Martin Aviation Signs Three-Year Service Agreement to Become StandardAero’s Newest PT6A Partner

StandardAero and Martin Aviation sign a three-year Authorized Service Center agreement for PT6A engine services at the 2017 NBAA-BACE event in Las Vegas, NV.  The agreement provides operators of King Air, Pilatus, Cessna Caravan, Cheyenne and TBM aircraft the advantage of a one-stop solution for both engine and airframe services.

Under the agreement, StandardAero and Martin will work together to perform PT6A engine removal and installations, line maintenance, hot section inspections, engine overhauls and heavy maintenance. Certain engine services will be available at Martin Aviation’s Santa Ana International Airport (SNA) while heavy maintenance and engine overhauls will be available at StandardAero’s Winnipeg, Canada, facilities. 

Martin Aviation has been offering aircraft maintenance services to the greater Orange County (KSNA), CA, area for more than 90 years. The company provides broad expertise through its technical team and works on a variety of airframes.  

“By teaming with an exceptional partner like Martin Aviation, we can offer more competitive services and a single point of contact to focus on the needs of our customers,” says Todd Vanderhyde, director of Sales for StandardAero.

“One of the most rewarding aspects of providing excellent maintenance services at Martin Aviation is the relationships we build and maintain with our customers and vendors. With this new service partnership with Standard Aero, we are now able to provide our valued customers with even more quality solutions to their PT-6 engine need,” says Mark Foster, president of Martin Aviation.
