StandardAero has extended its long-running relationship with aerospace and defence company Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) with the signing of a five-year agreement covering MRO support for the Pratt & Whitney PT6A and PW100 turboprop engines. StandardAero will support SNC from its designated overhaul facility (DOF) in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Canada, and its other global locations.

“StandardAero is extremely pleased to further extend its close relationship with SNC through this five-year engine MRO support agreement,” says StandardAero Airlines & Fleets vice president, global sales and marketing Jason Johnson. “SNC is one of our most valued customers on the PT6A and PW100 engine families, and we are delighted to be able to support the company's diverse international activities with our global network of overhaul facilities and service centres. We look forward to extending our relationship with SNC to include auxiliary power unit (APU) support services in the near future.”

SNC provides command, control, computers, communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions, with experience on over 200 different types of manned and unmanned platforms including the Beechcraft King Air and Cessna Caravan. In addition, SNC provides aircraft design, modification and support services for a range of platforms including the Dornier 328, supported via its German subsidiary 328 Support Services.

Sierra Nevada Corporation senior procurement manager James Livingston says: “SNC continues to be very pleased with the level and quality of service and support that we receive from StandardAero on all levels, and we look forward to continuing our relationship in the future.”

StandardAero supports the global P&W PT6A operator community from four DOFs located in North America, Europe, Africa and Australasia, backed up by a global network of seven service centres and over twenty dedicated mobile repair technicians. StandardAero is also a DOF for the P&W PW100/PW150A engine families, with overhaul facility locations in Summerside, PE, Canada; Gonesse, France; and Seletar, Singapore, supported by seven service centre locations across the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia. With more than 25 years of reliable turboprop experience, StandardAero provides operators with a nose-to-tail suite of services that includes repair capabilities, engine exchanges, rentals and engine condition trend monitoring (ECTM) analysis.
