The parts manufacturing authority allows StandardAero to build and resell the wiring harness needed to install the Primus Elite

StandardAero Business
Aviation announced recently that it has received parts manufacturing authority
(PMA) for the Falcon 900C/EX Primus Elite Avionics upgrade programme. The PMA
authorises StandardAero to build and resell the wiring harness needed to
install Primus Elite. StandardAero is currently the only MRO provider that has
completed Primus Elite installations for F900C/EX. With the additional PMA
authority for the wiring harness StandardAero can pre-built and test harnesses
prior to aircraft induction, thus reducing downtime and cost to the customer.

“Today’s announcement is of strategic
importance to StandardAero’s industry leadership and provides a huge benefit to
our customers in both cost and convenience,” said Jeremy Thomas, avionics
product director, StandardAero Business Aviation. “This capability allows us to
further optimize our process and reduce downtime for owners that are upgrading
their Falcon 900 flight decks to Honeywell’s Primus Elite displays. In
addition, we are able to provide our customers with a level of expertise not
available elsewhere due to our unique position as the only independent MRO
provider that has completed installation of this avionics upgrade.”

StandardAero is authorised to perform a full
range of avionics modifications and upgrades at any of its four MRO facilities
in Springfield, Augusta,
Los Angeles and Houston. The company was the first to install
the F900C/EX Primus Elite upgrade in March 2011 and owns the STC.
