StandardAero Announces Expanded Engine/APU LRU and Engine Health Monitoring Service Offerings for Regional Aircraft
StandardAero expands its line replaceable unit (LRU) and engine health monitoring (EHM) service offerings for the Bombardier CRJ, Embraer E-Jet and other regional aircraft platforms. Its signature bundled engine and auxiliary power unit (APU) LRU offerings for the Bombardier CRJ 700/900/1000 and Embraer E-Jet 170/190 have now been expanded to include the CRJ 100 and 200 aircraft.
LRUs are an integral part of any engine/APU MRO event, and StandardAero has developed a one-stop shop LRU program providing economic and operational benefits to operators. Its LRU programs, which already provide support services to over 600 aircraft under contract, including repairs, exchanges, rotable inventory and on-site stock requirements, are custom-designed and offered directly to each customer.
The company has also been selected by Embraer as part of its Pool Management service, under which StandardAero also provides support for the GTCP36 and RE220 APUs. StandardAero is also an authorized overhaul provider for the CF34-3 and -8 turbofan engines.
“Providing our customers a simplified, consistent LRU service which improves their bottom line has always been our focus,” says Randy Mengel, vice president and general manager of StandardAero's Maryville site. “Our growing customer base is proof that this program provides benefits. Expanding this program to the CRJ 100/200 will allow operators of these aircraft to enjoy the improved and simplified support this program provides, with the addition of EHM services to our portfolio, further demonstrating our commitment to constantly raising the standard.”
Following its recent acquisition of Vector Aerospace, StandardAero now also offers EHM services for a range of engines, including the CF34, CFM56, PW100, PW150 and PT6 engine types. As an authorized analysis center, the company’s Gonesse facility provides affordable EHM and trending services, allowing operators to minimize unplanned downtime and cost. These services include troubleshooting, maintenance tracking and the development of customized maintenance programs based on operating environment and utilization.
“This preventative maintenance capability provides operators the peace of mind that the key characteristics of their engines’ health is being actively monitored by our team of service engineering experts 24/7,” says Peter Turner, president of the StandardAero Airlines and Fleets division. “Through these services, we are already providing operators of approximately 400 aircraft proactive recommendations on maintenance to maximize and optimize the operational usefulness of their engines and hence aircraft, while minimizing maintenance expenses.”
