ExelTech Aerospace Inc., Canada’s largest publicly-listed commercial aircraft MRO organization, has signed a long-term contract to provide Bombardier Dash 8 regional turboprop aircraft maintenance services for Piedmont Airlines, which operates as US Airways Express. Piedmont is a wholly-owned subsidiary of US Airways Group, Inc., the sixth-largest airline in the US.

Under the exclusive agreement, valued at up to $17 million, ExelTech will perform major maintenance, including structural inspections and repairs, in its Dash 8 Heavy Maintenance Facility at Quebec City’s Jean Lesage International Airport. The initial term is 30 months, with an option to extend for a further two years.

ExelTech first began providing maintenance services for Piedmont in April 2006. Under this new contract, ExelTech commits to provide between one and two lines of continuous nose-to-tail maintenance until September 2009.
