This week we heard that Aviation Week presented its 2012 MRO of the Year Awards for outstanding achievement and innovation in aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) to four industry leaders: US Airways, Sikorsky Aerospace Services, Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Co., and Leading Edge Aviation Services.
These annual industry awards honor the world’s top MRO and aftermarket companies. “These winners have demonstrated how creativity and a passion for solving problems can go a long way,” said Lee Ann Tegtmeier, editor-in-chief of Overhaul & Maintenance. “Aviation Week is proud to present them with these awards for their significant contributions to aviation aftermarket industry.”
The Outstanding Airline Maintenance Group winner, US Airways, made significant achievements in last year, including reducing how long deferred maintenance items stayed open by 19% and successfully deferring fewer maintenance items, which set new records for lowest day and lowest month totals.
MRO attendees and industry leaders applauded this year’s winners at the afternoon ceremony on April 3. For more information on the awards and winners, including photos, visit AviationWeek.com or read the April 2012 issue of Overhaul & Maintenance.
