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
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
"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.
