Military & Aviation Spares (MA-Spares) is a distributor and importer/exporter of military and aviation spares, components and services to customers within Australia and overseas.

Our “aviation” capability includes both military and commercial aircraft and ground support equipment (GSE).  Our “military” capability includes sourcing materiel (non-aerospace) and services for army and police requirements, including land vehicles such as M113 and Light Armoured Vehicles (LAV’s).

Our capabilities also include the “management” of a Repair and/or Calibration pipe line in which we deal direct with the OEM and/or the best OH/Repair shop to find the most effective outcome for the customer.

Repair Management – Modern aircraft are comprised of dozens of systems and sub-systems and hundreds of repairable items (RI’s) and each require specific tooling, skills and approvals.  There are many hundreds of approved Repair Stations with varying levels of capability and core competencies.  The challenge of finding the best Repair Station or deciding to use the OEM (when possible and when not cost or lead-time prohibitive) for each individual component or repairable item can be a daunting task for even the most seasoned component repair managers.

While there can be a number of repair stations to choose from, each has its core competency.  Core competency being defined as being the best in a specific product/service through specialised skills, tools and experience.  Matching core competency with customer requirements is what we do to value-add to the supply chain and bring value in the form of quality, reliability, turn around time and price.
