Ontic will support Meggitt’s OEM legacy manufacturing of signal conditioners, military chip detectors, cockpit indicators, and connector harnesses under a new license agreement first announced in June. Those parts are used on a variety of legacy commercial, business and general aviation, and military aircraft, according to Ontic, a unit of BBA Aviation.
“Ontic is pleased to add these products to our portfolio and having them benefit from the Extended Life Solutions we provide,” Ontic president Gareth Hall said. “This license of product families, in particular, highlights Ontic’s capability to strategically assist OEMs with the on-going support of their non-core products, allowing the OEM to progress and concentrate on its strategic priorities.”
Manufacturing and maintenance support of those products will be provided to the installed base through the new agreement, which calls for Ontic to continue Part 21 new-build manufacturing as well as comprehensive Part 145 repairs and spares. It builds on a Meggitt license Ontic acquired earlier for engine pressure and fuel-flow transmitters, and fluid monitoring chip detectors.
