NAASCO Announces FAA/DER Approved Repair Capabilities for Zodiac Contactor for the Airbus A318; A319; A320; A321

Repair stations, and operators around the world citing complaints about predatory pricing, quality, and turn times, NAASCO has spent thousands of man-hours in developing affordable repair alternatives to the OEM. As a result, NAASCO has finalized a DER Approved Repair (FAA approval) of the Zodiac contactor P/N: 558CA01Y1, 558CA04A30Y00, 558CA04A40Y00, 558CA04A41Y00. The contactor is now able to be cost-effectively repaired (vs. ‘expendable’) utilizing NAASCO’s industry Sil-MetTM repair solution and will be certified with an FAA/EASA dual release 8130 tag.

From a production standpoint, NAASCO says they will provide a three-week turn-around-time. For faster service, an express routine overhaul is available for a modest fee. Additionally, depending on negotiated contract terms, NAASCO will develop and maintain an exchange pool program for select clients. “By extending the life of parts once considered consumable, operators can potentially save thousands of dollars with NAASCO’s cutting-edge repair solutions,” according to Mike Leslie, NAASCO’s president & CEO. “We understand the challenges that operators face every day and they should know that NAASCO will continue to drive product improvements for all types of starter generators, motors, relays, contacts, and other electro-mechanical components.”
