Bombardier Aerospace Regional Aircraft has signed an agreement at Asian Aerospace for engine repair, overhaul and maintenance services with Standard Aero, which has its headquarters in Winnipeg, Canada.

The agreement - worth around $20 million over the next five years - covers the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW100 series of engines that power the Bombardier Dash 8.

Canada's minister of industry, John Manley, says: "In Canada we are committed to helping our aerospace industry prosper in a global economy. When a major Canadian aviation manufacturer like Bombardier works together with a rapidly growing, innovative maintenance firm like Canada's Standard Aero, it helps us to achieve our Global targets."
