Letter From MRO Publisher

MRO Publisher recaps past, looks to the future of Aviation Week’s MRO products across the board.

Dear Readers, 

It has been one year since the integration of, and next month marks our 23rd MRO Americas event. With that in mind, here is a “State of MRO” snapshot and a brief history of how we arrived at our essential MRO portfolio.  

We’ve been serving the MRO industry for more than 25 years. As the demand for aircraft overhaul and maintenance products, services and education grew over the past few decades, so did our MRO portfolio. We began with Overhaul & Maintenance magazine, the World Aerospace Database and the MRO Americas event, later growing to incorporate ATEM (aircraft technology, engineering and maintenance) and to become the ultimate resource connecting MRO professionals and driving business.

Our MRO events now take place in Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, as do AP&M (airline purchasing and maintenance), engine- and airline-specific conferences and exhibitions. We grew our digital and data product offerings, relaunching and developing MRO Prospector, MRO Links, Fleet Discovery and the Fleet & MRO Forecasts.

A firm commitment to editorial excellence has allowed the team, led by award-winning MRO Chief Editor Lee Ann Shay, to cover the industry with experienced insight and expertise. Most recently, Lee Ann won a 2017 Aerospace Media Award for an Inside MRO Best Future Technology submission.

Last year’s integration of has enabled us to become a true 360-deg. MRO resource for the industry. We’ve combined and enhanced our editorial team, publications, websites and events to better serve you and the community.
