 - October 12, 2010, 1:57 PM

StandardAero (Booth No. 7601) has reopened its TFE731 heavy maintenance, repair and overhaul operation at its 265,000-sq-ft production and support ­facility in Springfield, Ill. The shop will initially be capable of ­providing major periodic inspections (MPIs) for Honeywell TFE731s but shop ­capabilities will be reassessed periodically for the possible addition of other engine types and services. 

In the past year the company has upgraded customer offices at all its sites and also invested $500,000 in the Springfield facility by moving the TFE731 MPI shop back and improving the facility's appearance by painting hangars and floors.
