RAS Features German Quality MRO, New Aircraft Services, New Avionics

Regional Airlines Can Learn More at Berlin ERA and London MRO Conventions.
Mönchengladbach, September 2015

Rheinland Air Service (RAS), a leading MRO provider for European regional airlines, will be featuring their German quality MRO, including new in-house shop capabilities, along with Garmin avionics, at both of October’s important aviation conventions:

ERA General Assembly 2015

  • October 13–15 in Berlin, RAS Booth #A1

MRO Europe 2015

  • October 14–15 in London, RAS Booth #496

MRO – Made in Germany

Regional airlines have long relied on RAS’ precision German maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) of ATR 42/72 and other commercial aircraft. Complementing their official ATR network partner capabilities, RAS also provides EASA Part 145 and FAA approved MRO on various aircraft. Airbus A318–321, Boeing 737-Classic to NG, Bombardier DHC-8, Fokker F27 Mk050, Jetstream, and Shorts are among the wide variety of aircraft that RAS quickly and expertly services.

Over the past eighteen months, RAS facility expansions effectively doubled the size of their state-of-the-art Central European MRO headquarters in Mönchengladbach, near Düsseldorf, Germany. The latest expansions made room for more aircraft, even faster and higher quality MRO, along with room for new shops that provide specialized MRO services.

New Shops Offer Aircraft Protection and Comfort

RAS just added two new in-house shops to their broad range of MRO services. One shop produces tailor-made covers that help protect expensive aircraft. The other new shop offers cockpit seat repairs, along with cabin interior layout reconfigurations.

Precision Avionics – RAS Introduces the Garmin GTN 725 Retrofit

Using the advanced yet intuitive Garmin GTN 725, airlines can fly shorter, more direct routes in European airspaces using P-RNAV procedures. ATR 42/72 operators can gain additional access to airports with higher levels of operating requirements. As an authorized Garmin aviation dealer, RAS sells, supports, and installs the GTN 725 featured at the conventions.

Quality and Variety of Aircraft Parts

Fast, reliable MRO also depends on having all the necessary parts on hand. In addition to their huge warehouse of new parts, RAS buys and has disassembled 16 surplus ATR aircraft for parts. This specialized “part out” service provides RAS customers with unique access to countless hard-to-find, tested, fully refurbished, and recertified parts.

Visit the RAS Booths to Learn More

RAS invites attendees of both the ERA and MRO conventions to visit the RAS booths to learn more about how RAS can improve an airline’s fleet performance and the bottom line.

“When they look closer, the region’s airlines discover that RAS offers them many unique advantages,” said COO Walter Lange. “Our flexibility, convenience, competence, and customer-focused services clearly set us apart.”
