PART recently completed the Heavy Maintenance & Modifications on the second MD-83 aircraft for Aserca Airlines. Aserca has contracted four aircraft with PART with the potential of four additional aircraft spanning into the 3rd quarter of this year.
PART began hiring A & P mechanics, structure specialists, and avionics personnel in January and into the month of February. As their hangar space of over 300,000 square feet fills up, PART is eager to expand their work force into multiple shifts.
PART is in the process of a complete composite and accessory shop overhaul. They are adding filtered air, positive pressure, temperature and humidity control, and drop-down vacuum lines.
