StandardAero Component Services, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, has shipped its first GE90-115 engine fan case module (FCM) unit for one of its airline customers. The GE90-115 FCM is one of the largest aircraft engine components in the industry and the GE90-115 is one of the world’s largest jet engines, powering Boeing 777 aircraft.
An appointed team from StandardAero visited the customer’s European facilities in May of this year to review the repair process of similar FCMs. After the review, the team of technicians returned to Cincinnati to design, build and order all tooling and fixtures needed to support the repair process. The team then worked with the local FAA office to add the module repair work scope to StandardAero’s Cincinnati capability list. StandardAero then performed 100% of all the disassembly, inspections, repairs and assembly and shipped its first GE90-115 FCM 15 days ahead of the customer-requested date.
