Indianapolis is now home to the third Rolls-Royce global On-Wing Care center to open in the past 18 months. The engine maker’s latest facility in a global network of repair and overhaul service centers, it will serve as Rolls-Royce’s new North American headquarters for the On-Wing Care program. The $1 million On-Wing Care center located at Indianapolis International Airport becomes the sixth Rolls-Royce facility in the Indianapolis area.

The 14,000-sq-ft hangar and 11,000-sq-ft shop provide line maintenance and “hospital level” support for all Rolls-Royce corporate and regional aircraft engines. It is capable of servicing more than 100 engines a year. 

Last year the company opened service centers in São Paulo, Brazil, and at Singapore Changi Airport. There are plans to offer On-Wing Care services in Abu Dhabi, through a joint venture with Mubadala Development/Sanad, later this year.
