StandardAero Named TruEngine Provider for CFM56 and CF34
In its continued partnership with GE, StandardAero signed two license agreements to become an independent TruEngine authorized maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) provider for CF34 and CFM56 engines. According to StandardAero, it will be the first independent TruEngine-authorized MRO provider for CF34s and the second for CFM56s. Under this new agreement, CFM56 or CF34 engines overhauled by Standard Aero are eligible for TruEngine status, allowing the engine serial numbers to be included in a database made available to industry appraisers and potential buyers. “Over the past several years, StandardAero has made significant investments in its partnership with GE,” said Rob Cords, senior v-p of airlines and fleets for StandardAero. Last year, GE Aviation and StandardAero received the Canadian American Business Council Achievement Award for their collaboration on the GE Aviation engine testing, research and development center (TRDC) in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The $50 million TRDC opened in February 2012 and capped off a 12-month developmental partnership launched between the two companies one year earlier.
