StandardAero Adds More F-16 Engine Work


StandardAero – whose large location at Port San Antonio just celebrated twenty years providing top-tier sustainment services for aircraft engines operated around the world  -- has added overhaul of the Egyptian Air Force’s F-16 Falcon fleet’s General Electric F110-100 engines to its rapidly growing portfolio.

This long-term project, known as the Pacer Pharaoh Program, is a collaboration between StandardAero, the U.S. Air Force, Defense Logistics Agency, the Egyptian Air Force and GE Aviation.

StandardAero San Antonio will be overhauling F110-100 engines.

The company is one of the world’s leading independent providers of support services for commercial and military aircraft and employs hundreds of workers at the Port.

Pacer Pharaoh is just the latest among many recent milestones that underscore StandardAero’s significant growth at its Port site, which spans over 800,000 square feet of state-of-the art workshops, research labs and testing facilities.

StandardAero’s campus at the Port includes a highly specialized array of facilities to test commercial and military aircraft engines, including those of the new F110-100 project.

In early 2018, the company announced an agreement with Rolls-Royce to provide service engines that power Boeing 757 aircraft, which are flown by many of the world’s major airlines. This news came days after StandardAero announced the continuation of a major military aircraft support program at its Port site. The U.S. Air Force awarded the company a five-year extension of the support it provides to the T56 engine line, which powers C-130H military cargo aircraft.

F110 engines are one of many engines that StandardAero supports.

Shortly thereafter, StandardAero announced a 20-year agreement with Rolls-Royce to maintain additional military aircraft engine models, including the AE2100 (C-130J), T56 Series IV (E-2C / E-2D), and the AE1107 (V-22), thus expanding the firm’s military workload of aircraft engines operated by the U.S. and allied military forces.
