Everett, Washington (April 25, 2022) ― Aviation Technical Services (ATS) today added its Cockpit Utility Light demonstrator display to its list of products being featured at Aviation Week’s MRO Americas 2022 show opening April 26 in Dallas, Texas. The Cockpit Utility Light is nearing FAA approval as a PMA alternative designed to provide aircraft operators and owners an all-around better solution, including increased reliability, reduced total product lifetime costs, and better performance than existing offerings. ATS, an award-winning provider of airframe MRO and component support services, will be calling Booth 3427 its home and invites show attendees to stop by.

“ATS continues to expand its Engineering Solutions portfolio by listening and partnering with airlines to solve for pain points,” stated Ben Tschirhart, VP of Engineering Solutions. “We focus on a range of scenarios for our customers: from maintenance prevention, to shortening maintenance span and product lead times, all while providing significant cost savings.”

On Display:

Cockpit Utility Light offers a plug-and-play and mix-and-match solution for existing lights due to (pending) PMA designation, meaning there is no need for STC paperwork or expensive fleet campaigns. The new ATS Cockpit Utility Light utilizes LED bulbs instead of incandescent eliminating the need for replacements bulbs and is available for various Boeing 737, 757 and 767 aircraft models.

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.
