Both Airborne Services and Specto Aerospace are independent Part 145 approved Maintenance Organizations in the field of maintenance, repair and overhaul of high-end composite aircraft structures and components. Airborne specializes in helicopter rotor blades and structures repair whereas Specto has a focus on the repair of radomes, nacelles and flight controls for fixed wing aircraft. The combined Dutch company is an independent component MRO with a significant market share, offering short Turn Around Times and competitive prices to the market, while having strategic agreements with several OEMs.

“I am confident on the merge of these two unique companies”, says Jeroen Mast, founder and Managing Director of Specto Aerospace. “We have known each other as entrepreneurs for more than 15 years and have the same business approach”.

Specto Aerospace has a state of the art facility at Amsterdam Lelystad Airport reflecting the ambition to provide MRO services to manufacturer standards.

“We are convinced that the growth potential of Airborne Services is higher in the new setting” adds Arno van Mourik, CEO of Airborne International. “Our group will increase focus on the activities in automation and digitization of composite production processes”.

Airborne Services has a dedicated repair facility at the Main Support Base of the Royal Netherlands Airforce (RNLAF) including clean room, paint shop and rotor blade balancing tools.

“With the synergy of Specto Aerospace we will offer a larger range of capabilities to our national and international customers, while adding more OEM partnerships in the nearby future”, concludes Marco Brinkman.
