Bell 206 operators received welcome news to help offset rising maintenance costs this week when the FAA granted PMA approval to Able Aerospace to provide low-cost replacements of Bell 206 Duplex Bearings (OEM p/n 206-040-032-105; Able p/n 2AA-040-032-105). Able, a world leader in aviation component repair development, overhaul, and approved replacement parts solutions, will immediately begin offering the replacement Duplex Bearings from their facility in Mesa, Arizona.
“We are very excited to provide another affordable replacement part to 206 operators,” said Able Aerospace president, Anthony Saenz. “We offer certified, guaranteed parts that erase long lead-times and significantly reduce operating costs immediately.”
This latest certification is just one of the many cost-saving solutions that Able has been able to offer after 29 + years in the industry. The FAA grants approval through its Aircraft Certification Office and Manufacturing Inspection District Office. It is the same process and offices the original manufacturer goes through.
