May 19, 2009 – Having recently completed certification of their state-of-the-art, high-mach blended winglets for the Falcon 2000 large-cabin business jet, Aviation Partners Inc. (API) has appointed StandardAero as its first authorized installer for the new winglets.  API has thus far seen a significant interest from Falcon 2000 operators for the new winglets, which add up to 260 nm in range, reduced emissions and enhanced resale value.  The winglets are also production standard on the new Falcon 2000LX.
 
StandardAero operates four shops across the United States, including Augusta, Ga., Springfield, Ill., Houston, Tex., and Los Angeles, Calif., in addition to mobile service teams based in Long Island, N.Y., Boca Raton, Fla., Houston, Tex., Denver, Co., Chicago, Ill. and Van Nuys, Calif.  All of StandardAero’s facilities are factory-authorized service centers. 
 
“We are excited about adding the API Falcon 2000 winglet program to our capabilities,” said StandardAero Senior Vice President for Business Aviation, Harvey Ticlo. “We are the largest Falcon authorized service center by volume, and offer complete MRO for Falcon aircraft.  We are also Honeywell-authorized service centers and have completion, paint and modifications capability, which allows us to provide Falcon 2000 operators a complete in-service solution.  The addition of API winglets further expands our portfolio of available service,” Ticlo added.
