Vector Aerospace UK (Vector – www.vectoraerospace.com), a leading provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, has delivered a repaired French Lynx Mk4 to the end customer.
“I am pleased that we have quickly and effectively completed our first international Lynx Depth repair contract in collaboration with Eurocopter”, said Ross Powlesland, Operations Director for Helicopters for Vector Aerospace UK. “This contract completion demonstrates that our rotary wing business continues to diversify, in defence and commercial, as we expand into the civil sector and apply our unique knowledge, experience and expertise gained from many years of military MRO provision”.
The aircraft arrived at the company’s Fleetlands site in early July and was inducted into the facility at the beginning of August. Despite having significant structural repair work, requiring the use of the main build jig, the aircraft was returned to the customer at the beginning of December – marking an impressive servicing turnaround, given the extent and complexity of the work required.
“The completion of this contract is an important milestone for Vector Aersopace UK”, said Managing Director, Michael Tyrrell. “It demonstrated flexibility and agility in meeting our customer’s requirements, proving that our technical excellence and lean approach are amongst the best in the MRO industry”.
