StandardAero extends RR300 capabilities for North American operators
StandardAero has increased the capacity at two of its western Canada and US east coast Rolls-Royce approved facilities so they can provide dedicated service support for RR300 helicopter engines.

StandardAero has expanded two of its approved facilities for Rolls-Royce RR300 helicopter engine MRO. With this extra capability, the company is now able to service this engine type for Robinson R66 helicopter operators in Richmond, Vancouver in British Columbia and Concord, North Carolina, in addition to its existing facilities in Winnipeg in Manitoba, Portsmouth in the UK and Singapore.

While RR300 MRO will now take place at the two facilities, engine testing capabilities will remain at StandardAero's locations in Winnipeg, Portsmouth and Dallas. StandardAero also services helicopter engine LRUs including fuel control units, PT governors, fuel pumps and starter generators at its Portsmouth; Hialeah, Florida; and Broomfield, Colorado locations.

In addition to its repair and overhaul capabilities, StandardAero maintains an extensive pool of engines, modules and accessories for quick exchange services. The company has also made new investments in lease assets and is well positioned to service this growing market.

“StandardAero is pleased to expand our global MRO services for RR300 engines, and adding capabilities in western Canada and the US eastern coast significantly extends our geographic reach for servicing North American operators,” says director of customer service for the helicopter business unit Cory Waldmo. “We look forward to continuing to provide the industry's best engine MRO services for RR300 operators around the world.”
