MIAMI, 8 April 2014. AeroTurbine Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of International Lease Finance Corp. (ILFC), has expanded its aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility in Goodyear, Ariz.
The expansion added a second hangar with an additional 100,000+ square feet of space, in which the company will provide maintenance services for its growing business of providing narrowbody aircraft maintenance and 757 P2F conversions.
Operating at Goodyear Airport, AeroTurbine's MRO facility now incorporates 352,000 square feet of hangar space and shops that support maintenance, modifications, avionics installs, painting, logistics, and more than 34 acres of aircraft storage, as well as disassembly for both widebody and narrowbody aircraft.
“The addition of this new space provides a significant increase to our MRO operations in Goodyear and will allow us to meet our current and future growth requirements,” says Michael King, AeroTurbine president and chief executive officer. “The expanded facility is ideally suited to leverage our wide range of engine and airframe products and services as well as our maintenance services to support our customers’ narrowbody aircraft.”
In October 2013, AeroTurbine opened its 264,000 square-foot facility in Miramar, Fla., which currently serves as the company’s new headquarters and provides support for its core business lines, including engine material, airframe material, asset leasing, and asset trading.
