Aircraft Propeller Service (APS) has opened a new MRO facility in Lake Zurich, Illinois.
APS said the facility makes it the first third-party MRO licensed to perform any OEM-proprietary repairs and inspections, including compression wrap processes on 568F six-blade electronic control composite propeller system.
APS said it now plans to open two new MRO shops in Atibaia, Brazil and Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia between late 2015 and early 2016.
APS President and CEO Dan Colbert said: “We recently completed our first two compression wrap processes on behalf of a Brazilian ATR operator and a US-based MRO. This is a significant milestone for APS, and we are extremely excited about this new capability."
