StandardAero completes 20,000 TFE731 overhauls
This year StandardAero has invested more than $7 million in training, tooling, equipment, inventory and testing to bolster its Fleetlands facility in the UK; a critical part of its support for the TFE731 powered fleet.

StandardAero has completed its 20,000th TFE731 turbofan engine scheduled maintenance event at its UK facility in Fleetlands, which was selected as the location for StandardAero's Honeywell TFE731 EMEAI region engine heavy maintenance authorisation earlier this year.

In February, StandardAero announced its Honeywell agreement to be the only authorised heavy maintenance facility, located in the EMEAI region, licensed to perform both CZIs and MPIs. Additionally, the company is authorised to perform line level maintenance on the 36-series APUs for business aviation aircraft operators in the EMEAI region. The authorisation is a long-term agreement whereby StandardAero anticipates supporting more than 1,500 MPI and CZI engine events over the contract life. As part of the agreement, StandardAero is standing up Europe-based mobile service teams to provide on-site service to support approximately 600 operators in the region.

StandardAero Business Aviation president Marc Drobny says: “Reaching this milestone is truly historic for StandardAero but even more satisfying that it occurred at our new EMEAI facility. I want to thank our team in the UK for making such great progress to stand up our capabilities in the region.”
