AV8 MRO Acquires Multimillion Dollar Hawker Landing Gear Inventory

Duncan Aviation’s full inventory to be purchased

Houston, TX, February 11, 2015 – AV8 MRO, LLC, recently announced they have acquired a multimillion dollar inventory of Hawker Landing Gear and parts, substantially increasing their parts inventory and bringing the number of complete ship sets of landing gear for all series to 13.

By entering into a formal agreement with Duncan Aviation, AV8 MRO will acquire Duncan Aviation’s Hawker landing gear inventory and provide high quality landing gear exchange and overhaul options to Duncan Aviation and their customers.

“We are currently the only independent shop that can service Hawker landing gear, so adding such an extensive inventory will allow us to meet the increasing volume demands, turn times, FAA approved repair schemes, purchase options and economy that the Hawker operator community is demanding,” says Yoel Arnoni, Principal, AV8 MRO.

AV8 MRO offers three unique solutions for all Hawker landing gear needs including the option to have the customer’s landing gear sent in, overhauled and returned; an overhaul exchange; and independent of an overhaul, AV8 MRO can repair and or provide the specific parts needed to repair the landing gear.

“Working with AV8 MRO will allow us to offer our customers the high quality, cost-effective Hawker Landing Gear service they have come to expect and need. It will enable us to confidently deliver on time, at a great value, and without surprises,” says Steve Gade, Vice President of Duncan Aviation.

AV8 MRO has the in-house capabilities to repair and overhaul all series of Hawker landing gear. They are able to offer quick turn times and an economical price due to an extensive inventory of FAA-Approved Replacement Parts and FAA-Approved Component Repairs for Hawker landing gear.

In addition to their in-house capabilities to repair and overhaul all series of Hawker Landing Gear, AV8 MRO aggressively pursued gaining FAA Repair Specification Approval to make replacement parts.

Since receiving that FAA approval, AV8 MRO has gained approval for nearly 400 parts for Hawker Landing Gear. It is this extensive inventory of landing gear piece parts and components as well as multiple FAA approved component repairs offered by AV8 MRO that make them a one-stop-shop for all Hawker major component and landing gear needs.
