StandardAero has extended its established relationship with Sierra Nevada Corporation with the signing of a five-year agreement covering maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) support for the Pratt & Whitney PT6A and PW100 turboprop engines. StandardAero will support Sierra Nevada (SNC) from its Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) in Summerside, PEI, and its other global locations.

SNC is a world leader in command, control, computers, communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) solutions, with experience on over 200 different types of manned and unmanned platforms, including the Beechcraft King Air and Cessna Caravan. SNC has also partnered with Embraer to offer the A-29 Super Tucano for U.S. Department of Defense and international requirements. In addition, SNC provides aircraft design, modification and support services for a range of platforms, including the Dornier 328, supported via its subsidiary 328 Support Services GmbH.

“SNC is one of our most valued customers on the PT6A and PW100 engine families, and we are delighted to be able to support the company’s diverse international activities with our global network of overhaul facilities and service centres,” said Jason Johnson, VP, global sales and marketing for StandardAero Airlines & Fleets. “We look forward to extending our relationship with SNC to include Auxiliary Power Unit support services in the near future.”

StandardAero supports the global P&W PT6A operator community from four DOFs located in North America, Europe, Africa and Australasia, backed up by a global network of seven service centres and more than 20 dedicated mobile repair technicians. StandardAero is also a DOF for the P&W PW100/PW150A engine families, with overhaul facility locations in Summerside; Gonesse, France; and Seletar, Singapore, which are in turn supported by seven service centre locations across the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia.
