Aircraft maintenance is critical to ensuring the continuing airworthiness of AAM aircraft, and the contribution of such a key MRO player is a valuable addition to the platform.”

We see AAM technology as a key enabler for connecting regional communities, improving supply chains, creating Australian jobs, and helping to reduce Australia’s carbon footprint.”
