Keystone earns R-R best in class award
The R-R Best in Class FIRST Network award goes to Keystone Turbine Services for providing continuous world-class MRO service and support to operators of the M250 gas turbine engine and related components.

Coatesville, Pennsylvania-based Precision Aviation Group (PAG) subsidiary Keystone Turbine Services (KTS) has been recognised by Rolls-Royce during its annual FIRST (Fully Integrated Rolls-Royce Support Team) Network event with the 2022 'Best in Class' award.

The annual awards programme recognises the significant achievements of the authorised MRO service centres that support M250 and RR300 helicopter engines operated worldwide. 2022 marks the second consecutive year that KTS has received the Rolls-Royce 'Best in Class' FIRST Network award. It represents excellence among peers; a team commonly identified by Rolls-Royce and operators as a preferred maintenance provider, enjoyable to work with, committed to serving the market and continually performing ahead of expectations.

“Rolls-Royce is very pleased with the continual strong performance Keystone offers our M250 operators. It continues to be a high performing facility that is able to meet the expectations of some of the highest demanding customers in the market,” says R-R programme director, helicopters Scott Cunningham.

“Among the other exceptional MRO service centres within the network, we are thrilled to have been recognised by our trusted partners, customers and Rolls-Royce to receive such a prestigious award,” adds PAG president and CEO David Mast. “Our customers and the experience we deliver to them are at the forefront of everything we do, so this award truly recognises the hard work, our commitment to our customers and being best in class. This award is dedicated to every team member who represents KTS."

The FIRST Network includes more than 30 approved, licensed service centres around the world. With its competitive structure, operators can find affordable and reliable services anywhere for Rolls-Royce M250 and RR300 engines and related components.
