StandardAero will maintain and support the propulsion systems of the Netherlands Air Force’s (RNLAF's) C-130H and C-130H-30 Hercules aircraft under a new multi-year contract announced on 24 June.

Under the contract, StandardAero will carry out maintenance and engineering support to deliver improved performance and reduced support costs for the RNLAF’s fleet of C-130H and C-130H-30 aircraft propulsion systems, including the Rolls-Royce T56-A-15LFE engines, Lockheed Martin Quick Engine Changes (QECs), Hamilton Sundstrand 54H60 propellers and all related components.

Harinder Grewal, senior vice president, government and military, StandardAero, said: ‘This contract award represents a key strategic opportunity for StandardAero to expand our regionally-based support for both C-130 and P-3 propulsion systems within the European market. This regional expansion offers European C-130 operators with the benefits of our industry-leading services and extends our reach to the broader international T56/501D community.’

According to the company, the primary support activity will be provided by StandardAero’s combined Rolls-Royce T56/501D Authorized Maintenance Center and Lockheed Martin Authorized C-130 QEC Service Center located in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada.  Domestic support will be provided by StandardAero from their European Service Center located in Tilburg, Netherlands.
