Ron Farr, Founder and CEO
Amid the onslaught of COVID-19, the aerospace and defense industry is looking for strong support from the industry players to stand back on its feet. Stepping up to the challenge is U.S. Aerospace Corp (USAC), a veteran-owned company specialized in aviation component maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). USAC has an impeccable track record of serving all the critical aviation market segments with integrity, dedication, and trust. Every employee at the firm is committed to the unified goal of safety, quality, reliability, quick turnaround, responsive customer service, and competitive pricing. USAC listens to its clients' requirements and focuses on providing MRO services for avionics, instruments and accessories of various aircraft types. "It is these value-driven work ethics that have catapulted our position in the industry as the go-to partner for our customers’ unique requirements," says Ron Farr, Founder and CEO, USAC.
In the last 12 months, cargo and corporate operators have stumbled and recovered quickly from the losses. But commercial and regional operators continue to incur huge losses. With its competitive pricing and an unmatched turnaround time, USAC is committed to helping commercial and regional operators revive their aircraft using reliable suppliers providing quality parts. With on-time delivery of serviceable parts, the operators can maintain their airplane fleet in pre-determined conditions of airworthiness to safely transport passengers and cargo.
To assist its broad customer base of parts suppliers, FBOs, and small to mid-sized operators with low cash reserves, USAC has launched special programs through which the customers need only to make a deposit when a repair order for an airplane component is approved. This has helped several customers revamp their services and/ or airplane component stores with minimal investment to meet their cargo delivery deadlines, and manage working capital better. Moreover, customers have reported a considerable improvement in shorter repair times and lesser cash flow concerns.
USAC's strength and commitment to come to the rescue of an ailing industry doesn't come out of thin air. The company holds Class 1-2-3-4 unlimited ratings for Instruments, Class 1-2-3 unlimited ratings for radio, and Class 1-2 unlimited ratings for both mechanical and electrical accessories. The firm is among the few MROs to have earned such categorized ratings for instruments, radio, and other airplane accessories. USAC is a FAA-certified 145 Repair Station and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approved service provider known worldwide for its expertise and high-quality work in the MRO spectrum of avionics, instruments, and accessories.
USAC is aware of the fact that many of the freight operators use legacy aircraft to transport cargo even today. To that end, it employs knowledgeable, experienced technicians who are proficient in supporting legacy aircraft, and this gives the firm an additional advantage in the aftermarket for such aircraft.
A classic entrepreneur, Farr brings to the table nearly 30 years of strong, continuous, hands-on leadership since founding the company in 1986. To take USAC to the zenith of success, Farr built a 17,000-square-foot facility located in Tennessee with a full array of advanced testing equipment, including calibration equipment with backup of critical instruments, and recently obtained air data test equipment. The facility comprises two separate buildings to ensure a clean working environment for electronic work and a separate workspace for mechanical components.
The company's future strategy is to remain client-centric and expand its operations further into Europe, Asia and South America. Besides, the firm has invested considerable capital, turning resources into new capabilities to meet client demands. "Our roadmap strategy is always to stay close to our clients, listen to their challenges, and provide the best support possible," ends Farr.
