AA-MRO's mechanics are Airframe and Powerplant licensed by the United States FAA. The average mechanic has over 16 years of experience throughout the system. American is fully staffed with Aircraft and Powerplant Engineers capable of providing all your needs — including DER regulatory, engineering or maintenance planning services. We are also FAR 145 and EASA qualified, and customer equipment can easily be added to the program.

Even better, AA-MRO routinely receives maintenance recognition awards from regulatory agencies and OEMs, such as the FAA Diamond Award (maintaining a 25 percent minimum of mechanics FAA trained), Rolls-Royce's Three-Shaft Centre of Excellence Award and Excellence Award ratings during FAA audits.

Our engineering staff continuously strives to improve performance and achieve cost savings through implementation of both FAA approved Parts Material Authorizations (PMA) and use of Designated Engineering Representative (DER) authorities. We also utilize Continuous Improvement (a form of Six Sigma), Lean Manufacturing Processes, Point-Of-Use Tooling and Parts Kitting to ensure efficient production of aircraft, engine and component repair at our overhaul facilities in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Fort Worth, Texas; and Kansas City, Missouri.
