StandardAero has recently signed a services agreement with Carolina Aviation Technical Services (CATS), a Part 145 repair station based at Statesville Regional airport in North Carolina. The agreement, which extends StandardAero's long-running relationship with CATS, covers the provision of MRO services for the Pratt & Whitney PT6A and PW100 turboprop engines and the JT15D turbofan.
CATS is a certified maintenance centre for a wide range of aircraft from various manufacturers including Beechcraft, Cessna and Dornier, and an avionics dealership for Honeywell and FDS. The services agreement will allow it to ensure that its customers benefit from seamless engine MRO support, minimising downtime while locking in competitive pricing. Owner Peter Sistare says: “We are pleased to be able to extend our relationship with StandardAero. Most importantly it provides the right services to assist us with our customers in the field.”
StandardAero vice president sales and marketing for airline and fleets business unit Jason Johnson adds: “This agreement, which is part of our on-going engagement with FBOs and repair stations, ensures that CATS and its customers will benefit from the highest quality PW100, PT6A and JT15D MRO services, at cost-effective rates.”
