SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – StandardAero has launched a new, customized accelerated response program to support PT6A turboprop engine operators with hot section inspections, repairs and on-site field services.
The new program — PT6A FASTLANE — includes on-wing inspections by a field service representative (FSR), service center support and OEM approved repairs.
Company officials note that it can complete on-wing inspections and most repairs to put operators back in the air within three days (if booked 30 days in advance). With the 30-day advance provision for scheduling, StandardAero will guarantee a one-day turnaround time for inspection and two days for engine workscope repairs.
Primary engine models for the program include PT6A-41/-42/-60A/-114A/-135A. Dozens of other PT6A engine models may also apply for the program, company officials noted.
Operators are required to provide StandardAero with engine performance data one week before the scheduled service, along with accurate engine logbook information with updated LCF data (times & cycles).
In addition, customers’ aircraft must be available when StandardAero’s technician arrives onsite, along with providing access to proper hangar and support equipment, company officials added.
