Combined with our Exeter operations, our Belfast division puts us in a prime position to serve our growing customer base to the highest of standards, with around-the-clock customer service, cost-competitive support, and optimum turn-time.”
Dublin Aerospace operates a 4-bay Base Maintenance facility in Dublin Airport that can presently handle approx. 70 aircraft per annum (A320, A330, 737 families), an APU overhaul centre that can handle 200 APUs a year. As a home-grown Irish business, Dublin Aerospace successfully competes on the global stage, with major Landing Gear customers from the USA, UK, Malaysia, Thailand, Egypt, and Europe.
The company operates a state-of-the-art Landing Gear facility in Ashbourne, Ireland. The facility provides maintenance on aircraft landing gear where it overhauls up to 350 B737 and A320 legs per year. Dublin Aerospace’s UK subsidiary, Exeter Aerospace, commenced operations in 2021 and offers Base Maintenance services across 6 hangar bays for the ATR and DeHavilland DHC-8 TurboProps together with the Embraer Regional Jets.
