AerSale has acquired aircraft component repair specialist Avborne. Avborne is a certified FAA 145 repair station in Miami, FL, covering a broad range of commercial and military aircraft systems, including hydraulic, pneumatic, electronic, and landing gear components. Avborne’s in-house engineering development team is continuously introducing repair and overhaul regimes as one of the few component MROs operating today under the authority of an FAA Open Class Rating. This licensing allows Avborne to initiate its own FAA repair validation packages for expedited introduction of new repair and overhaul capabilities well in advance of traditional MRO participants. In conjunction with AerSale’s existing MRO facilities, the acquisition of Avborne will enable AerSale to provide complete MRO services across numerous aircraft platforms, from the component level through aircraft heavy maintenance.
