StandardAero's Business Aviation team recently inducted its 1,000th Honeywell HTF7000 series engine into the company's Augusta, Georgia facility, making it the first to achieve this significant milestone in support of the engine series. StandardAero is the industry's first and only OEM-authorised independent, heavy MRO provider for this engine model and has performed more HTF7000 major events than other company in the industry.

Over the past three years, the company has continued to invest in efforts to grow HTF7000 services, expanding its test cell capability and tooling as well as improving turn-around times for customers. HTF7000 series engines are designed for on-condition maintenance, which can help operators minimise risk and disruption to flight schedules due to unexpected engine repairs by conducting regularly scheduled borescope inspections. StandardAero also owns the industry's largest HTF7000 series engine rental bank where engine removal and replacement can be performed by StandardAero's geographically dispersed mobile services teams on-site for customers, or at the company's Augusta facility, where HTF7000 series engines are routinely serviced.

The HTF7000 is the engine of choice for a wide variety of business aviation aircraft in the mid-size and super mid-size categories such as the Bombardier Challenger 300 and 350, the Embraer Legacy 450 and 500 and Praetor 500 and 600, the Gulfstream G280 and the Cessna Citation Longitude.

“Our record 1,000th engine milestone is a direct reflection of the enormous efforts of the talented and dedicated men and women at StandardAero,” says vice president and general manager Chris Bodine. “We take great pride in the many decades of experience servicing these and other engines and business jet operators know that when they come to StandardAero, they will receive the best quality and service experience available in our industry.”
