PART (Pacific Aerospace Resources and Technologies, LLC.), an ARC Aerospace Industries company recently attended the Japan Aviation Conference, based upon “The Future of Aerospace in Japan” and taking place in Tokyo on December 3rd of this year. Guests were honored with the presence of representatives of the US and Japanese government including Fukushiro Nukaga, Member of the House of Representatives along with Akihiro Nishimura, the Vice Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism. David Green, CEO and President of PART was invited to be one of the keynote speakers along with several significant contributors to the industry. A few of these being Clive Richardson, the Director of Middle East, Asia and Africa, Aviation Week and Space Technology and Chris Doan, Chairman and CEO of Team SAI. Denis Boulet, Business Advisor of PART spoke on behalf of Mr. Green, expressing his views on the challenges and opportunities of operating a MRO in Japan.
Due to the rapid fleet growth projected within the next 20 years, Japan is in need of an MRO infrastructure able to support such expansion. PART believes in succeeding by providing one stop maintenance solutions for aircraft owners and lessors. Mr. Boulet expressed David’s thoughts on there being no difference in Asia, this being the future for MROs to survive and succeed. In addition, strong in-house engineering capabilities will create more opportunities and improve the bottom line. He also mentioned Mr. Green’s plan to recruit mechanics in China for the upcoming opening of an MRO to PART’s current MRO facility located in the United States, providing the training needed to achieve the same level of quality, safety, and efficiency. This training plan has been developed to offset the limited resources of skilled aviation labor, which is a major challenge within Japan as well when establishing an MRO business.
PART (Pacific Aerospace Resources & Technologies LLC), an ARC Aerospace Industries Company attended the 6th Annual China Commercial Aircraft Forum 2014 which took place in late November and was held in Shanghai China. David Green, Chairman and CEO of PART was invited to join a panel discussion that focused on the topic of “How to catch the Ample Opportunities in China’s Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering Industry”. Mr. Green addressed various challenges and opportunities for the Chinese MRO, emphasizing the clear advantages of PART creating one stop maintenance solutions for aircraft owners and lessors. He had stated that “there will be a large number of 10-15 year old commercial aircraft coming out of lease within the next few years in China. However, most of the Chinese lessors and airlines do not have the experience to properly value and reposition this aircraft.” Mr. Green pointed out that there will be tremendous opportunities for freighter conversion, especially since the current aircraft being converted are generally over 20 years old and that there will be a need for a new narrow body aircraft model to be converted.
Along with these opportunities, Mr. Green highlighted the challenges to be faced with the lack of experience and efficiency from the CAAC on handling the certification process, citing examples that included connectivity on the aircraft and interior modification certification. This has prevented many areas of the Chinese aviation industry from rapid growth.
PART has recently completed maintenance in support of another South America Presidential B737-500 aircraft. The Boeing 737-500 aircraft left PART’s facility on Friday, June 6th after a complete transformation including a C-check and full interior restoration, new paint, along with complete Satcom and IFE upgrade.

Principals of PART received a Chinese Delegation from City of Qingdao, China on January 3, 2014.

Annual traffic projects will exceed 38 million people.
The city and provincial (Shandong Province) officials have made tremendous efforts in growing the aviation sector of Qingdao. One of the most important agenda items of the delegation during this trip was to attract PART to open an MRO in the new airport. After touring PART’s entire operation, Major Mr. Zhang, De Ping spent two days with PART’s principals, David Green and Janet Vincent, for detailed discussions on the potential expansion of PART.
“We are very excited about the opportunity with China, and especially with the City of Qingdao, which happens to be our Managing Member Janet’s hometown,” said David. “We hope to open our Chinese Division in 2014. Besides Qingdao, we have also been in discussions with the City of Tianjin”.
