May 14, 2019 – Fort Lauderdale, Florida - GA Telesis (the “Company”), the pioneering leader in integrated aviation services, announced its MRO Services Group received its landing gear rating from the United States Federal Aviation Administration. This new rating allows the Company to provide their customers additional maintenance services with the same high level of quality and customer service. During the certification process, the Company successfully demonstrated its competency and stringent quality controls to produce a quality, airworthy product. Leading up to the certification, the Company made substantial investments in equipment and people to ensure a successful launch of this new product line.
The Company will start with capabilities for narrow-body and regional aircraft for Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer ramping up to service wide-body landing gear. The Company will simultaneously obtain EASA approval and will seek China CAAC approval within the first 12 months.
“This is a great step in the evolution of our MRO Services Group,” said Pastor Lopez, President of MRO Services. “We have hired the best team in the industry, with significant landing gear experience. We all share the common goal of delivering the highest levels of quality and customer service; thus raising the bar in the industry. Personally, I am thrilled to return to my landing gear roots.”
Landing gear repairs and overhauls will be carried out in the Miami facility located across from Miami International Airport and will support Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ job creation initiatives creating a significant number of new high-tech jobs. The Company has secured its first launch customer and will deliver the first ship set of landing gear this month.
