​USN issues depot-level repair services contract for engines powering the P-3 Orion, C-130 Hercules and C-2A Greyhound.

StandardAero is providing engine depot-level repair services for a range of USN-operated aircraft, under a $148.95 million contract from the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division.

The contract covers T56-family engines that power the P-3 Orion MPA, C-130 Hercules and C-2A Greyhound aircraft.

Work will be performed in San Antonio, Texas (75%) and Winnipeg, Canada (25%), for completion in March 2026.

No funds will be obligated at the time of award, the DoD announced on 22 March. Instead, funds will be obligated on individual orders as they are issued.

The Rolls-Royce (formerly Allison) T56 family is one of the most widely used military turboprop engines in the world, notes Shephard Defence Insight, with more than 18,000 produced and 200 million flight hours achieved.
