Featuring CargoTek® Cargo Bay Protection Solutions, Cargo Door Armor, and PMA Portfolio

Everett, Washington (October 15, 2021) ― Aviation Technical Services (ATS) today shared its plans for MRO Europe 2021 which opens October 20th in Amsterdam and invites all attendees to stop by booth 5098. ATS, an award-winning provider of airframe MRO and component support services, has been expanding its Engineering Solutions and Ranger Asset Management offerings; both a primary target of its show activity this year. All product displays are being shown by ATS for the first time in Europe.

On Display:

CargoTek Cargo Bay Protection Solutions protect OEM cargo bay floors and sidewalls leading to the elimination of cargo related AOG and Minimum Equipment List (MEL) events. CargoTek products are in service today on Boeing 737 MAX as well as Airbus A320 aircraft. Impact resistant CargoTek panels have been integrated into an interactive arcade game where attendees can experience first-hand the durability of the product.

Cargo Door Armor is an affordable solution for Boeing 737 Next Generation and MAX Series operators looking to protect their cargo doors from damage incurred while loading and unloading luggage and cargo from the aircraft. ATS will be showcasing an upgraded version of this product, highlighting design advancements which make it even more popular with ramp teams.

The ATS PMA Portfolio is an alternative for airlines looking for relief from high cost, long lead time, and high failure parts. ATS PMA parts are engineered through collaboration with a 45-year airline partner and utilize data from airframe maintenance and component repair workscopes. Sample parts highlighting various design, material, and machining techniques are available in the booth.

“In addition to providing MRO services, ATS also offers maintenance prevention strategies to airlines and OEMs,” stated Ben Tschirhart, VP of Engineering Solutions. “Our work starts with listening to our customers and assessing needs together. It’s how our FAA approved PMA Portfolio grew from three parts in 2015 to 162 unique ATS part numbers covering 185 OEM part numbers today.”
