Company Overview:

StandardAero’s Components business, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, is an OEM-aligned provider of component repair and overhaul services for the U.S. military and commercial aviation industries. StandardAero Components is a state-of-the-art gas turbine parts, LRU and airframe repair and engineering facility, offering full tool design and fabrication capabilities, components part restoration and a comprehensive suite of welding techniques and NDT capabilities. 


StandardAero Components holds FAA, EASA, Indonesia’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation and CAAC 145 certifications across a broad range of platforms, including CFM56, CF6, CF34, GE90, V2500, PW4000, a variety of Honeywell APU and propulsion engines and industrial LM2500, LM5000, LM6000 models.  Our master craftsmanship, high quality and on-time delivery provide customers with a one-stop service partner for component repair and development.


StandardAero Components became a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) on February 1, 2013.  The benefits to customers include faster customs clearance for parts coming from outside of the United States, a savings in having to manage a broker in the United States and an overall better customer experience with reduced transit time to our facility.  If a part usually takes 2-7 days to clear customs and get delivered to a supplier in the United States, the part will now consistently clear customs as it passes through our FTZ two days after you ship the part from your facility.
