StandardAero’s business aviation unit inducted its 1,000th Honeywell HTF7000-series engine into its Augusta, Georgia facility, making it the first company to achieve this milestone in support of the engine series. The company also is the industry’s first and only OEM-authorized independent, heavy MRO provider for the engine model and claims to have performed more major events with the HTF7000 than any other company in the industry.
The engine powers several active business jet types, including the Bombardier Challenger 300/350; Embraer Legacy 450/500 and Praetor 500/600; Gulfstream G280; and Cessna Citation Longitude.
StandardAero has continued to invest its efforts to broaden HTF7000 services in the past three years. Such efforts include expanding StandardAero’s test cell capability and tools, as well as improving turnaround times. The company also owns a large HTF7000-series engine rental bank, enabling StandardAero mobile services teams to remove and replace the engine at a customer's site.
“Our record 1,000th engine milestone is a direct reflection of the enormous efforts of the talented and dedicated men and women at StandardAero,” said Chris Bodine, v-p and general manager for StandardAero Business Aviation’s Augusta facility.
