Together, JD Aero and MC2 will provide regional airline operators with a broader scope of capabilities through their combined strengths to address increasing demand for competitive and comprehensive services. The alliance will also support special mission operators of regional-type aircraft.

MC2 President Bill Arsenault says, “This working partnership will see two of the most experienced companies in the industry working together to deliver innovative solutions for our joint clients. Discussions with Don and Julian quickly made us realize that JD Aero was exactly the type of company we want to get alongside. We share the same values and customer focus. This perfectly complements what we already do for regional operators.”

JD Aero will gain valuable access to MC2’s avionics integration expertise along with its extensive and growing portfolio of Supplemental Type Certificate packages for regional aircraft, and an expanded scope of avionics repair capabilities. MC2’s engineering division, ADS, will provide JD Aero clients with multi-discipline design, engineering and airworthiness support and structural repairs

approvals through its Transport Canada Design Approval Organization (DAO) — especially critical today for out-of-production regional aircraft.

“We are very pleased to have MC2 and ADS as strategic partners,” JD Aero Managing Partner Don McNabb explained. The alliance will enable us all to provide a greater range of services to our customers. Having the added valuable experience of MC2 and ADS to rely on will be a benefit for continued success and future endeavours.”

MC2 and ADS will now, in turn, be able to offer incremental capabilities to JD Aero’s client base while aircraft are down for scheduled and unscheduled mods and maintenance at the Sault Ste. Marie CYAM JD Aero complex.

JD Aero Managing Partner Julian Chin says, “Partnering with MC2 and ADS will enable our respective employees to not only expand their knowledge but to co-create new ways of thinking and best practices to drive innovative industry-specific solutions to ensure the sustainability of both companies.”

Over the course of the next few weeks, JD Aero and MC2 will define their joint market solutions and reach out to their clients.
