Wheel and brake MRO World Aero comes to MEBAA 2018

posted on 10th December 2018 by Justin Burns

Aircraft wheel and brake MRO World Aero has chosen Dubai for the formal global launch of its wheel and brake MRO and supply solutions dedicated to the needs of corporate aviation at this week’s MEBAA show.

Targeted precisely at operators of large corporate jets – A320s and upwards – or private family fleets, World Aero said it bridges the gap between small repair firms that cannot cope with larger components, or busy commercial MROs that tend to offer a lower level of service for ‘one off’ requests from private owners when they are busy with contracted work.

World Aero chief executive officer, Phil Randell said: “We find that owner/operators, pilots and even specialist corporate jet repair facilities think that what they want is unavailable. But World Aero understands the demands of the corporate environment where time is not only a precious commodity, but high net worth individuals and senior executives are not accustomed to waiting for anything.

“Wheels and brakes may not be the most glamorous parts of a corporate jet, but they are essential to safe and timely flights.  Our dedicated service removes the pain from dealing with wheel and brake repairs for corporate aircraft of all sizes, and we do it fast, without fuss.  Everything we do is focused on providing a reliable and dependable solution from VLJ’s up to B747-8.”

World Aero’s facility is EASA, FAA and TCCA approved, located close to London and the major business airports at Biggin Hill, Farnborough and Luton. The whole of the UK is covered and, through its global logistics network – the wider world.

Randell added: “We frequently get wheels and brakes sent to us by organisations with a special requirement that is often urgent.  We’re geared up to fit with their operational needs and give them breathing space to get the aircraft ready and keep to their departure schedules.

“On OEM recently sent in all the brakes from one of their Global Express aircraft for an urgent repair and we had them back and ready to fit within 24 hours. Another globally respected MRO based in Switzerland was stumped by a complex urgent wheel overhaul and through the OEM’s recommendation, came to World Aero for a deeper level of work knowing we would return it to suit their customer’s schedule.

“Service while you wait?  Why not? Our team regularly works weekends and turns jobs around while the customer’s courier has a coffee.”

He concludes: “World Aero’s reputation has been built on honest and sustainable levels of quality and service rather than by simply boasting volumes. Being a privately owned and truly independent MRO, we’re not restricted by complex corporate structure or under the influence of an OEM, so we are free to make decisions that satisfy our customers both today and in the future.”
