From the company's facilities in Indianapolis, Indiana, and Oakland, California, as well as fleet support at customer bases, Rolls-Royce will work on the AE 1107C turboshaft.

"We are focused on enabling our customers to keep their aircraft flying and supporting them every day to allow their missions to go forward."
