Aerocycle Inc.’s disassembly and demolition operations at the Mirabel International Airport have been accredited by the Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (AFRA); and its aircraft parts management operations have received accreditation from the Aviation Suppliers Association (ASA).

“As a certified disassembly and demolition company, we adhere to AFRA’s Best Management Practices, the only industry-developed standard for aircraft disassembly and aircraft materials recycling,” said Ron Haber, CEO and founder, Aerocycle. “As an ASA-100 accredited aircraft parts supplier, we manage aircraft components under a strictly controlled process.”

Based in Montréal, Quebec, Aerocycle was created in 2013 following a pilot project for aircraft disassembly conducted at the Mirabel International Airport (YMX) in collaboration with Montréal-based air carrier Air Transat.

“Our location at Mirabel International Airport provides significant advantages for customers,” said Sébastien Bérubé, operations director, Aerocycle. “They can rely on highly specialized, fully accredited and environmentally responsible aircraft end-of-life solutions – now offered in Canada – in addition to achieving considerable cost savings.”


The company’s mission is to provide the best environmentally responsible aircraft disassembly, demolition and recycling services through the pooling of operational, business, technological and environmental expertise.
