Saudi Aircraft Accessories and Components Company (AACC), a subsidiary of Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI), has announced the signing of a four-year partnership agreement with Safran Landing Systems to expand its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) capabilities to offer commercial aircraft and military rotary landing gears overhaul services in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
As one of the largest MRO service providers in the Middle East, AACC currently offers landing gear MRO services for F-15, C-130 and Typhoon military fixed-wing aircraft. Thanks to this partnership with Safran Landing Systems, AACC will significantly enhance its MRO capabilities in the Gulf region.
In addition to contributing to the MRO development in the Kingdom, the strategic partnership will lead to the creation of new quality jobs for Saudis and the transfer of new skills and knowledge, as well as generating additional business in France and the United Kingdom.
This contract will also benefit from Landing LifeTM, the support and services offer, which covers all Safran Landing Systems’ after-sales business and aims.
