_sa_sig_1_cymkApril 1, 2008, Winnipeg – Standard Aero has completed the integration
of the legacy Landmark Aviation maintenance facilities and launched a
new corporate identity, signifying that the combined companies are now
operating as one unified, entity with more than 4,000 employees in the
US, Canada, Europe and Asia and $1.4 billion a year in sales.
 

The new Standard Aero—the five legacy Landmark Aviation maintenance
facilities and the seven legacy Standard Aero facilities combined—was
created when Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) purchased Standard Aero
and Landmark Aviation from the Carlyle Group in July 2007, creating a
world-class MRO organization with expertise across numerous aviation
sectors and business relationships in the U.S. and around the
world. (DAE sold the FBOs and the Landmark name to GTCR, Encore FBO and
Platform Partners in a transaction that closed at the end of February,
2008.)

“Less than nine months after the purchase, the integration of all 12
MRO facilities is complete and we are launching the new Standard Aero,
a company with deep MRO experience and exceptional relationships across
the aviation industry that is well-positioned to take advantage of
growth opportunities here and abroad,” said Standard Aero President and
CEO Paul Soubry. “Standard Aero has a strategic, long-term focus with
an experienced industry management team. We are fostering a cohesive,
aligned organization through a common culture, enabling and empowering
our businesses to build on a reputation for quality and customer
service.”
