Av8 MRO Decreases Turn Time With Newly Acquired In-House Cadmium Plating And Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)

Houston, TX, November 17, 2015 — Av8 MRO, specialists in the overhaul and repair of Hawker landing gear, recently announced the addition of in-house, FAA-approved cadmium plating and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) capabilities. The additional capabilities, both critical in the overhaul of landing gear, will allow Av8 MRO to offer a more convenient experience to customers by delivering quicker turn times.

“Together, these in-house processes will typically reduce our turn time by one to two weeks, which is substantial,” says Yoel Arnoni, Principal with Av8 MRO.

When outsourced, a typical cadmium plating process is a week-long process after shipment time and other logistics. When outsourcing is not necessary, a typical cadmium plating process takes two days.

Av8 MRO’s new Non Destructive Testing shop will offer:

  • Liquid penetrant (PT)
  • Magnetic particle (MT)
  • Eddy current (ET)
  • Ultrasonic (UT)

“The addition of NDT and Cad plating capabilities was the logical next step for us, as these processes allow us to determine more quickly what is required for a particular landing gear overhaul, thus saving our customers time and hassle,” said Russell Eckhart, Accountable Manager with Av8 MRO.
