StandardAero was recently selected by PassionAir, a Ghana-based airline, to provide a tailored package of engine services for its fleet of Q400 regional turboprop aircraft. Under the multi-year contract, StandardAero will provide maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for PassionAir’s Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW150A turboprop engines from its designated overhaul facility (DOF) in Seletar, Singapore.
The contract will also authorize StandardAero to provide PassionAir with a range of rental engine, engineering and engine condition trend monitoring (ECTM) support services. StandardAero is uniquely placed to offer ECTM analysis expertise as both a P&WC designated overhaul facility (DOF) and a CAMP Systems designated analysis center (DAC).
Commenting on the agreement, Charles Richardson, director of maintenance for PassionAir, said: “After evaluating prospective service providers on our shortlist, we are happy to engage StandardAero as the engine maintenance provider for our Q400 fleet. We found the engine care package offered to be comprehensive and competitive, and it is my belief and hope that we will experience complete satisfaction with the service and support that we anticipate to receive from them.”
Peter Turner, president of airlines and fleets for StandardAero, added: “We are pleased to add PassionAir to the list of Ghanaian operators supported by StandardAero. PassionAir joins a growing list of customers who benefit from service excellence provided by our start-of-the-art facility in Singapore, backed up by our extensive engineering and ECTM capabilities. We look forward to meeting and exceeding the airline’s expectations for on-time support over the coming years.”
