StandardAero has been recognised by Rolls-Royce during its annual FIRST (Fully Integrated Rolls-Royce Support Team) Network recognition event. The awards programme recognises the significant achievements of the more than 30 authorised maintenance service centres that provide MRO services for M250 and RR300 helicopter engines operated by thousands of customers worldwide.

StandardAero was awarded two out of four Rolls-Royce awards this year with the legacy StandardAero helicopters business unit winning the 'FIRST Class Service' award and the newly acquired H+S Aviation receiving the 'Outstanding Partnership' award. 2022 marked the 13th consecutive year that StandardAero has received one or more Rolls-Royce FIRST Network awards.

“StandardAero continues to provide world-class service and reliability that is synonymous with the Rolls-Royce brand," says R-R programme director, helicopters Scott Cunningham. "We appreciate the creative solutions StandardAero brings to our M250 and RR300 customer base. It can always be trusted to offer quick and effective plans to keep our customers flying and therefore has earned a strong reputation in the MRO business. Rolls-Royce looks forward to our continued partnership with its outstanding team.”

“We are extremely appreciative and also humbled to be recognised again this year by our trusted partners and customers at Rolls-Royce,” adds vice president and general manager of StandardAero's helicopters business unit Peter Wheatley. “The awards are a testament to the hardworking teams in our shops around the world, and recognition of their commitment to operational excellence, quality and outstanding customer service.”

StandardAero has three Rolls-Royce ­­­authorised maintenance repair and overhaul centre (AMROC) designations.
