Cape Air opts for StandardAero Caravan support
Cape Air senior VP Jim Goddard is hoping to receive the same standards of service from StandardAero on the PT6A engine as for the PW100 platform in support of its ATR 42 fleet over the past 15 years.

Massachusetts-based Cape Air has selected StandardAero to provide engine support services for its fleet of Cessna Caravan aircraft. Under the agreement, StandardAero will provide Cape Air with Pratt & Whitney PT6A turboprop engine MRO services from its network of overhaul facilities and service centres in North America.

StandardAero is the largest independent Pratt & Whitney authorised PT6A designated overhaul facility (DOF) with distribution rights on certain engine models. The company supports the global 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. With more than 25 years of reliable turboprop experience, StandardAero provides operators with a nose-to-tail suite of services, including repair schemes, re-engineering STCs, engine exchanges, rentals and engine condition trend monitoring (ECTM) analysis.

Cape Air senior VP Jim Goddard says: “We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with StandardAero, which spans back to the former Vector Aerospace entity. We also look forward to receiving the same high standards of service from StandardAero on the PT6A engine that we have experienced from the company on the PW100 platform in support of our ATR 42 fleet over the past 15 years.”

StandardAero VP of sales and marketing Jason Johnson adds: “We are delighted to strengthen our long-standing support partnership with Cape Air through this new agreement. Having provided PW100 MRO services to the airline for many years, we are honoured to now be entrusted with support for Cape Air's PT6A engine fleet, and look forward to providing the airline with safe and reliable support for years to come.”

Now in its 30th year, Cape Air has grown from three flights a day between Provincetown and Boston in 1989 to a fleet of 100 aircraft, 400 flights a day and service to 500,000 passengers annually.
