Standardaero awarded approvals by EASA and FAA

Two new design organization approvals (DOA) for engine and auxiliary power unit design and repair have been awarded to StandardAero by the EASA and the FAA.

The EASA awarded DOA to StandardAero’s Tilburg location in the Netherlands, allowing the facility to design and approve minor repairs to Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100 engine components. With DOA authorization, Tilburg can offer customers additional repairs that supplement the Pratt & Whitney Canada repair manuals. This allows Tilburg to repair parts with conditions not addressed in the repair manuals, and to tailor repair methods to customers’ specific part requirements. DOA authorization eliminates delays due to external approval requirements for minor repairs. Such repairs are released in conjunction with customer, OEM and EASA data as required to meet customer requirements.

The FAA awarded StandardAero Maryville of Maryville, Tenn., major repair organization design authorization approval. The facility is now authorized to approve major repairs to the Rolls-Royce AE3007 and AE2100; Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A, PW100 and PW600; General Electric CF34; Honeywell TFE731 and TPE331; and components and accessories. The authorization also includes Honeywell GTCP30-92, GTCP36-6, GTCP36-100, GTCP36-150, GTCP85-180 and 185, RE220 and Hamilton Sundstrand T62 and APS 500-series auxiliary power units.
