Global Jet Capital names StandardAero as a prefered partner for ADS-B upgrade


Global Jet Capital, a global leader in financial solutions for business aircraft, has chosen a leading aircraft service provider StandardAero as its preferred partner for clients who need to ensure their aircraft are compliant with ADS-B.

ADS-B is a FAA mandate that aircraft must comply with in-order to fly in most US airspace, and it comes into force December 31 2019.  It’s a new way for Air Traffic Control to manage traffic and upgrade the country’s radar systems with satellite and ground based data for safer, more reliable and faster information.

Global Jet Capital chose StandardAero because of its impressive reputation and experience in servicing aircraft, and its convenient locations.  Under the agreement, clients will receive discounted pricing on ADS-B projects, and further savings if this is coupled with other projects or maintenance.

Jim Noonan, Senior Managing Director, Global Jet Capital said: “StandardAero has completed over 500 ADS-B installations and has maintained thousands of aircraft.  With US sites in Augusta, Georgia; Springfield, Illinois; and Houston Texas, it also offers great convenience for US based clients.

Brian Campbell, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, StandardAero said: “Global Jet Capital has one of the largest fleets of business aircraft in the world, so we are delighted to be chosen as one of their preferred partners for ADS-B projects.  “Backlog is strong, and our MRO sites and schedules are filling-up quickly but Global Jet Capital clients who need their aircraft to be ADS-B compliant can now rest assured that priority scheduling with StandardAero will ensure they meet the mandate deadline.”
