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.
To clarify the consolidation effort under way at Garrett/Piedmont Hawthorne/Associated, as reported in Tuesday’s AINalerts, a company spokesperson said that the Long Island, N.Y. and Columbus, Ohio facilities will be closed entirely within the next couple of months. The engine work performed at Long Island, as well as the engine work done at the company’s Springfield, Ill.
