Overview (Air Capabilities)
We are an aircraft spare parts supplier. Supplying, source and repair a diverse range of aircraft spare parts, equipment, spare parts and components to both our commercial and defence customers ensuring your platforms remain operational at all times. With a particular specialism in UK and US fixed and rotary wing platforms, we cover all areas of aircraft spare parts support including rotables, LRUs, airframe equipment, ground support equipment (GSE) and maintenance bay equipment.
We have, at your disposal, over 500,000 spare part line items from our fully stocked 100,000 sq. ft. warehouse at our facility in the United Kingdom, with access to many millions more spare parts through our partnered supply chain network.
In supporting many overseas air forces, including our own UK MOD and NATO, we maintain a large inventory of diverse aircraft spare parts and components from complete aircraft and engines to consumables and hardware.
As the company houses a great deal of original manufactured material, we have a very strong working relationship with many of the leading OEMs. The company continues to strengthen its position by purchasing excess inventory to enhance its product offering. Through efficient management of the supply chain, ASL selects and works closely with preferred and partnered suppliers and sub-contractors to complement our in-house component supply giving a structured approach to supply chain solutions.
We provide repair and overhaul services from a variety of sources which are managed and delivered through our in-house Mechanical and Electrical Workshops and complemented by global partnered OEM approved repair and overhaul workshops – providing the desired flexibility and quality assurance requirements during the repair process.
Our tailored programmes ensure that we deliver the cost reductions required, and support packages to ensure through-life operational availability. In having a strategic partnership with ASL, you will receive an integrated approach and through-life support delivering your requirements.
Due to throughput volumes on a number of programmes, we are able to deliver cost reductions which we immediately pass onto you. Should the programme benefit from a Long-Term Agreement this gives you peace of mind when determining your repair and overhaul budget requirements.
For many years we have worked with customers around the world to keep their assets operational. Preserving the lifespan of more mature fleets requires a unique blend of expertise and knowledge. With this combination of talent, we have delivered sustainable through-life solutions for a number of aircraft platforms, and with a structured strategy, it is possible to mitigate most risks. Our experience at ASL affords us the ability to identify obsolescence risk at the earliest stage and then mitigate the risk with our extensive stock and customised obsolescence management programme.
We offer a highly skilled service for the maintenance and life extension of high and low-value LRUs. We extend the life of LRUs, systems and components through a routine overhaul, repair, re-certification and small batch production solutions, to your approved standards.
As an example of our Legacy Experience, we undertook the assessment of some major Weapon System LRUs which were all in need of repair as a result of obsolescence. ASL technicians correctly identified all the major deficiencies, and working in partnership with the customer, resolved the obsolescence with approved replacement parts. The units were rigorously tested, returned to the customer and installed into the aircraft platform which in turn was successfully redeployed into front line service.
