Teardown & Recycling

We are very different to most aircraft tear down companies due to the fact that we are also an EASA approved MRO. We can support the teardown process from start to finish using our in house capabilities, this eliminates the need for sub-contracting services to a third party  Part 145 and the need for multiple contracts.

For care of maintenance projects we can place the aircraft in a care of maintenance program using our 145 until a decision is reached to redeliver the aircraft or perform a teardown, we have two sites available both capable of storing narrow body and wide body aircraft. Landing and Parking rates are very competitive at our selected sites.
