AAR , a worldwide provider of aviation services to commercial airlines, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and governments, has expanded and updated its hydraulic repair and overhaul facility at AAR Aircraft Component Services – Amsterdam in response to rising demand.
AAR announced the expansion Thursday during the Singapore Airshow.
The renovation of the facility entailed a significant investment in state-of-the-art testing equipment, a reconfiguration of the space, and the hiring of additional personnel. Together, these updates more than double the capacity of the previous facility to handle work on a longer list of parts and systems, such as hydraulic pumps; flap, thrust-reverser and landing-gear actuators; and flow control and shutoff valves for various aircraft from Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, Bombardier and others.
Equipped for Maximum Efficiency
· Two new test stands, developed by ACS – Amsterdam, are equipped with the latest advances in automation, complete with control software. The gearbox test stand is designed to meet aircraft flow and pressure test requirements for all Boeing, Airbus, Embraer, CRJ and other airframes working on Skydrol fluid at 3,000 or 5,000 PSI, including new-generation aircraft.
· The facility’s existing universal bench has integrated higher levels of automation, eliminating the transition time required for a worker to activate settings manually. Measurements are taken and fed into an HTML report.
· A new logistics area and a central warehouse increase capacity and reduce turnaround times even in periods of peak volume, so that components are returned to service as swiftly as possible.
“This refresh propels ACS – Amsterdam to the leading edge of hydraulic component repair and overhaul for commercial aircraft,” said Salvatore Cristofori, Director of Sales & Commercial Operations, Aircraft Component Services – Amsterdam. “As important as our advanced machinery are our people. They are the backbone of our success in meeting rising demand.”
Continual reinvestment in its infrastructure and workforce is central to AAR’s mission to Do It Right by providing first-class service and support to its customers.
