StandardAero has entered into an exclusive teaming agreement with GDC Middle East (GDC ME) and Horizon Shield Corporation of Riyadh to provide MRO services, engineering support and design services for military aircraft operators in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.


The three-year teaming agreement will initially cover government-owned rotorcraft for the Saudi Navy, Air Force and Land Forces.

Commenting on the teaming agreement, Simon Jones, President of StandardAero/Vector Global Services, said: “Saudi Vision 2030 is built around three themes: a vibrant society, a thriving economy and an ambitious nation. Vector is extremely pleased to extend its decades-long history of providing reliable aviation services to Saudi Arabia. By teaming with leading high quality service providers such as GDC ME and Horizon, we are confident of achieving incremental growth for all three firms while also helping to meet the ambitious goals of Saudi Vision 2030.”

Fawaz Alsharabi, GDC Middle East’s CEO, commented: “We are very glad to team up with StandardAero and Horizon Shield, as we are planning to offer more aerospace and engineering services to our local customers and thus meet our main objectives in line with Saudi Vision 2030 vision, namely diversifying our national economy, pursuing the transfer of technology into the Kingdom, and generating local job opportunities.”
