Ten Years of Military Aircraft Sustainment

Chesterland, OH – Aerospace Maintenance Solutions (AMS) originally started in 2005 with a handful of repair capabilities and a first contract from Lockheed Martin (LM). Today, AMS has grown to become a global company with more than 2,500 repair and overhaul capabilities supporting a dozen types of military aircraft domestically and internationally.

During the past ten years, AMS has continued to work with LM on both C-130 and F-16 aircraft platforms. LM has been near the top of AMS’s customer list for ten consecutive years and remains an AMS customer in 2015. Parts repaired and overhauled by AMS include a wide range of components, including radio, radar, cockpit instrumentation, gyroscopes, generator control units, circuit card assemblies, hydraulics, pneumatics, actuators and various control systems.

AMS is in compliance with AS9110, an advanced set of Quality practices developed by LM and other aerospace OEMs for the aerospace industry. Best practices like these have helped AMS expand its documented capabilities to provide maintenance solutions for F-5, F-16, and F-18 fighters; C-130 transports; UH-60 helicopters; and other strategically important aircraft platforms used today by the U.S. Department of Defense and its allies.

Domestically, AMS services have been provided to many aircraft end-users during the past ten years, including the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. DEA.

Internationally, AMS customers have included numerous branches of the militaries and police in Canada, Jordan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Columbia, Brazil, Portugal, Italy, Israel, Thailand, and Indonesia.
