Its on-site quality assurance teams prepare daily reports as part of a comprehensive quality control process to ensure that work is conducted to the highest standards.

      Robert T. Convey, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing at AEI, said: “As we expand our authorised AEI Conversion Centres in the Chinese mainland, we are happy that we have chosen HAECO Xiamen. The quality of workmanship and professionalism at HAECO Xiamen is exceptional and we congratulate them on the delivery of the first AEI conversion to Aviation Holdings III, L.P.”
