Asia Pacific Aerospace (APA) Pty Ltd, a leading service provider of small to medium gas turbine engine Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul services, and Rolls-Royce, a global company providing integrated power solutions for customers in civil and defence aerospace, marine and energy markets, announce that the two companies have signed a RR300 Authorized Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Center (AMROC) agreement.
The RR300 AMROC agreement provides aviation operators of the RR300 engine around the world access to the best maintenance and testing capabilities as well as access to rental engines, troubleshooting, field service and spares support services. The RR300 engine will be supported in APA's new purpose built Rolls-Royce M250 and RR300 AMROC facility, which is presently being commissioned at Eagle Farm, Brisbane Australia.
"Supporting the RR300 is very important to APA in expanding our relationship with Rolls-Royce and enhancing our position in the Australasia small to medium gas turbine engine MRO market," said Steve Mason, APA Chief Executive Officer. "It is a great day for APA. We have been supporting the Rolls-Royce M250 engine in region for over 20 years. The RR300 expands on our current capabilities for our team to continue delivering quality service to keep operators flying."
Rolls-Royce welcomed APA to the RR300 network of service providers.
"Building upon Rolls-Royce's M250 relationship with APA is a key step towards realizing enhanced support of the RR300 engine in the Australasia region," said Hubert Brown, Director of Helicopter Services for Rolls-Royce. "We are continually looking for ways to provide innovative and customer-focused service and we look forward to working with APA to assist and support RR300 operators."
