AMMROC staff will perform the calendar 12-year inspections, a critical overhaul that includes the inspection and repair of the aircraft mechanical systems, avionics systems, and airframe. AMMROC technicians will perform the overhaul within the UAE, providing a key regional capability formerly only available abroad.
