Gyro & Accelerometer Repair Capabilities

Chesterland, OH — Aerospace Maintenance Solutions, LLC (AMS) has published a new leaflet that describes the company’s testing, troubleshooting, repair, and overhaul of many common gyros and accelerometers. The company’s capabilities include a variety of services for accelerometers as well as rate, roll, and lead-computing gyros used on military fighters (F-5, F-15, and F-16), helicopters (Bell 412, UH-1, UH-60), and transports (C-130).

The two-page leaflet shows AMS’s in-house CONTRAVES rate table and supporting test equipment used for maintaining and sustaining the flight control components. AMS technicians are trained to operate the two-axis rate table for determining if the gyros and accelerometers are sending the correct output signals, operating within normal tolerance ranges, and meeting other important airworthiness criteria.

Horizontal and vertical rates, acceleration forces, and other rate table testing capabilities are detailed in the free leaflet.

AMS offers a combination of solutions for each component serviced. Solutions for cost efficiency, regulatory compliance, technical troubleshooting, design, diminishing sources of replacement components, procurement, and maintenance are rendered on an “as needed” basis, depending upon the individual requirements and preferences of customers.  Repairs, testing procedures, and other relevant practices used for returning gyros and accelerometers to service are documented by AMS.

AMS Expanding Capabilities, Moving to Bigger Building

Chesterland, OH – To meet the growing global demand for repair and overhaul of high-value components found on military aircraft, Aerospace Maintenance Solutions, LLC (AMS) is adding new capabilities in 2018 and moving into a larger building to increase work production capacity by more than 200%.


The AS9110 certified repair station is expanding its hydraulic, pneumatics and electronics capabilities with new test equipment and multiple work stations throughout the new facility. The new capabilities support existing platforms (e.g. F-16, UH-60) with greater hydraulic flow capacity and larger generator wattage and control capabilities.


AMS is expanding the instrument capabilities it offers to end users with air data calibration capabilities.


Additional equipment supporting repairs and overhauls of aircraft electronics includes military standard 1553 data bus stations, accelerometer and gyroscope testing stations, radio and radar repair stations, and fuel flow transmitter support. AMS is expanding CADC support to include additional aircraft platforms. The company will also devote more square footage and company resources to its in-house Quality and Engineering/R&D departments at the new building, located in Solon, Ohio in the USA.
