DEERFIELD BEACH, FL – Aug. 24, 2007 – Aero Precision Repair and Overhaul, Co., also known as A-PRO, announced today that it will begin overhaul and repair services on the Piaggio P180 Avanti landing gear and related accessories. A-PRO received approval to perform this work from both Piaggio, the manufacturer of the aircraft, and Messier Dowty, the manufacturer of the landing gear.

A-PRO has extensive overhaul experience gained from its involvement in the Dassault Falcon, ATR, Dornier, Sikorsky and Embraer programs. A-PRO was selected for the Piaggio Avanti aircraft because of its well established reputation for supporting corporate and regional sized aircraft.

Mr. Alex Tearle President, A-PRO Quotes: “The Piaggio program is a good fit for us in many ways. This high end turboprop is a good stable-mate to our current corporate programs that have yielded extensive experience with landing gears of this size. The proximity of Piaggio’s U.S. Corporate Headquarters in West Palm Beach, Fl. also enhances the day to day working relationship.

A-PRO was established in 1989 as a joint venture between Dassault Falcon Jet and Messier as an O.E.M. authorized repair facility. A-PRO has overhauled more than 2,200 landing gears and processed over 40,000 components since inception in its company-owned 41,000 square foot facility in Florida.
