DALLAS – AMG Flite Components today announced the certification by the Federal Aviation Administration of its aircraft structures and composites repair center in Dallas, Texas. The 30,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility, located near Dallas Love Field, allows AMG Flite Components to offer full in-house composite and sheet metal repairs and metal bonding on all ATA systems for commercial and regional aircraft types such as Boeing 737, Boeing 757, ATR and all series of Canadair and Embraer Regional Jets.
“With this certification Flite Components completes an important investment in a critical capability for our customers,” said Gene Spaziani, general manager of Flite Components. “Composites and structures add an integral in-house expertise to the total component support programs offered by AMG, and our repair center in Dallas is an excellent location for the shipment of large flight surfaces from anywhere in North and South America.”
AMG Flite Components will employ latest technologies to perform testing, custom lay-up, bonding and oven and vacuum curing using materials such as carbon, Kevlar, graphite and glass thermoset prepregs This certification is the first stage of a planned expansion of composite and structures repair programs at AMG Flite Components, with additional capabilities for Airbus and Boeing aircraft to be added later this year.
