Air Services Completes Extensive Aircraft Recovery

CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Air Services, a division of Constant Aviation specializing in commercial aircraft maintenance headquartered at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, announced they completed their fifth (5) complete Embraer 145 nose removal and replacement. The commercial airline contracted Air Services’ Mobile Recovery Team to complete the recovery and deliver the aircraft back to service after the Embraer 145 slid off the runway in Canada.

“Our Mobile Recovery Team is comprised of 20 dedicated individuals that are capable of traveling the world to successfully complete small to very large complex structural repairs. We have the necessary tooling and resources to provide this added service to both the commercial and corporate sectors. The organization is extremely proud of the Team’s achievements in 2010 and look forward to the division growth in 2011,” said Stephen Maiden, President of Air Services.

The ten (10) person Recovery Team spent 80 days in Ottawa, Canada performing the nose section, belly skin, landing gear, flight control and avionics component replacement, and substantial wiring repairs and replacements. After completing the recovery the aircraft spent a week at the Air Services facility in Cleveland where the nose section was repainted and the aircraft was returned to service.

“This was one of the most extensive and complicated recoveries our Mobile Team has completed. After the preliminary feedback from the engineering team was received it was determined that the entire nose section just forward of the passenger door needed to be replaced including the belly skin back to the leading edges. The experience our team has with complete nose replacements proved to be a key asset in successfully completing this recovery. The aircraft has since flown close to 150 hours with no issues,” said David Williams, Operations Manager of Air Services.
