This approval enables StandardAero to provide RB211-535 MRO support to Chinese operators of the Boeing 757, who collectively fly approximately 70 aircraft, or almost 20% of the in-service RB211-535 fleet.

StandardAero entered into a life-of-type maintenance services partnership with Rolls-Royce on the RB211-535 in 2018, under which StandardAero is fully committed to support customers worldwide from its 810,000 sq. ft. facility in San Antonio for the life of the programme. The facility inducted its first customer engine in April 2019, finalising test cell certification in November 2020 and is currently accepting bookings for 2024 induction slots.

“Receipt of CAAC approval is a key milestone for StandardAero, allowing us to support the MRO needs of RB211-535 operators in China,” said Janice Ho, Airline Sales Director – Asia for StandardAero Airlines & Fleets.  

“The RB211-powered Boeing 757 remains extremely popular with cargo operators in China, representing the second largest market for the type worldwide. StandardAero looks forward to extending our existing relationships with operators in China and to servicing the needs of new customers.”

StandardAero provides comprehensive RB211-535 support services to Boeing 757 operators worldwide, its capabilities including extensive component repair and overhaul (CR&O) offerings, used service material (USM) management, workscope optimisation, plus field support services provided to operators airside in order to address and avoid AOG situations.

Generating 40,100 to 43,100 pounds of thrust, the RB211-535 powers the Boeing 757, which is flown by many of the world’s major airlines, with half of the fleet in-service in North America. The RB211-535 powers nearly 60% of all Boeing 757s delivered and is expected to remain in commercial service until the year 2040, thanks in large part to the 757’s popularity with cargo airline operators.
