Aircraft wheel and brake MRO World Aero this week celebrates processing its 16,000th component at its EASA/FAA/TCCA certified wheel and brake repair facility. World Aero carried out this work on a Messier-Bugatti-Dowty main wheel for the Boeing 787-8, for one of the world’s leading flag-carrier airlines.
Phil Randell, World Aero’s Managing Director, comments: “Celebrating the 16,000th component overhaul at World Aero reinforces the recent addition of our FAA Part-145 Repair Station Certification and cements our position as wheel and brake experts with one of the top specialist repair facilities in the region.”
Concentrating predominantly on the overhaul of wheel and brake products, the World Aero workshop routinely delivers in excess of 130 wheel and brake units per week at its purpose built facility. The custom-designed facility comprises seven energy efficient industrial units laid out in a modular fashion specifically for wheel and brake repair and overhaul. Their West Sussex location close to London’s Gatwick, Heathrow and City airports, and easily accessible from London, is key to the business, allowing it to service a number of the world’s largest aircraft spares support organisations, including AJW Aviation.
World Aero was initially established in 1999 as an aircraft maintenance, consultancy and training provider, before becoming an MRO facility in 2008 to offer wheel and brake maintenance and repair services. The Company has seen rapid growth in the eight years since becoming an MRO, from servicing 600 wheels and brakes in 2009 to over 3,700 in 2015. In April 2016, the Company achieved FAA Part-145 Repair Station certification, adding to its EASA and TCCA certification and sealing its credentials as a globally recognised wheel and brake repair facility.
World Aero’s capability list contains a wide variety of wheel and brake part numbers, and in addition to Messier-Bugatti-Dowty units, the Company services products from Honeywell, Meggitt, and UTC Aerospace Systems (Goodrich) applicable to commercial, regional and corporate aircraft. World Aero delivers services to a wide range of customers, from individual private jet owners, through small operators, and up to Europe’s largest single airline.Fuente: worldaero.co.uk
