ATLANTA–U.S. MRO giant StandardAero has signed an agreement with Sky Regional Airlines to support Pratt & Whitney Canada-manufactured APS2300 auxiliary power units (APUs) on Embraer 175 regional aircraft.
The airline, headquartered in Mississauga, Ontatio in Canada, operates flights to locations in Canada and the U.S. under the banner of its partner airline Air Canada Express. Its fleet is comprised of 25 of the Brazilian-made 175 aircraft.
Repairs will be carried out at StandardAero’s repair center in Maryville, Tennessee, which is an OEM-approved facility for the APS2300. The company also holds approvals for Honeywell APUs including GTCP36 and RE220 models. In January this year, StandardAero completed its 10,000th APU repair in Maryville.
According to StandardAero, having this approval allows it to give customers full access to OEM technical support and documentation, complete manufacturer warranty processing, total access to rental bank assets, component repair and LRU capabilities, and coordinated repair development with OEM authorization.
When contacted by Aviation Week, StandardAero didn’t disclose the length or value of the multi-year agreement.
