Completion of 20,000 TFE731 engine overhaul and celebration for StandardAero

StandardAero completed two industry milestones in time to celebrate at the 2018 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition event held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

The company announced the completion of its 20,000 TFE731 turbofan engine scheduled maintenance event on Oct. 2. The milestone also took place at the company’s new facility, located in Fleetlands U.K. after being selected as the location for StandardAero’s Honeywell TFE731 region engine heavy maintenance authorization earlier this year.

“Reaching this milestone is truly historic for StandardAero but even more satisfying that it occurred at our new EMEAI facility,” said Marc Drobny, president of StandardAero business aviation.

This far, StandardAero has invested more than $7 million in training, tooling, equipment, inventory and testing to bolster its Fleetlands facility. Fleetlands now plays part StandardAero’s support for the global TFE731 powered fleet.
