Embraer has selected Constant Aviation’s Cleveland facility to become an authorized service center for the Phenom 100 and 300. Under the terms of the agreement the MRO will be able to provide complete maintenance and avionics services as well as modifications, composite repairs, Airworthiness Directives and Service Bulletins on both types of aircraft. Constant will also use its previous experience working with Embraer on warranty claims to provide seamless service to the Phenom customers. According to Constant president Stephen Maiden, the initial tooling investment will be approximately $150,000. “With more than 125 Phenom 100/300s currently in operation this will be a good market for us. Initially we’ll be sending four technicians to school on the aircraft and increase that number over time as needed. It gives us an annual capacity of about 9,000 technician-hours,” Maiden told AIN. He said the MRO began its relationship with Embraer in 1996 as an ERJ 135 service center. In 2002, Constant Aviation became a Legacy 600/650 service center. “We currently perform about 70 percent of all available Legacy 600/650 scheduled maintenance services annually,” he said.
