Certified Aviation Services (CAS) Components, a leading provider of component overhaul, signed a five-year agreement with a major cargo carrier.
Out of a competitive pool of approved vendors competing for the service contract, CAS was chosen by the air carrier as their preferred component repair shop.
This extensive contract requires full coverage on repair and overhaul of high flow pneumatics, air cycle machines and mechanical accessories. The agreement was specifically assembled to provide higher reliability and reduced turnaround time.
In addition, CAS has internally designated engineering representative (DER) capabilities and a robust partnership with a parts manufacturer approval (PMA) house that will be utilized on this contract. CAS is always looking at ways to provide cost-cutting initiatives to its customers.
Brad Caban, President of CAS Components, said, "While we have supported their operations for a few years now, this contract not only memorializes the relationship, but it allows CAS a much larger supporting role regarding component repair. Additionally, they have been open to allowing us to utilize PMA parts where our reliability data shows improvement on-wing with their use. We look forward to the increased role and will utilize our expertise and engineering to continue seeking out improvements with on-wing reliability and TAT reduction."
