StandardAero has signed a multi-year agreement with Island Aviation Services Limited (IASL) to provide support for the Pratt & Whitney (P&W) PT6A-27 and PW123 turboprops, the company announced at the Paris Air Show.
The engines power the fleets of Twin Otter and Dash 8 aircraft operated by Maldivian, the national airline of the Maldives. StandardAero will support IASL’s engines from its PT6A Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) in Brisbane, Australia, and from its PW100 DOFs in Summerside, Canada and Gonesse, France.
The agreement extends a long-running relationship between IASL and StandardAero, which has previously supported both the airline’s PT6A-powered Twin Otter fleet, as well as its PW100-powered Dash 8 fleet.
IASL looks forward to continuing its relationship with StandardAero, supporting maintenance on the PW100 and PT6A engines in our fleet,” said Mohamed Hassan, Head of Engineering at IASL.
“StandardAero is proud to be selected by its long-standing customer IASL for its future engine maintenance needs,” said Jason Johnson, Vice President – Global Sales & Marketing for StandardAero Airlines & Fleets. “We genuinely value the close relationship that our two teams have built over the years, through the support of Maldivian’s PT6A and PW100 powerplants, and look forward to many more years of serving the airline and its customers with reliable support.”
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 centers and over twenty dedicated mobile repair technicians. StandardAero is also a DOF for the P&W PW100/PW150A engine families, with overhaul facility locations in Summerside, PE, Canada, Gonesse, France and Seletar, Singapore, supported by seven service center locations across the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia.
