Winnipeg’s Aero Recip Receives Endorsement
In a recently released announcement, U.S.-base Hartzell Engine Technologies says they have named Aero Recip (Canada) Ltd. as their first Canada-based maintenance and repair shop to earn designation as one of their Recommended Service Facilities (RSF). Together with an Oklahoma-based company, Aero Recip are the only two RSFs for AeroForce turbochargers.
“We are very proud to welcome our friends at Aero Recip (Canada) as the first Recommended Service Facility approved in Canada to provide inspections and maintenance on AeroForce turbocharger systems,” said Hartzell Engine Technologies president Keith Bagley. “We introduced our Recommended Service Facilities program in 2014 to give aircraft owner /operators who fly with our equipment a pre-approved network of shops that have the training, tools, and commitment to quality necessary to ensure that these customers get the highest level of repair and overhaul services for their units.”
Bagley made the point that being designated as an RSP for Hartzell is more than just signing an agreement. “RSF network shops must agree to adhere to our set of rigorous guidelines,” he said. “For example, they will be regularly audited, they have agreed to follow our manuals and will maintain the proper facilities with approved tools and equipment.” Bagley went on to add “In addition, they will send their technicians to our facility for ongoing training, and they have agreed they will only use genuine Hartzell/AeroForce replacement parts.”
Aero Recip, founded in 1988, is the largest piston engine and accessory overhaul shop in Canada specializing in Continental and Lycoming horizontally opposed and Pratt & Whitney radial engines.
Hartzell Engine Technologies is a sister company to Hartzell Propeller. It is a leading OEM supplier of a number of aviation products, including Janitrol Aero, AeroForce, Plane-Power, Sky-Tec and Fuelcraft brands.
