There is a significant impact on the resource requirements to keep the U.S. military's vast fleet of aircraft operationally ready. That has created an increased need for civilian maintenance repair overhaul (MRO) facilities to work on military aircraft. Subcontract resources can provide both financial and operational efficiencies to benefit taxpayers, in addition to lessening the burden on existing military infrastructure.

An MRO facility designed for a Cessna Citation may appear fine for an F-16, but that is not necessarily the case. There are a multitude of mutually exclusive requirements that apply to civilian and military aircraft. MRO facility owners should align themselves with equipment suppliers that can collaboratively develop effective and efficient solutions that allow you to meet today’s needs, while also planning for the future.
