Aspire MRO has launched widebody MRO and Passenger-to-Freighter (P2F) conversion services.

Aspire will operate six bays available for heavy widebody maintenance and B777 P2F conversions at the former American Airlines maintenance facility located at Fort Worth Alliance Airport in Fort Worth, Texas.

The facility measures 840,000 sq ft.

Aspire said it had secured a “long term” multi-year contract to perform P2F conversions and MRO-related work for Mammoth Freighters, which is launching a B777 conversion offering.

Aspire expects the Alliance Airport facility to become a long-term hub for aircraft maintenance and bring “significant job creation” to the Fort Worth area.

Aspire president and chief executive Phil Bathurst said: “With a strong backlog of work, an experienced leadership team, an impressive facility at the premier Fort Worth Alliance Airport, and the financial backing of a leading global alternative asset manager with decades of experience in our sector, I fully expect Aspire to become the pre-eminent MRO providing conversion and maintenance services to widebody aircraft in North America.”

The company is backed by investment funds managed by affiliates of Fortress Investment Group.
