StandardAero subsidiary Associated Air Center (AAC) has completed the necessary modifications required for compliance with the FAA’s SFAR 88 Mandatory Airworthiness Requirements Directive (AD) on its ninth Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) equipped with DeCrane-Pats auxiliary-fuel-tank systems. “Associated Air Center’s MRO backlog capacity is already committed to complete these mandatory modifications on seven more BBJs scheduled for these modifications before the AD deadline of December 2009,” said Jack Lawless, president of AAC and COO of StandardAero. The FAA has approved the incorporation of the DeCrane-Pats Service Bulletin as an Alternate Means of Compliance for AD-2008-22-01.
