While the eyes of the maintenance world were riveted to the MRO Europe exhibition in October, agreements were still being signed in the rest of the world. This is true for StandardAero, which announced on 15th October that it had just signed a multi-year contract with Silver Airways, the airline with whom ATR returned to the United States this year. Under this contract, the American MRO company will be providing support for the Pratt & Whitney PW127M engines which power the regional airline's ATR 42s and 72-600s.

StandardAero will be providing responsive overhaul-level support, thanks to its Canadian centre at Summerside (Prince Edward Island). Lighter work will be provided by its network of service centres in North America and its mobile repair teams (MRT). Finally, this support will be completed by engine condition trend monitoring (ECTM) services, with real-time recommendations to optimise the fleet's operational availability.

Silver Airways began operations on its first ATR 42-600 last April from its Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood base. Since then, it has taken charge of three other aircraft and should receive another one by the end of the year. It has also received a first 72-600 and is expecting at least another two before 2020.

Remember that Silver Airways committed in 2017 to twenty ATR 42-600s with 42 to 46 seats, with the possibility of going up to fifty aircraft. In the meantime it has converted a certain number of these planes into 70-seat 72-600s. While this is a leasing operation from Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC) rather than a direct order, this commitment has still enabled new ATRs to return to the United States for the first time since 1995.
