Oct. 6, 2008, Orlando, Fla. – StandardAero and Shadin Avionics have agreed to jointly market a next generation electronic engine monitoring system for the PT6A turbine engine. The Shadin Avionics ETM-XL is an electronic trend sampling and exceedance monitoring system recording flight duration, engine cycles, trends and exceedances set by predetermined engine limits.

 Co-branded by StandardAero and Shadin Avionics, the ETM-XL records data continuously allowing operators to closely monitor their engines and make more informed maintenance and inflight operation decisions.  This contributes to enhancing flight safety, lowering maintenance costs through early detection, and reducing down time as well as increasing the resale value of the aircraft. Equipment will be available for installation at the end of the first quarter of 2009.

 “As the new StandardAero expands beyond turbine-engine MRO, our pursuit of advanced engineering concepts for engine reliability and forecasting capabilities have opened up opportunities such as this partnership with Shadin Avionics,” said StandardAero President and CEO, Rob Mionis.

 StandardAero is the only Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A designated overhaul facility that can offer customers both maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and engine upgrade options.
