StandardAero's engine overhaul facility in Prince Edward Island, Canada finished 2019 on a high, inducting over 1,000 Pratt & Whitney PW100, PT6A and JT15D engines during the course of the year. This record figure was achieved following the recent expansion of the facility, StandardAero's commercial turboprop engine MRO Center of Excellence, which saw the site expand its shop floor area to over 226,000 sq ft of leased space. The facility, located at the Summerside airport in Slemon Park, also grew its workforce to approximately 500 employees.

The 1,000th engine to be inducted was a PW121 for long-standing regional airline customer Air Creebec, in support of the airline's fleet of de Havilland Canada Dash 8 turboprop aircraft. Air Creebec is based in Val-d'Or, Quebec, and operates regularly scheduled flights, charter and freight services to 16 destinations in Quebec and Ontario.

Vice president and general manager of the Summerside facility Jeff Poirier says: “This record total of 1,000 engine inductions during 2019 is a testament to the dedication and customer focus of our Summerside team, which has stepped up to meet every challenge asked of it this year. The team has justified the recent additional investment made by StandardAero into the site, and continues to provide unrivalled customer service to our customers.”
