StandardAero will once again serve as the U.S. Navy’s Rolls-Royce T56 engine maintenance depot for 2017, the third consecutive year it will fulfil this role. The maintenance work will be performed at StandardAero’s engine facilities located at Port San Antonio, Texas and Winnipeg, Canada.
The maintenance is provided for the U.S. Navy’s engines that power its fleet of P-3, C-130 and C-2 aircraft. StandardAero has also performed T56 engine maintenance for the U.S. Air Force since 1999.
“The U.S. Navy and StandardAero have forged a strong working relationship,” said Terry Hastman, vice president & general manager of StandardAero’s Defense Services San Antonio business unit.
