The Av8 Group has received FAA approval to provide complete landing gear overhaul services for Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 aircraft. The new Embraer programme is a result of the company's resources in engineering, PMA parts certification and experience in redefining landing gear overhaul processes.
The new programme offers operators fixed pricing, which provides customers with an inclusive overhaul along with favourable price protection. Qualifying gear just needs to meet two simple requirements for the Fixed Price programme, which eliminates additional bills, exceptions and exclusions. This means that the price quoted is exactly the same as the final bill. Landing gear will be inspected and overhauled in accordance with OEM standards, as well as FAA and EASA authorisations. Turnaround times are expected to be four weeks from equipment receipt and exchange gear will be available if required.
The Av8 Group provides value for the Phenom 100 and 300 gear overhaul through the use of PMA parts, engineered and certified in-house to OEM and FAA specifications. The company anticipates savings of 10 per cent or more from traditional factory overhaul, along with confirmation of a firm completion date and locked pricing for each overhaul project.
“We are very proud to be able to offer our services to Embraer operators around the world. We believe the 100 and 300 are very well-designed aircraft that deserve overhaul options of the highest quality. We are dedicated to providing the next level of landing gear overhaul so much so that we have actually acquired two Phenom 100s ourselves. They are outstanding airplanes,” says Av8 CEO Yoel Arnoni.
Located in Houston, Texas, Av8 Group, an FAA and EASA authorised repair station and FAA PMA authority, combines three distinct subsidiary units: Av8 MRO, Av8 PMA and Av8 AOG. Each unit provides experience and capability, from PMA parts and engineering, accessory and component MRO to AOG parts sales, distribution and managed repair services. Together as the Av8 Group, these capabilities and extensive experience in the design, certification and manufacture of PMA parts allow The Av8 Group to provide value in the overhaul of mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic components, including landing gear.
