StandardAero adds PW127M to its P&WC engine services

27th May 2009 - 10:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


StandardAero has been granted an extension of its Designated Overhaul Facility licence to include the PW127M engine. Addition of the PW127M allows the company to perform MRO services on newer ATR 42-500s and ATR 72-500s and will enable it to prepare engine maintenance programmes for the ATR 42-600 and ATR 72-600 which are due to enter service in 2011.

“StandardAero has had a long-standing relationship with Pratt & Whitney Canada serving as a Designated Overhaul Facility on PW100 series engines. This new authorisation adds to those capabilities and strengthens our portfolio in aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul,” said 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 programmes 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.
