Hyannis, Mass.-based Cape Air has selected StandardAero to provide engine support services for its fleet of Cessna Caravan aircraft. Under the agreement, StandardAero will provide Cape Air with Pratt & Whitney PT6A turboprop engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services from its network of overhaul facilities and service centers in North America.
“Cape Air looks forward to continuing its successful relationship with StandardAero, which spans back to the former Vector Aerospace entity. We look forward to receiving the same high standards of service from StandardAero on the PT6A engine that we have experienced from the company on the PW100 platform in support of our ATR 42 fleet over the past 15 years,” says Jim Goddard, senior vice president with Cape Air.
“StandardAero is delighted to strengthen its long-standing support partnership with Cape Air through this new agreement,” said Jason Johnson, vice president – Sales & Marketing for StandardAero’s Airline & Fleets business unit. “Having provided PW100 MRO services to the airline for many years, we are honored to now be entrusted with support for Cape Air’s PT6A engine fleet, and look forward to providing the airline with safe and reliable support for years to come.”
StandardAero is the world’s largest independent Pratt & Whitney authorized PT6A Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) with distribution rights on certain engine models. The company supports the global PT6A operator community from four DOFs located in North America, Europe, Africa and Australasia, backed up by a global network of seven service centers and over twenty dedicated mobile repair technicians.
