Piedmont Aviation Component Services has signed a seven year landing gear Maintenance Support Agreement with Republic Airways Holdings.
The company, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of TAT Technologies, will cover Republic’s Embraer E175 fleet, which totals 160 aircraft.
“This contract will position us as a world leading maintenance service provider for Embraer E170/190 landing gear as the fleet is just entering its first wave of major overhaul requirements,” noted Itsik Maaravi, TAT's president and CEO.
He continued, “The new agreement reinforces TAT's leading position in the regional landing gear maintenance industry, adding new capabilities to our existing product lines, which currently include ATR 42/72, CRJ 100/200 and Dash 8 aircraft.”
