StandardAero has signed a contract to purchase EB Airfoils, a provider of aircraft engine fan blades, compressor blades and blades in Palm City, Florida. EB Airfoils, which operates from two facilities covering almost 20,000 square meters and has 50 employees, is one of the few companies in the world to have received OEM source approval or a source presentation to repair and overhaul these turbine engine components.
The private company’s resource approval portfolio includes the Pratt & Whitney, GE Aviation, CFM International and International Aero Engines platforms. EB Airfoils is in the process of receiving additional approvals through resource presentations.
