Av8 Group facilitates overhaul growth
Expansion of the Av8 Group's primary overhaul shop and office headquarters in Houston, Texas will accommodate its growing capabilities for overhaul customers.
Yoel Arnoni has taken Av8 from landing gear overhauls to other systems and components as well.

The Av8 Group has added 9,000 sq ft to its primary overhaul shop and office headquarters in Houston, Texas, bringing its total footprint to 30,000 sq ft. The expansion comes just as the company has added major capabilities to its growing focus on component overhaul. The addition of a servo test stand, that can measure data in milliseconds, will allow it to begin to overhaul servos and valves contained in many assemblies such as anti-skid control valves.

The group also recently acquired a dedicated actuator test stand, increasing its overhaul capability for mechanical and hydraulic components such as flap/stabiliser screw jacks and leading edge actuators.

These additional testing capabilities will allow the company to overhaul a larger variety of assemblies and systems.

The Av8 Group is in the unique position of holding an FAA PMA (Parts Manufacturer Approval) and an extensive on-staff engineering department, including a dedicated DER. The company can bring value to its customers by using PMA parts as part of its overhaul and repair processes; it reports customer savings of 30 - 50 per cent off overhaul costs when PMA parts developed by Av8 Group are used in the process.

“The expansion and additional testing capabilities are in line with our renewed focus on value in overhauls,” says CEO Yoel Arnoni. “This extends far beyond the initial landing gear overhauls we have become known for. We can now bring the same substantial value to other systems and component overhauls that we have been delivering to our landing gear customers.”
