Feb.2, 2009 Tempe, AZ  – StandardAero has received two new Design
Organization Approvals (DOA) for engine and auxiliary power unit design
and repair from the European Aviation Safety Administration (EASA) and
the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
 
On October 21, 2008, EASA awarded StandardAero’s Tilburg location in
the Netherlands Design Organization Approval allowing Tilburg to design
and approve minor repairs to Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100 engine
components.
 
With DOA authorization, Tilburg may offer customers additional repairs
that supplement the Pratt & Whitney Canada repair manuals. This
allows Tilburg to repair parts with conditions not addressed in the
repair manuals, and to tailor repair methods to customer’s specific
part requirements. DOA authorization eliminates delays due to external
approval requirements for minor repairs.  Such repairs are released in
conjunction with customer, OEM, and EASA data as required to meet
customer requirements.
 
On December 19, 2008, the FAA awarded StandardAero Maryville located in
Maryville, Tennessee, Major Repair Organization Design Authorization
(MRA-ODA) approval. This approval authorizes Maryville to approve major
repairs to Rolls Royce AE3007 and AE2100, Pratt & Whitney PT6A,
PW100, and PW600, General Electric CF34, Honeywell TFE731 and TPE331
series engines, components, and accessories. The authorization also
includes Honeywell GTCP30-92, GTCP36-6, GTCP36-100, GTCP36-150,
GTCP85-180 and 185, RE220 and Hamilton Sundstrand T62 and APS 500
series Auxiliary Power Units.
 
Maryville is one of the first engine maintenance, repair and overhaul
companies to achieve authorization under the new FAA-ODA requirements.
With ODA approval, Maryville may offer customers additional repairs to
supplement the OEM manuals and reduce material cost. Such repairs are
released in conjunction with customer, OEM, and FAA data as required to
meet customer requirements.
 
“StandardAero is committed to serving our customers by providing
component repair alternatives,” said Wayne Thomas, StandardAero Chief
Engineer for Engine Repair and Overhaul. “Our on-site engineers are
approved to the highest standards and supported by our corporate
engineering resources to ensure we make the best component
repair-or-replace decisions to serve our customers”.
 
StandardAero also has a Design Approval Organization (DAO) in Winnipeg,
Canada, and engine FAA Design Engineering Representatives on site at
the Component Services facility in Cincinnati, Ohio.
