Reaches Agreement With Piaggio, Messier Dowty
ANN has learned Aero Precision Repair and Overhaul, Co. -- also
known as A-PRO -- will soon begin overhaul and repair services on
the Piaggio P-180 Avanti landing gear and related accessories.
A-PRO received approval to perform this work from both Piaggio, the
manufacturer of the aircraft, and Messier Dowty, the manufacturer
of the landing gear.
Representatives with A-PRO say the company has extensive
overhaul experience gained from its involvement in the Dassault
Falcon, ATR, Dornier, Sikorsky and Embraer programs. A-PRO was
selected to perform work on the twin-turboprop Piaggio Avanti after
establishing its reputation for supporting corporate and regional
"The Piaggio program is a good fit for us in many ways," says
A-PRO President Alex Tearle. "This high end turboprop is a good
stable-mate to our current corporate programs that have yielded
extensive experience with landing gears of this size. The proximity
of Piaggio's US Corporate Headquarters in West Palm Beach, FL also
enhances the day to day working relationship."
A-PRO was established in 1989 as a joint venture between
Dassault Falcon Jet and Messier as an OEM authorized repair
facility. A-PRO has overhauled more than 2,200 landing gears and
processed over 40,000 components since inception in its
company-owned 41,000 square foot facility in Florida.
