Worldwide Aircraft has its roots firmly established with experience on the Saab 340 aircraft. Our history with the Saab goes back to 1982 when Jim McClean, one of the founders of Worldwide, was a participant in the Maintenance Steering Committee and MSG-3 working groups for the Saab 340 (when it was still cardboard and plywood). Jim was the Saab 340 Maintenance Steering Group Chairmen for over four years, when the first Saabs went into service with Air Midwest Airlines.
Worldwide Aircraft and many of its long time employees gained invaluable experience in maintaining, altering, repairing, and servicing the Saab 340 while with Air Midwest. Over the past 25 years plus, Worldwide has quite literally delivered serveral hundred Saabs to operators around the world and provided parts and maintenance support services for some of these same operators.
From routine On-Lease, Off-Lease, Pre-Purchase inspection to storage, major inspections, major accident repairs, cargo modifications, increase take-off weight, and avionics, there is nothing on the Saab 340 that we cannot do for our customers. We maintain a high level of tooling and technical proficiency as a Saab 340 certified FAA repair station. There is no substitute for owning, operating, and maintaining your own aircraft, as we have with the Saab 340 for understanding the needs of the current operators. Many repair facilites can talk about it, but there is no replacment for having to maintain the aircraft, getting it to the gate, and making money with it, to know it really well.
