Comprehensive repair capability
The Vallair team in Montpellier is experienced in major repairs, skin and frame changes (such as frame 16 and 18 on the A320), as well as cockpit window frames which can generally be performed in under twelve days. Minor composite repair operations can be carried out while the aircraft is undergoing maintenance. Larger repairs would typically be transferred to our Aerostructures facility in Chateauroux, France, where capabilities cover nacelles, flaps, spoilers, rudders and thrust reversers.

Aircraft reconfiguration, painting and cabin refurbishment
Vallair’s modification and reconfiguration activity is complemented by local preferred PART 21 DOA (Design Organisation Approval) partners that provide new LOPAs (Location of Passenger Accommodation) and SBs (Service Bulletins).

In addition to standard reconfiguration activity, Vallair undertakes complete cabin refurbishment using OEM paint and coverings, carpet and tedlar replacements. Vallair’s dedicated paint facility, accommodating aircraft up to A321 with sharklets, is adjacent to the MRO facility and can be used in conjunction with a maintenance or modification input.

Parking and storage
Vallair’s facility has capacity for 20+ aircraft within a secure airport environment. With an average of 222 days of sun per year, Montpellier (MPL) is easily accessible from major European airports and ideal for aircraft parking and storage. Office space and records storage can also be accommodated within the hangar complex.
