Wheatley to head up StandardAero helicopters unit
Peter Wheatley has 17 years of experience with StandardAero and moves from his former position as director of engineering for the helicopters business unit, within StandardAero's components and accessories division.

StandardAero has appointed Peter Wheatley as VP and GM of the company's helicopters business unit, located in Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada. In his new role, Wheatley will be responsible for managing StandardAero's broad range of support offerings for the helicopter segment, which include OEM-authorised engine MRO, airframe support, dynamic component repair, crash resistant fuel systems and avionics installations. StandardAero's helicopters business unit is the world's largest independent MRO provider that supports helicopter operators from locations in North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

Wheatley has 17 years of experience with StandardAero and moves to this new role from his former position as director of engineering for the helicopters business unit, within StandardAero's components, helicopters and accessories division. He was previously director of sales operations for the company's airlines and fleets division, prior to which he served in various production, engineering, quality and customer programme roles within StandardAero. Following the company's acquisition of Vector Aerospace in 2017, Wheatley led the successful transition of StandardAero's Rolls-Royce M250/RR300 engine lines to help establish the company's helicopter engine MRO centre of excellence.

“Peter represents the next generation of leaders for StandardAero,” says Rick Stine, president of the company's helicopters, components and accessories. “His leadership experience, energy, technical savvy and in-depth knowledge of the helicopter industry will serve our customers well. I'm confident he will successfully run our operations and continue his bright career at StandardAero.”
