Senator Dolan acknowledges AMS contributions to Ohio economy

Ohio Senator Matt Dolan has recognized Aerospace Maintenance Solutions (AMS) for its economic impact to the State of Ohio; the birthplace of Aviation. All of AMS revenue comes from outside the State of Ohio, much of it from outside the U.S. However, the Solon-based company is redistributing global currencies to support local Ohio economies.

In 2019, the company spent several million dollars renovating the new facility using all Ohio contractors. AMS spends millions of dollars yearly on salaries and benefits for their employees, all located in Ohio. AMS revenue also supports an important supply chain consisting of Ohio companies: software developers, component and material suppliers needed to support repairs of military aircraft components, calibration services for test equipment, soldering training services, and FAA and AS9110 training.

From a single location in Ohio, AMS provides critical repair and overhaul services needed for U.S. military aircraft (e.g., F-16, UH-60, C-130) to protect the U.S. homeland. AMS effectively lowers U.S. military costs with process innovations, which also enables mission readiness by minimizing maintenance delays. Ohio military bases supported by AMS include Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Youngstown Air Reserve Station, U.S. Coast Guard Great Lake Station, U.S. Army Reserve, Toledo Air National Guard, and Mansfield Air Nation Guard.

AMS services also support the U.S. Border Patrol and the Department of Homeland Security aircraft as well as aircraft used by police, fire-fighters, DEA, search-and-rescue, EMS, and other public safety operations across the U.S.

AMS supports Ohio Governor Advisor Joe Zeis in his mission to “Preserve and expand Ohio’s Aerospace and Defense Industry. . . and Maintain and grow the workforce.”

As part of the U.S. Department of Defense’s Industrial Base, AMS was identified as part of the U.S. Critical Infrastructure Sector by the Undersecretary of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security during the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning on March 19, AMS employees in Ohio have maintained normal work schedules per the Undersecretary’s guidelines. Since then, AMS has not laid off, furloughed, or otherwise reduced its workforce. It is one of a very few aerospace companies in Ohio actively seeking to increase the number of overall employees during 2020 by hiring additional personnel.

AMS welcomes DCMA representative to new on-site office

Solon, Ohio – Starting in July of 2020, Aerospace Maintenance Solutions, LLC (AMS) will welcome a DCMA representative to an onsite office at AMS headquarters in Solon, Ohio.


DCMA is an agency of the U.S. federal government reporting to the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment. It is responsible for administering contracts for the Department of Defense and other authorized federal agencies.


DCMA oversight is a “higher level contract requirement” for contracts AMS has with the United States (U.S.) military and prime military aircraft OEMs (e.g., Lockheed Martin). AMS is an FAA Part 145 repair station with an AS9110 Quality system. The DCMA (Defense Contract Management Agency) supports the culture of Quality at AMS.


The new on-site office arrangement makes sense for both DCMA and AMS because the DCMA representative is regularly at the facility now to inspect AMS maintenance, repair, and overhaul work completed for the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Army, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and military aircraft OEMs. The representative will also continue inspection duties with other companies in the Cleveland area.


DCMA oversight also benefits foreign military allies by upholding the highest standards of quality, workmanship, and reliability.

AMS repairs and overhauls gyros and accelerometers

Solon, OH — A new document published by Aerospace Maintenance Solutions, LLC (AMS) describes the company’s testing, troubleshooting, repair, and overhaul capabilities for many common gyros and accelerometers. Gyroscopes tested and repaired include displacement, lead computing, rate, and roll gyros. These gyro and accelerometer units are typically found on C-130, F-5, F-15, F-16, UH-1, UH-60, and other military aircraft platforms.


Trained technicians at AMS operate an in-house, two-axis Rate Table to simulate aircraft acceleration forces along lateral and normal axis and rate of turn in two axis positions. They test horizontal and vertical rates from 0 to 860 degrees per second, and +/- 10 Gs of acceleration. Technicians also validate accelerometer and gyroscopic operational specifications being tested are within acceptable tolerance ranges.


All tests, repairs, and overhaul procedures are conducted within the company’s approved AS9110 Quality system.

AMS VIDS capabilities identified for UH-60 end users

Chesterland, OH — Aerospace Maintenance Solutions, LLC (AMS) repairs and overhauls components within the UH-60’s Vertical Instrument Display Systems (VIDS). But as some UH-60s are being transitioned to non-military applications, repair and test procedures require modifications to meet new customer requirements. In these cases, AMS works with customers to test, repair, and document the changes in accordance with new requirements and applications for UH-60s.

 A new document published by AMS describes the company’s testing, troubleshooting, repair, and overhaul of VIDS components on UH-60s.  AMS has in-house test equipment used for maintaining and sustaining VIDS components. AMS technicians are trained to operate test equipment associated with each VIDS component. All tests and repair procedures are conducted within the company’s approved AS9110 Quality system.

AMS offers a combination of solutions for each VIDS component serviced: The Central Display Unit (CDU), Pilot Display Unit (PDU), and the Signal Data Converter. 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 VIDS components to service are documented by AMS.
