For operators of Airbus and Boeing bizliners with wheel and brake MRO needs, World Aero CEO Phil Randell has a message: “Service while you wait? Why not? Our team regularly works weekends and turns jobs around while the customer’s courier has a coffee.”
Wheel and brake specialist World Aero (Booth 766) is introducing a program dedicated to servicing the needs of corporate aviation, focusing on operators of large corporate jets, from A320s up. “World Aero bridges the gap between small repair firms that cannot cope with larger components or busy commercial MROs that tend to offer a lower level of service for ‘one-off’ requests from private owners when they are busy with contracted work.”
World Aero also services models made by the major business jet manufacturers. Randell spoke of one instance where the company received all the brakes from a Bombardier Global Express for an urgent repair. “We had them back and ready to fit within 24 hours,” he said.
UK-based World Aero is approved by EASA, Transport Canada, and the U.S. FAA and has facilities near London as well as at Biggin Hill, Farnborough, and Luton airports. Its global logistics network covers “the wider world,” according to the company. World Aero can accommodate emergency AOG situations, and it also offers long-term service in the form of independent partner support, scheduled maintenance, ad hoc repairs, and per-landing agreements.
Randell concluded, “World Aero’s reputation has been built on honest and sustainable levels of quality and service, rather than simply boasting volumes.”
