Owner-operator-produced parts are almost a DIY approach for airlines to get quality parts faster and cheaper.
As airlines grapple with parts availability and costs, some are taking remedial action through owner-operator-produced parts (OOPP)—also known as owner- produced parts (OPP).
Sheffield Aerospace enters into a comprehensive, multi-year agreement with American Airlines to provide turnkey support for the airline’s alternate materials strategy, using an on-site team based at the airline’s Tulsa Maintenance Base.
In the American Airlines / US Airways merger and integration, a thorough best-practices analysis concludes with the recommendation that the “legacy American Airlines process”, as stewarded by Sheffield Aerospace, would be adopted as the go-forward process for the integrated airline’s alternate parts program.
