New ARC® shop at Hawker Pacific Aerospace

Hawker Pacific Aerospace opened its new ARC® (Airframe Related Component) shop in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Thereby the landing gear specialist broadens its product portfolio by adding services for thrust reversers. The facility has already received the first five thrust reverser units (V2500) of launch customer Spirit Airlines.

Dedicated to ARC® services, Hawker Pacific Aerospace's Fort Lauderdale facility currently serves as the hub of thrust reverser services for Lufthansa Technik's customers within the Americas. The new shop spreads over 12,000 square feet and can handle the concurrent servicing of six to eight thrust reversers. It is equipped with all state-of-the-art tooling and equipment necessary to perform customized thrust reverser overhaul workscopes.

Hawker Pacific Aerospace plans to build up capability in California and Florida for further thrust reverser types including CFM56-5B/-7, CF34-10E as well as Trent 1000 and/or GEnx-1B.
