StandardAero Components has renewed its Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) certification and obtained a new authorization from Indonesia’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation. StandardAero Components currently holds FAA, EASA and CAAC 145 certification for GE, CFM, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce and Honeywell powerplants.

The recertification by CAAC expands StandardAero’s support capabilities with an additional 1,000 new part numbers beyond the 2,000 parts previously certified. The recent certifications extend the company’s ability to support repair capabilities across the rapidly growing Asian region.

“This is another milestone in the fulfillment of our global strategy of providing a comprehensive suite of repair services, development and overhaul capabilities throughout a long line of aircraft components and engine models,” said Rick Stine, senior vice president of StandardAero Components. “These certifications open us up to tremendous business opportunities in emerging markets with significant growth potential, both for commercial and military applications.”

Jack Lane, director of sales for StandardAero Components, told AIN that all of StandardAero’s aircraft component R&O work is sent to the company’s Cincinnati facility.
