StandardAero, Silverhawk Conversions Sign STC Portfolio Agreement

Adds Re-Engining Services To StandardAero Portfolio

StandardAero and Silverhawk Conversions have reached an agreement to extend their Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) portfolios to each other’s organizations.

Under terms of this agreement, StandardAero will extend its services to operators of King Air C90 and E90 airframes with complete overhaul, repair and now, engine upgrade options. Providing an alternative to traditional overhaul, StandardAero will now be able to offer customers the option to upgrade their C90 and E90 airframes with new PT6A-135A engines removing the existing PT6A–20, -21 or –28 engines.

The PT6A-135A engines provide operators with a six percent decrease in specific fuel consumption and approximately 30 knots increase in airspeed over the older engines.

Previously, Silverhawk Conversions offered these engine upgrades exclusively through its Lincoln, NE facility since 2006. The partnership with StandardAero allows them to expand the reach of their customer base. To maintain the quality of the installations, StandardAero and Silverhawk will continue to do the conversions at their own facilities or with a StandardAero field service representative.

"This is an exciting go-forward approach for StandardAero," said StandardAero General Manager PT6A Business Unit, Manny Atwal. "We are very pleased to partner with Silverhawk Conversions as they demonstrate the same level of excellence to supporting customers as StandardAero. By combining our respective capabilities, we can offer operators more options and superior levels of service both during conversion and post-conversion."

StandardAero notes this partnership makes the company the only Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A designated overhaul facility that can offer customers both maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and engine upgrade options.
