During the Farnborough Airshow in the UK (1117 July), HAECO Americas, a subsidiary of the HAECO Group, signed a letter of intent with Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation to become a preferred airframe Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) partner for the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ) in North America.
Through Mitsubishi’s preferred MRO provider network, HAECO Americas will offer scheduled and unscheduled airframe maintenance as well as special maintenance services, including service bulletin incorporation and post-production modification.
HAECO Americas expects to finalize a formal agreement for a service network contract in the near future with Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation for MRJ.
Editor’s Note: Two other companies were also selected as MRO service providers for the Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ). These were Pemco World Air Services (“PEMCO”) in North America and All Nippon Airways unit MRO Japan. All three have received letters of intent.
