First Aviation Services named Aviation Week's 'MRO of the Year'

First Aviation Services Inc. has been selected to receive the 2016 MRO of the Year Award for Military Center of Excellence from Aviation Week, the company said.

The company was singled out from maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) industry nominees and will receive the award during an April 5th ceremony at the MRO Americas Conference to be held in Dallas, Texas.

Aviation Week editors selected First Aviation for the award due to the company´s efforts to eliminate waste in Department of Defense (DOD) maintenance spending by reducing sole source contracts and promoting competition using the Government´s rights to maintenance and repair technical data.
