Aspire MRO has officially launched its widebody MRO and passenger-to-freighter (P2F) conversion services, backed by leading asset manager Fortress Investment Group LLC.
Founded by experienced executives in the industry, Aspire will operate six (6) bays available for heavy widebody maintenance and B777 P2F conversions at the former American Airlines maintenance facility located at Fort Worth Alliance Airport in Fort Worth, Texas.
With a dedicated 840,000 sqft facility, Aspire said it is positioned to become a world-class leading heavy maintenance and P2F provider for both domestic and international operators.
The company said it has secured a substantial long-term contract to perform P2F conversions and MRO-related work for Mammoth Freighters, and it expects the Alliance Airport facility to become a long-term hub for aircraft maintenance, bringing significant job creation to the area.
Aspire President & CEO, Phil Bathurst states, “With a strong backlog of work, an experienced leadership team, an impressive facility at the premier Fort Worth Alliance Airport, and the financial backing of a leading global alternative asset manager with decades of experience in our sector, I fully expect Aspire to become the pre-eminent MRO providing conversion and maintenance services to widebody aircraft in North America.”
