EVENDALE, OH - June 8, 2012 - GE has named StandardAero Business Aviation as an authorized service center for CF34-3 engines, which power Bombardier's Challenger series. As part of this agreement, StandardAero is approved to perform line maintenance inspections, routine installed engine maintenance, removal and replacement of engines and removal and reinstallation of external engine components. This designation also allows StandardAero to provide OnPointSM solution agreement and warranty support and facilitates access to both GE materials and technical support.
"StandardAero has been a long-time partner in the maintenance, repair and overhaul of the GE CF34 engine, last month announcing the delivery of our 1000th engine," said Scott Taylor, Senior Vice President, Business Aviation, StandardAero. "For years our Airlines and Fleets sector in Winnipeg has enjoyed a robust partnership; we aim to replicate that relationship within Business Aviation. Our knowledge and experience of the engine and our proven track record make today's announcement a win-win for both companies. We're excited about this new opportunity and look forward to adding the CF34-powered Challenger to our service portfolio."
"GE and StandardAero have a long-standing relationship, and the authorized CF34 service center designation is a natural fit," said Brad Mottier, vice president and general manager of GE Aviation's Business & General Aviation organization. "StandardAero has extensive expertise with the CF34 engine line, and our customers will have another high-quality service center to help them with their line maintenance needs."
