StandardAero has completed its first aftermarket installation of Aviation Partners Inc. (API) high-mach blended winglets on a Falcon 2000 large-cabin business jet at its facility in Springfield, Ill.
“We anticipate this will be the first of many winglet installations we will complete for Falcon 2000 operators,” said Scott Taylor, vp for business aviation. “The API winglet program extends our portfolio of available services for the Falcon family of aircraft. As a Honeywell-authorized service center for TFE and CFE engines, as well as having completion, paint and modifications capability, we are able to provide Falcon 2000 operators a complete in-service solution.”
StandardAero operates four shops across the United States, including Augusta, Ga., Springfield, Ill., Houston, Texas, and Los Angeles, Calif., with capabilities in Omaha, Neb. And Little Rock, Ark.; in addition to mobile service teams based in Long Island, N.Y., Boca Raton, Fla., Houston, Texas, Denver, Colo., Chicago, Ill., and Van Nuys, Calif. Each of StandardAero’s four main business aviation facilities are Dassault Falcon authorized service centers.
The new winglets add up to 260 nm in range, reduced emissions and enhanced resale value, according to company officials, who note the winglets are production standard on the new Falcon 2000LX.
