Standard Aero Singapore has reached an agreement to support Arriel 1 and Arriel 2 engines for Turbomeca Asia Pacific in the Asia-Pacific region. The company has expanded its facility to accommodate the increased workload and has been equipped with the special tooling and material-handling equipment.

The agreement renews and expands a previous agreement with Turbomeca Asia for Level 3 support for the Arriel 1 and Arriel 2, in place since 2006. Standard Aero Singapore has been providing field service for Turbomeca Asia Pacific since 2006.
