Antavia, a unit of AMETEK MRO, has been selected as the provider of wheels and brakes maintenance for the Airbus Beluga XL.
Antavia has a long relationship with Airbus. It began providing maintenance services for Airbus oversize transport aircraft, the Super Guppy, in 1992. The support continued when the five strong fleet of BelugaST entered into service and has now extended to the Beluga XL fleet.
With more than 30 years of reliable service, Antavia is a leader in wheels and brakes repair as well as overhaul. In the last five years, more than 17,000 wheels and 2,500 brakes have been released from the company’s dedicated workshops.
“We are very proud to be contributing to the wheels and brakes maintenance of both the Beluga ST and XL aircrafts, two of the most voluminous cargo holds of any civil or military aircraft flying today,” said Laurent Bouissou, Managing Director of Antavia. “It is a business that places the utmost importance on regularity of services and on-time performance, which are values we share.”
Along with wheels and brakes, Antavia’s capabilities include repair and overhaul services for cabin equipment, water/wastewater systems, electrical power generation, electrical rewinds, electromechanical actuators, lights, electronics, hydraulic equipment, wheels and brakes, and engine accessories.
