MHI RJ Aviation Group (MHIRJ), the largest regional maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service provider in the U.S., is pleased to announce today that it has signed a three-year Aircraft Heavy Maintenance Service Agreement with Piedmont Airlines. A wholly owned subsidiary of the American Airlines Group, Piedmont operates more than 300 daily departures to 70 destinations and employs more than 10,000 aviation professionals.
A crucial part of MHIRJ’s growth strategy and commitment to broadening its markets, maintenance work will be conducted on Piedmont’s fleet of Embraer E145 aircraft at the Bridgeport WV facility. Under the terms of the agreement, MHIRJ will operate a single dedicated nose-to-tail heavy maintenance line at the service center with the potential of adding more lines in the future. The first Piedmont aircraft is scheduled to enter the facility in early May.
