Aircraft maintenance providers . . . No reason not to buy Canadian! by Robert Seaman The AMO industry in Canada has always been somewhat smaller in scale than its US counterparts. Obviously, we have fewer aircraft operators and a smaller base of aircraft in Canada to deal with. That aside, it is no small coincidence that many of the leading OEM-approved US maintenance repair service centres are located in sunny and warm locations — which has led more than one corporate aircraft owner to find that an aircraft always requires its major “annual” during our cold harsh winters. More than one “C” registered aircraft seems to find its way to Fort Lauderdale between the months of January and March — the crew enjoys a vacation while the aircraft undergoes its major annual inspection and Service Bulletin/Service Advisory (SB/SA) calls.
