AMS performs maintenance, repair, and overhaul services required to maintain aircraft instrumentation, radar, radio communication, electrical/electronics system components, and mechanical accessories (including hydraulic and pneumatic components) to support the military, police, and others in aerospace industry.

We specialize in maintaining components that are no longer actively supported by their OEMs. AMS often provides shorter lead times and better pricing. Our comprehensive services include:

-Custom designing and retro–engineering test equipment to support aircraft component repair

-Reverse engineering of the unit under test and the development of schematics, parts breakdowns, and test procedures to support maintenance operations

-Developing repair procedures, identifying replacement component alternates, and implementing system design changes

-Documenting test procedures, test equipment manuals, and other resources cataloged in our library to provide a comprehensive engineering package

-Developing repair procedures and processes in house and then submitting them for source acceptance as required to perform maintenance on U.S. Government contract and FMS programs.

Aerospace Maintenance Solutions is in compliance with ISO 9001:2008 and AS9110:2009 Rev A requirements.
