MRO, for the uninitiated, stands for Aircraft Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul, which is critically important for the aviation sector. MRO Management Services are required by commercial and private aircraft owners alike, although their competitive dynamics are quite different as one would expect.
Maintenance and repair of corporate and business aircraft is the primary role in which business MRO service providers are involved. They take care of all the material components, including airframes, engines, systems, and avionics. MROs are usually recognized by aviation authorities worldwide, and they often designated as approved repair facilities for aircraft origianal equipment manufacturers. Many MROs work in association with aircraft and component manufacturers to offer warranty services. These services may include –
As with most companies in the aviation sector, an MRO must have all the essential certificates and permissions which allow it to perform various levels of maintenance and repair as designated by the authority granting the license. They are also expected to work according to a schedule that has been approved by the customer and adhere to the agreed upon time frame. In countries outside the U.S., MROs are approved by the host country and may or may not hold a Part 145 U.S. repair station license. Each approved MRO must work in a specific way to ensure the highest levels of flight safety. Governing authorities grant licenses largely based upon an organization’s proven experience, training systems, required tooling and equipment, and facilities Expectedly, there is value in creating a business with enough scale and capability to address a large customer base. Although MROs can work with any company or client on a retail basis, they can have contracts for maintenance and inspection under longer term negotiated contracts.
