Business aircraft services platform MRO Insider has merged with its European counterpart, Aviation Heaven, allowing customers access to a larger and geographically broader pool of FAA-authorized maintenance providers through MRO Insider’s mobile and desktop apps for quoting AOG and other maintenance work. With the merger, MRO Insider customers now have access to 63 service providers outside the U.S. The deal also brings MRO Insider’s total providers to more than 400, the company added.
“It’s great to see both networks working together on the same goal, providing worldwide coverage for FAA-registered jets,” said Aviation Heaven president Andreas Past. “We at Aviation Heaven are proud to represent MRO Insider in Europe, Asia, and Africa.” Aviation Heaven customers also will be able to use MRO Insider on their trips to the U.S., Past noted.
MRO Insider president Andy Nixon said Past has helped his company over the years by providing international contacts for maintenance, parts, and ground support equipment. “It seemed fitting to partner up with a like-minded individual when it comes to supporting corporate aircraft providers through technology,” Nixon added.
In September, MRO Insider also entered the FBO market, facilitiating quotes for hangar rental, fuel, and handling services, among others.
