Vector Aerospace Transitions Hercules Propeller Capability to Scotland

Vector Aerospace UK (Vector –, a leading provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, has announced the successful transition of its Hercules C-130 propeller maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) capability to the Vector Aerospace Component Services site at Almondbank in Perthshire. The Almondbank facility - a leading provider of MRO for rotary and fixed wing aircraft – will be supporting operators of the renowned Hercules transport aircraft around the world.

The first of the Hamilton Sunstrand propellers were released to service in late March. Vector Aerospace Component Services Business Director, Mick O’Connor, commented, ‘The transition of this important product to a new facility took time, effort and commitment from across the Vector Aerospace group. The success of the exercise is a tribute to the skill of the Almondbank workforce and the willingness of the Croydon team to transfer the lessons of their years of experience to their colleagues in Scotland.’

He added, ‘We look forward to further developing our relationships with our global customer base and to engaging with potential new markets that this move opens up for Almondbank.’
