ST Aerospace affiliate VT San Antonio Aerospace (VT SAA) is performing heavy maintenance checks on Air Canada Boeing 787s, becoming the first Americas-based MRO provider to do the work on Boeing’s newest widebody. The first Air Canada 787 was inducted in VT SAA’s San Antonio, Texas, hangar in May and redelivered within 18 days, ST Aerospace said. The work is part of a “long-term agreement” to perform 787 C1 checks for Air Canada.
ST Aerospace, which provides both 787 base and line maintenance at its Singapore facility, said it set up a task force to ensure its San Antonio hangar was ready for the Air Canada work. The U.S.-based airframe capabilities further broaden ST Aerospace’s extensive 787 aftermarket support offerings.
ST Aerospace is a UTC Aerospace Systems-licensed MRO provider for nacelle, air management, power generation and electrical system components, and can provide on-wing support for 787 GE GEnx engines. A Boeing-approved MRO center, ST Aerospace also supports more than 450 787 flight-control system part numbers.
