StandardAero Business Aviation has announced its Fastlane program for operators of Honeywell TFE731-powered aircraft. Under the program, business jet operators can have guaranteed completion of a core-zone inspection in 14 days or less. Industry averages currently range from 30 to 40 days, according to StandardAero (Stand 671).
Fastlane is a strategic approach to engine MRO that correlates maintenance turnaround times with comprehensive fleet operating costs. StandardAero said that saving the cost of removal and reinstallation of one engine for a Hawker 800XP represents savings of some $8,000, plus around $600 in materials, per engine.
