AR Aviation Services- Reliability is our Reputation.



We've set high standards since we opened our doors and excelled at keeping our customers flying.  AR Aviation Services (AR) is an FAA 145 and EASA repair station established in 2008.  Our reputation for reliability has been built on years of experience, integrity, and uncompromising attention to detail. AR focuses not just on the repair itself, but on every step from the moment a customer calls to when the part lands to the moment it ships.   We have searched high and low for the best employees and honestly have some of the greatest in the industry.  The Pride our team carries with "Taking care of the Customer" is really unmatched.  We repair and overhaul many items successfully, but scrapping parts is far from what we want to do so we go above and beyond, thinking outside the box to keep parts flying per regulatory standards.  All of these characteristics make for a winning combination.
