Landing Gear Services UK
A leading landing gear specialist in Europe
Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK is an international maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service provider based in London, UK. Originally founded as Hawker Pacific Aerospace and renamed by Lufthansa Technik AG in March 2011, the company has specialized in the maintenance of landing gears and related components. With an annual throughput of 400 overhauls, Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK is one of the leading landing gear specialists in Europe.
The fully owned subsidiary offers FAA- and EASA-certified (US Federal Aviation Administration; European Aviation Safety Agency) landing gear repairs and overhaul services for all major commercial and regional aircraft on a total floor space of about 13,500 square meters. All processes – from cleaning to corrosion and flaw-crack testing, metal cutting, chrome-plating and painting – are carried out in-house. In addition, the around 260 staff also repair and overhaul other aircraft components for various international customers.
Situated close to London Heathrow airport, Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK specializes in Boeing aircraft types. The company is not only the first independent provider to offer Boeing 777 landing gear overhauls, but it also supplies three different exchange landing gear sets for the three weight categories of the aircraft type. Its product portfolio also includes flap repairs and overhauls. Once again, all the services provided by Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK in London are performed in-house.
Lufthansa Technik Landing Gear Services UK operates as a full-service provider. Over 70 complete landing gear sets are available for replacement and loan purposes. As a Designated Engineering Representative (DER) of the US Federal Aviation Authority, the company is authorized to develop its own repair methods. The company has its own Aircraft on Ground (AOG) team on call ready to assist customers on-site. Over 40,000 spare parts are available at any time, either individually or in complete sets. Thanks to the AOG teams and the use of replacement components (line replaceable units), no aircraft has to stand idle for longer than is absolutely necessary.
