Aircraft Maintenance & Turbine Engine Repair in Fort Lauderdale, FL & Chicago, IL

ortex Aviation takes immense pride in providing its clients with unparalleled expertise in FAA and EASA certified engine maintenance repair and troubleshooting for today’s modern turbine engines. Our global AOG repair and maintenance solutions are designed to effectively reduce maintenance costs while ensuring uninterrupted operations of our clients’ aircraft. To further ensure timely service, we have established four strategically located hospital shops in the US and UK, in places such as Fort Lauderdale, FL, Chicago, IL, Shannon and Dublin Ireland that cater to the needs of the commercial, cargo, and regional jet aircraft markets. We have fully trained OEM technicians who work around the clock to provide quick turn solutions to all our clients minimizing shop visit time and costs while maximizing “On-Wing” time keeping your aircraft flying with less time on the ground, maximizing your profits.

Our in-house capabilities in our Florida and Chicago facilities set the standard for quick turn repairs. Hospital shop repairs are a great advantage for saving time and heavy repair costs compared to induction into a large MRO. The key element is the quick turn in getting the engine back on wing with minimum impact to operation and extending on-wing life of your engine.

We customize and generate specific work scopes to address issues related to the designated module or at the component level. Engines inducted to our hospital line will be inspected to the required OEM criteria while concentrating on the issue of unserviceability and always maintain proper overall inspections for final certification for return to service. Our OEM-trained technicians are certified in these specific tasks where experience is the key to making decisions without making costly impacts to the bottom line and safety.
