Vallair, the multi-faceted aviation business dedicated to the support of aircraft operators and lessors, has increased its MRO offering to include A330 aerostructure repair capabilities.
The capability will be offered at its facility in Châteauroux, France where it currently repairs a variety of parts, including nacelles, inlet cowls, fan cowls, thrust reversers and flight controls.
“We are always seeking new ways to support our customers, and by constantly assessing and reacting to the demands of the market Vallair is able to fine tune our capabilities,” comments Malcolm Chandler, Head of Commercial & Marketing at Vallair.
“To date our aerostructure capability has focused on narrowbody aircraft such as the B737 and the A321, so this will be a new path for Vallair.
“We have upskilled our current workforce to accommodate these additional services and work on A330 thrust reversers and inlet cowls will begin this month.
“Currently our turn-around times for narrowbody thrust reversers are four to five weeks, with five to six weeks for outer workscopes, and we will maintain these efficient TATs the A330.”
