of capabilities by allowing it to perform MRO services on the ATR42-500, ATR72-500, ATR42-600, and ATR72-600 series turboprop aircraft -- all powered by the PW127M engine.
"StandardAero has had a long-standing relationship with Pratt & Whitney Canada serving as a Designated Overhaul Facility on PW100 series engines. This new authorization adds to those capabilities and strengthens our portfolio in aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul," says StandardAero President & CEO, Rob Mionis. "The ability to augment our product portfolio is excellent news under any circumstances, but is especially rewarding under the current economic conditions our industry is experiencing."
The PW127M is the next evolution of the PW127E and F programs currently offered on the ATR42/72 platform. StandardAero currently conducts MRO services on the PW127E and F series engines at its Tilburg facility in The Netherlands. Certification as a Designated Overhaul Facility on the PW 127M allows StandardAero to continue supporting the evolving PW100 engine market.
