FEAM announced a new partnership with Sunaero-Americas. FEAM is a provider of airline line maintenance and engineering services to domestic and international air carriers flying transport planes throughout the U. S. Sunaero, a fuel tank and fuel systems repair specialists, will provide on-site fuel system repair services at the new FEAM MRO hangar located at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky (CVG) International Airport that caters to the growing air cargo fleet.
“FEAM’s strategic partnerships with aviation technical specialists like Sunaero has solidified our company as the leading provider of line maintenance in the MRO industry,” said Scott Diaz, Director of Business Development. “Reducing the recovery time of out of service aircraft and improving fleet performance of our airline partners is a core initiative at FEAM, resulting in continued expansions and deploying line support services to over 28 airports across the country this year.”
FEAM opened the 103,000-square-foot and $19 million hangar at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) early last year. The facility created the need for more than 100 high-paying aircraft mechanic jobs and supports the growing global logistics network at the airport. The hangar accommodates all narrow-body aircraft, as well as the Boeing B747 aircraft.
“At Sunaero-Americas, we strive to put quality and customer satisfaction first, and we are proud to share this commitment with FEAM, said Havan Tucker, Sunaero CEO. This partnership offers an opportunity for both FEAM and SUNAERO to better serve our valued customers.”
Sunaero utilizes helium tracer gas technology to pressurize the fuel system which allows for rapid identification of the leak point with the use of helium leak detection sensors. Repairs are then conducted timely and once completed, helium tracer gas is again used to re-pressurize the fuel system and confirm the leak point is repaired. This is accomplished without re-fueling the aircraft until after the leak point is confirmed repaired and therefore saves time and money to return the aircraft to service.
