Our Mission

Welcome To Southern Air Repair

Innovative Engineering, Aviation Machining and Welding

Here at Southern Air Repair, our team brings Innovative Engineering and Aviation Machining to a whole other level, including our Welding and CNC experience to accomplish our component piece part repairs. Southern Air Repair was established in 1997, by two aviation pioneers looking to better serve the airline industry. First located Coral Springs, Florida, we made our final frontier by moving the industry to Greenville, South Carolina. This year, we celebrate 21 years of excellence while servicing airlines, regional carriers, and 145 repair stations with the highest level of experience and quality.

Our mission is to take non-serviceable/scrap accessory parts and reclaim them to airworthy condition. This process reduces BER’s, turnaround times, and has a high success rate while competing with prices of new manufactured parts. We have established a reputation for accomplishing repairs that were once considered nonviable, which has saved our customers millions of dollars in replacement costs.

Southern Air Repair has developed over 125 FAA approved component piece part repairs with concentration in CSD’s, IDG’s, Fuel and Pneumatic accessory parts.  We offer full CNC lathe and mill support. Recent jobs include Gulfstream Wifi antenna mount, ATR-72 flap cam guide, ID6 rotor balance weight holder and Axial fan housing liner.

We would love the opportunity to show your company the high success rate that we maintain with our current customers.

-Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI) detects surface cracks.
-Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) detects surface cracks in magnetic materials.
-A Milling Machine is a vertical precision machine that offers various cutting tools to perform operations such as plain milling, face milling, end milling, and threading.
-A Lathe is a precision machine that holds and spins the work piece while a cutting tool can perform various metal removing operations such as turning, grooving, chamfering, and facing.  

-A Jig Bore is a precision machine resembling a vertical milling machine, equipped with sensitive adjustments for the table and the position of the cutting tool, and used especially for locating and drilling or boring holes.

A Jig Grinder is a machine tool used for grinding complex shapes and holes where the highest degrees of accuracy and finish are required. The jig grinder is very similar to a jig borer, in that the table positioning and spindles are very accurate.

-Honing is a machining process that uses a precision tool with a mechanically rotated abrasive tip, for enlarging holes to precise dimensions and may also improve  surface texture.

-Plasma Spray is the application of a protective hard coating to a part by feeding a powder into an ionized gas stream.

-Ultrasonic Cleaning is the removal of surface deposits and entrapped material by use of high frequency sound waves. Cleaning is performed in a liquid bath that keeps the removed material suspended due to transmitted sound energy.
-Passivation is an acidic pH liquid bath that makes (a metal or other substance) unreactive by altering the surface layer or coating the surface with a thin inert layer.

An epoxy coating is the use of epoxy compounds as a coating or paint. It is generally two parts, which are mixed prior to application and consist of an epoxy resin that is cross-linked with a coreactant or hardener. Epoxy coatings are formulated based on the end product’s performance requirements.
-Brazing is the process of forming, fixing, or joining by soldering with an alloy of copper and zinc at high temperature.

-Thermal Spray is the process of using a fuel/oxygen flame to melt and propel metal to build up surface size or provide protection.

-Welding is the joining of metal pieces by heating the surface to optimal melting temperatures.

-Lapping is the process of polishing parts to a number of light bands using a rotating abrasive disk and weights.

-Computer Aided Design
-Computer Aided Manufacturing

-Balancing machine is used for finding balance in rotating parts such as turbines, fans, and rotors.
