MAES launches at the MRO 2017

Rebekah Valero-Lee Aerospace and Defence


New Zealand born Scott joins us with 20 years’ experience in aircraft maintenance, where he has held a wide range of roles including licensed aircraft engineering roles, management and senior management positions. Scott has formerly run maintenance facilities for both Monarch and Thomas Cook in Manchester, most recently as Thomas Cook’s EASA Form 4 accountable General Manager for Base and Line Maintenance activities. Now with us as a Director for Morson Aircraft Engineering Services (MAES), Scott brings a great deal of experience and knowledge toward developing our maintenance services and MRO activities.

Last month, we launched MAES (Morson Aircraft Engineering Services), the latest offering of Morson Group at the MRO Europe. The event saw over 7,000 industry experts, airlines and suppliers come together to learn about, test and purchase new MRO solutions and services.

MAES is a subsidiary of the Morson Group that channels all our aviation services into one brand, with the services including: resource provision, EASA Part-21J design and the soon to be established EASA Part 145 maintenance services. MAES draws together these neighboring activities in order to offer our aerospace clients a single point of contact with a broader and more comprehensive service offering.

In relation to MAES’ key services and their Directors:

Resource Provision

Neil Dunthorne from Morson International, has over 20 years’ experience and specialises in the supply of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) personnel. He specifically works with Airbus and Boeing fleets, military fixed wing and rotary aircraft with approximately 4,000 personnel on assignment.

EASA Part-21J Design

Gareth Beck from Morson Projects focuses on Part 21-J design services. Having worked closely with a number of aerospace OEMs over the past 35 years, his team has an extensive history of aircraft design and modification programs. To further extend their capability and independence in this area, Gareth’s team recently added EASA Part-21J authorisation to deliver minor and major repairs and changes to aircraft large and small, including avionics, cabin, electrical, environmental control and structural.

Maintenance Services

With over 4,000 contractors working in aerospace, Morson’s engineers have a great deal of experience in aviation. However, these maintenance services have always been carried out under the management and approval of our clients. Going forward, our strategic direction is to build on this experience and extend our maintenance services capability. In this respect, Scott Wells and his team are in the process of establishing our EASA 145 maintenance approval. When and where approved, our EASA 145 approval will enable us to provide complete maintenance solutions for our clients. Examples of these services include AOG (Aircraft on Ground) support, Line Maintenance and modification.

Together, the three key arms of MAES allow us to resource it, design it, fit it and maintain it. In this respect, MAES shifts us further toward a single source supplier producing an unrivalled service in the MRO market.
