A number of Exchange Income Corporation's (EIC) air operators have selected StandardAero to provide support services for Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100, PT6A and JT15D engines. Under the multi-year agreement, StandardAero will provide responsive engine MRO services to the following EIC Canadian air operators: Air Borealis, Calm Air International, Canlink Aviation (dba MFC Training), Keewatin Air, Perimeter Aviation, PAL Aerospace, PAL Airlines and Wasaya Airways.
This agreement extends a longstanding relationship between EIC's air operators and StandardAero, which has supported certain of EIC's air operators from its Canadian overhaul and service centre locations for several decades. Under the new agreement, StandardAero will support EIC's air operators from its location in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, Canada, which is a OEM-authorised PW100 designated overhaul facility (DOF), an OEM-authorised PT6A DOF with distribution rights on certain engine models and an OEM-authorised JT15D DOF. StandardAero will also provide additional support from its network of service centres.
Commenting on the agreement for the EIC air operators, David White, executive vice president aviation, says: “In our years of work together, EIC's air operators have always appreciated StandardAero's professionalism, reliability, attention to detail and understanding of our business. We are pleased to continue our relationship with StandardAero moving forward.”
StandardAero president of airlines and fleets Lewis Prebble adds: “StandardAero is delighted to have been chosen by EIC to support its family of Canadian air operators. We are truly honoured to have been entrusted by EIC with the PW100, PT6A and JT15D MRO needs of its air operators and look forward to continuing this close relationship through the provision of reliable, high quality and value for money services for many years to come.”
