Fmr NW DLH Maint Facility To Serve AC

Tue Nov 20, 2012 7:52 pm

Was looking for something else when I stumbled on this several week old article in the Star Tribune stating that Air Canada will, through AAR Corp, be maintaining their Airbus fleet at the former NW maintenance facility in DLH.

I'm very glad to see the facility will be getting used!

Wow, good. I remember the design process. Glad someone is making use of the Iron Range Facility!

Aveos, which had MRO facilities in YUL, YWG and YVR, closed its doors in March. Since then, AC maintenance has been divided between two small MROs in Quebec and facilities outside Canada (mostly in the U.S., but also SIN, HKG and DUB for 77W/Ls, 763s and A333s).
Empty vessels make the most noise.
