CTC Aviation: aircraft maintenance contract with Aeromotive

CTC Aviation signs long-term aircraft maintenance contract with Aeromotive

Hamilton, 4 July 2014 – CTC Aviation Training New Zealand Limited (CTC Aviation) and Aeromotive Limited have signed a four-year agreement to provide aircraft maintenance support for CTC Aviation’s 38 aircraft fleet of DA20 Katanas, Cessna 172s and DA42 Twin Star aircraft.

The total contract value is around $1.8 million per annum.

Peter Stockwell, chief operating officer of CTC Aviation New Zealand, said the contract between CTC Aviation and Aeromotive Limited builds on a successful nine years of aircraft maintenance activity between the two companies.

“CTC Aviation is the largest flight training organisation in the country, and our ongoing commitment to deliver industry-leading, high quality airline pilot training can only happen through partnerships with other industry-leading companies like Aeromotive with its highly skilled engineering workforce,” said Mr Stockwell.

As part of the agreement, CTC Aviation would continue to provide Aeromotive Limited with secure hangar capacity at its Hamilton Airport facility for its maintenance work. This facility, coupled with Aeromotive’s other facilities at Hamilton Airport, ensures that very little work has to be outsourced to complete major inspections or repairs.

Aeromotive is a certified provider of aircraft maintenance services, and CEO of Aeromotive, Don McCracken, said their work includes around the clock airframe repairs, and routine inspections and servicing.

"This agreement represents a tremendous opportunity for Aeromotive, a leader in aircraft maintenance solutions in New Zealand and the South Pacific, to continue to work in partnership with CTC Aviation,” said Mr McCracken.

The new contract will ensure a significant economic benefit remains in the Waikato region, and it cements the region’s place as a major provider of aerospace capability for New Zealand.
