21/12/2015 StandardAero LAUNCHES PT6A FASTLANE "TM" ENGINE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – December 18, 2015 – StandardAero has launched a new, customized accelerated response program to support PT6A turboprop engine operators with hot section inspections, repairs and on-site field services.
This new program -- “PT6A FASTLANE™” -- includes but is not limited to, on-wing inspections by a certified StandardAero Field Service Representative (FSR), Service Center support and OEM approved repairs. The company chose the term FASTLANE because, in most cases, StandardAero can complete on-wing inspections and most repairs to put operators back in the air within three days (if booked 30 days in advance).
Primary engine models for the FASTLANE program include PT6A-41/-42/-60A/-114A/-135A. Dozens of other PT6A engine models may also apply for the FASTLANE program. With the 30-day advance provision for scheduling the services, StandardAero will guarantee a one-day turnaround time for inspection and two days for engine workscope repairs.
Operators are required to provide StandardAero with engine performance data one week before the scheduled service along with accurate engine logbook information with updated LCF data (times & cycles). In addition, customers’ aircraft must be available when StandardAero’s FSR/Technician arrives onsite along with providing access to proper hangar and support equipment. Certain other conditions/exclusions may apply.
“StandardAero has successfully applied its FASTLANE concept to several other engine models for the industry,” said Rob Higby, Global Vice President of Sales and Marketing for StandardAero Airlines & Fleets. “We’ve spent months designing this program for PT6A customers and we are ready to deliver our high quality services in an accelerated fashion.”
StandardAero is a Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A Designated Distributor and Overhaul and Facility (DDOF). With more than 25 years of reliable turboprop experience, the company provides options and recommendations that are tailored to specific operator needs. StandardAero’s facilities and infrastructure has been specifically designed for P&WC PT6A component repair and maintenance events with the goal of minimizing downtime and reducing operator costs.
