StandardAero has officially reopened the engine shop at its service center at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport (SPI) in Springfield, Ill.
“Customer feedback indicated there was a strong desire in re-establishing an engine shop in Springfield to support their need for ‘one-stop-shop’ capabilities,” said Scott Taylor, senior vice president, Business Aviation.
Due in part to its Garrett Aviation lineage, StandardAero is the largest independent provider of airframe, paint, avionics and modifications, as well as TFE731 heavy maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). At 265,000 square feet of production and support function floor space, Springfield is StandardAero’s largest business aviation shop and services a significant volume of TFE731-powered aircraft. Initially, the shop will be capable of providing major periodic inspections (MPIs) for TFE731 engines. The capabilities of the shop will be reassessed periodically with a possibility of adding other engine types and services based on customers’ needs, according to company officials.
