COVER STORY

diagnostics. There will also be higher
technology data gathering and monitoring
methods, along with more data analysis
capabilities to perform more predictive
engine maintenance. " This will mean
that MROs will need to keep up with
OEM technology advances and provide
the appropriate tooling and training to
adapt to the advancements, " explained
Brian Hughes, vice president of sales and
marketing for StandardAero's Helicopters
business unit. " For now though, most of
our engine authorizations are for more
mature helicopter engine models and the
nature of the maintenance cycles and MRO
techniques for these platforms will continue to be driven by flying hours and the
rugged environmental operations where
helicopters tend to fly. "
Hughes said StandardAero's Helicopter
business experienced some holds last year,
but business seems to be returning slowly
in 2021. He pointed to a solid Military

business, with no significant changes to
government operating tempo both in the
U.S. and globally.
Helicopter flying has been down in certain segments and steady in others since
the first quarter of 2020. " The segments that
have been down ... tourism, utility work,
private charter etc., are what have affected
us, " he noted. " Overall though, I think we
have managed through the uncertainties
as best as we can. "
The worldwide health and economic disruptions are not yet behind us, said Hughes.
First and foremost, he says the company
must continue to maintain its attention to
providing a safe work environment for its
employees, customers and communities.
" At the same time, " he notes, " we are working to continue to deliver the highest quality service levels while also sustaining our
standard operational metrics and processes
to drive efficiency and be ready to address
the growth when the industry rebounds. "
