StandardAero is celebrating 25 years of providing maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) support for the Rolls-Royce AE 3007 turbofan that powers the Embraer ERJ regional jet family including the Legacy 600 series, the Cessna Citation X business jet, the Northrop Grumman RQ/MQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft system (UAS) and the Boeing MQ-25 Stingray UAS. Since inducting its first AE 3007 in 1997, StandardAero's Maryville, Tennessee facility has processed over 6,500 engines for operators worldwide.
StandardAero is the only US-based AE 3007 authorised maintenance centre (AMC), with full approval for all variants including the AE 3007A, AE 3007C and AE 3007H. The company has extensive in-house repair capabilities for the engine, which enables it to provide customers with industry leading turn-times, lower engine operating costs and world-class customer support.
“StandardAero is the support provider of choice for AE 3007 operators around the globe, and we strive to deliver the quality of service that customers associate with the Rolls-Royce brand, day in and day out,” says vice president and general manager of the Maryville facility Randy Mengel. “We value the confidence that Rolls-Royce has entrusted in us across the entire AE family of engines and look forward to supporting AE 3007 operators worldwide over the next quarter century.”
StandardAero supports all three members of the Rolls-Royce AE engine family: the Maryville facility also services the AE 1107 turboshaft engine, which powers the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft and, in conjunction with the company's Winnipeg, Manitoba facility, supports the AE 2100 turboprop that powers the Leonardo C-27 Spartan, the Lockheed Martin C-130J / LM-100J Super Hercules and the Saab 2000 regional aircraft. In addition, the Maryville facility also supports the MT7 variant that powers the Textron LCAC 100-class Ship-to-Shore Connector.
StandardAero's 154,000 sq ft Maryville facility also supports a wide range of auxiliary power units, including the Honeywell GTCP 36-100/150 and RE220, the Pratt & Whitney Canada APS 2300 and the Safran Power Units SPU300.
