US-based Collins Aerospace Systems (a unit of United Technologies Corp) and Lufthansa Technik AG have agreed a licensing and asset agreement for Airbus A380 main-landing-gear maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) services,
spanning the life of the A380 programme.
To help Lufthansa Technik develop the MRO capabilities needed for the A380 main landing gear, Collins Aerospace will provide training, parts and proprietary repair procedures, plus access to technical publications.
Ajay Mahajan, president of Landing Systems at Collins Aerospace (www.collinsaerospace.com
), said: “This agreement will give A380 operators more options for their main-landing-gear MRO services from high-quality repair centres.
“Lufthansa Technik and Collins Aerospace have enjoyed a long-standing relationship, and we look forward to continuing to work together to better meet the MRO needs of our customers.”
Sandra Eckstein, Lufthansa Technik’s vice-president of aircraft systems (www.lufthansa-technik.com
), said: “This agreement will enable us to support customers comprehensively, not only for planned repair events but also in the case of non-routine work.
“Our landing-gear experts in London will be ready for A380 services in 2020.
“Especially for customers in the EMEA region, this capability will save time and costs.”
