Rolls-Royce Expands In Indianapolis

New North American Headquarters Opens In Indy

Rolls-Royce formally opened its new North American headquarters for On-Wing Care Thursday. It is the latest facility to open in a global Rolls-Royce network of aviation repair and overhaul service centers. Located at the Indianapolis International Airport, the state-of-the-art facility represents US$1 million of company investment and is the sixth Rolls-Royce facility to be opened in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The 14,000 sq. ft. hangar and 11,000 sq. ft. shop provides line maintenance as well as full support for all Rolls-Royce corporate & regional aircraft engines.  It will also service the Trent series engines, including the Trent 1000 (pictured below) which will power the Boeing 787. The facility recently received the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Diamond Award in recognition of the level of high-quality service the center provides.

The new state-of-the-art center is capable of servicing more than 100 engines a year. Aircraft operators in the region will benefit from rapid response, minimized impact to fleet schedules, reduced costs and critical 24/7 specialist line support.

The facility also provides full-service customer support, including aircraft operations support and general aircraft servicing and handling, with access to a customer lounge and business center amenities.

Speaking at the Opening Ceremony, Marc Drew, Head of On-Wing Care, Gas Turbine Services, Rolls-Royce plc, said, “The Rolls-Royce On-Wing care network ensures the highest-level of service in locations that are convenient to our customers. On-Wing Care rapid response services maximize aircraft engine operational availability thereby minimizing potential impact to customer fleet schedules.”
