Following the recent receipt of AS9110:C quality system certification for MROs, Volo Aero MRO (Stand 1773) is exhibiting for the first time at the Dubai Airshow this week. “As a Rolls-Royce-authorized repair facility for 501-D22 /T56 piece part repairs, as well as a supplier of MRO services to several of the world’s OEMs, we are looking forward to having an on-site presence at this year’s show,” Andrew Walmsley, president of the Massachusetts-based aircraft parts supplier and consultancy, told AIN ahead of the airshow.

An EASA- and FAA-approved repair station, the company provides repair support on more than 40 parts for the in-production Rolls-Royce T56 and 501 large turboprop engines found on military and civilian airplanes, including the Air Force’s C-130H and Lockheed P-3C Orion, the latter of which served as a U.S. Navy patrol aircraft for nearly 60 years before the last of them were retired from service in May 2020.

Additionally, Volo provides consulting services to MROs for the development and implementation of strategies to improve their business. The company also supplies overhaul services to engine piece parts on the Pratt & Whitney Canada PW4000 and V2500 and CFM International’s CF6-80C2 and CFM56 product lines, as well as component piece-part repairs on Hamilton/Collins Aerospace OEM material, according to Walmsley.
