StandardAero’s engine overhaul facility in Summerside, PEI, Canada finished 2019 on a high, inducting over 1,000 Pratt & Whitney PW100, PT6A and JT15D engines during the course of the year.
This record figure was achieved following the recent expansion to the facility, StandardAero’s commercial turboprop engine MRO Center of Excellence, which saw the site expand its shop floor area to over 226,000 sq. ft of leased space. The facility, located at the Summerside airport in Slemon Park, also grew its workforce to approximately 500 employees as a result of the recent expansion.
The 1,000th engine to be inducted was a PW121 for long-standing regional airline customer Air Creebec, in support of the airline’s fleet of de Havilland Canada Dash 8 turboprop aircraft. Air Creebec is based in Val-d’Or, Quebec, and operates regularly scheduled flights, charter and freight services to 16 destinations in Quebec and Ontario.Email Post to a Friend
