StandardAero’s overhaul facility celebrates its 1,500th PT6A Turboprop delivery

StandardAero’s world-class engine MRO facility in Gonesse, France, has recently celebrated the delivery of its 1,500th Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A turboprop engine.

The Gonesse facility, which is located mid-way between Le Bourget and Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, is a Pratt & Whitney Canada Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) for both the PT6A and the larger PW100 turboprop engine.

The Gonesse facility was recently re-selected by Daher as the PT6A engine maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services provider for TBM very fast turboprop aircraft based in Europe, StandardAero having originally been selected by Daher in 2016.

This agreement includes engine support for the fleet of TBM 700 aircraft operated by the French Ministry of Defense and managed by Daher under a Full Operational Support agreement.

“The team of MRO specialists at StandardAero Gonesse is proud to reach this milestone 1,500th engine, reflecting our long-standing support of PT6A operators across Europe and beyond,” said Laurent Cluzel, general manager of StandardAero’s Gonesse facility.  “We have an extensive heritage of supporting the PT6A and PW100 turboprops at Gonesse, serving military, governmental and civilian operators, and look forward to extending our PT6A capabilities with the introduction of a dedicated service centre later this year.”
