StandardAero has been selected by the Brazilian Air Force ( FAB) to provide comprehensive MRO services for the Rolls-Royce AE 3007 engines powering its fleet of Embraer ERJ-145 aircraft.

Under the exclusive multi-year agreement, StandardAero will provide MRO services for FAB’s AE 3007A equipped fleet from its Maryville, TN location, which is an OEM-approved Authorized Maintenance Center (AMC) for the AE 3007 family of engines. StandardAero’s 154,000 sq. ft. Maryville facility has supported the AE 3007 since 1997, and today supports more AE 3007 engines than any other company worldwide.

The Brazilian Air Force utilized the locally made ERJ-145 for a number of different operational platforms, including liaison transport (C-99A) and VIP transport (VC-99A/B/C).

“StandardAero is proud to have been entrusted by the Brazilian Air Force with support for its fleet of AE 3007 engines,” said Lewis Prebble, President of StandardAero’s Airlines & Fleets division. “Our Maryville facility has provided the FAB with transactional AE 3007 support for several years and this new multi-year contract is an endorsement of the level of quality and service provided by the team there.”

StandardAero is the only U.S.-based AE 3007 AMC, with full approval for all variants including the AE 3007A (ERJ-145 family), AE 3007 (Citation X) and the AE 3007H (supporting the U.S. Government’s Global Hawk family). The company has extensive in-house repair capabilities for the engine, which enables it to provide customers with industry leading turn-times, lower engine operating costs and world-class customer support.

StandardAero supports all three members of the Rolls-Royce AE engine family: the Maryville facility also services the AE 1107 turboshaft engine, which powers the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft, and in conjunction with the company’s Winnipeg, MB facility, supports the AE 2100 turboprop, which powers the Leonardo C-27 Spartan, the Lockheed Martin C-130 J / LM-100J Super Hercules and the Saab 2000 regional aircraft. In addition, the Maryville facility also supports the MT7 marine gas turbine for the U.S. Government, which powers the Textron LCAC 100-class-Ship-to-Shore Connector (SSC).

StandardAero supports operators from across Brazil from its Regional Turbine Center (RTC) in Belo Horizonte, MG, which services a range of engine and APU platforms including the Honeywell TFE731, HTF7000 and GTCP 36, plus the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A, PW100, PW500 and JT15D.
