Four aero engineering giants shake up the modifications market
January 30, 2019 / ADAM GAVINE
Four major aviation engineering companies are forming an alliance in the field of aircraft modifications, having signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to form the Independent Aircraft Modifier Alliance (IAMA). The four partners are EAD Aerospace, Envoy Aerospace, Etihad Airways Engineering and Lufthansa Technik. The aim of IAMA is to encourage aircraft owners and operators to modify and modernize their fleets with high-quality equipment and rigorous inspections, irrespective of which IAMA member provides the engineering services, enabling them to decide objectively and independently on the best possible modification solution for their fleet, regardless of a specific provider.
