RELATED: What’s the difference between a DER Repair and FAA Approved Repairs?

Who is ACP?


ACP is a Class 1, 2 and 3 FAA repair station certified by AS9110. The core business of ACP involves a variety of electro-mechanical accessories, such as pressure and temperature sensors and switches, tack generators, fire detectors and indicators.

But the majority of ACP work is done by DERs.

DERs, or Designated Engineering Representatives, are expert aerospace engineers who specialize in overhauling expendable parts that either have no repair manual, or aren’t supported any longer by the original manufacturer (OEM).

ACP's DER team is able to quickly and inexpensively repair costly expendable aircraft parts. Our specialized engineers have been approved by the FAA, and have a longstanding track record of being leaders in the industry. That's how we are Class 1, 2 & 3 rated.

Why Choose ACP?

With over 100 years of combined industry experience, the Aereos companies remain committed to learning and continuously seeking opportunities to master new and better methods — not only in repair and service technology, but also to advance turn times, ensure accuracy, improve customer service and add value.

ACP works on a variety of parts ranging from Torque motors and  LVDT’s (linear variable differential transformer). These can cost our customers $15,000-$40,000 dollars. With a ACP DERs, it's possible to cut these costly expenses in half or more. Why replace a part with a new, and costly component, when you can repair it for half the cost?
