Mid-Canada Mod Center and MRO provider JD Aero have created an alliance to offer a broad range of modification and engineering services for the worldwide regional airline industry. The partnership also will provide support to special-missions operators of regional aircraft.
“This working partnership will see two of the most experienced companies in the industry working together to deliver innovative solutions for our joint clients,” said Mid-Canada president Bill Arsenault. “Discussions with [JD Aero managing partners] Don [McNabb] and Julian [Chin] quickly made us realize that JD Aero was exactly the type of company we want to get alongside. This perfectly complements what we already do for regional operators.”
Mid-Canada offers avionics integration expertise along with a portfolio of STC packages for regional aircraft and an expanded scope of avionics repair capabilities from locations at Toronto Pearson International Airport and Region of Waterloo International Airport. The company’s engineering division, ADS, provides design, engineering, and airworthiness support and structural repairs approvals through its Transport Canada Design Approval Organization.
JD Aero operates an MRO with 81,000 sq ft of hangar space in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and its services include scheduled heavy maintenance on Dash 8-, Canadair Regional Jet-, and Boeing 737-series transport aircraft, as well as Cessna and Embraer 170/175 aircraft. It can also perform complete structures and avionics support.
