WHAT IS AN FAA REPAIR STATION?
FAA Certified Repair Station Defined
The FAA requires that air carriers and their contractors fully comply with federal regulations. FAA repair station certification is a process that helps ensure safety in the aviation industry. This is a requirement for organizations like Sonic Aerospace that inspect, repair, replace or overhaul aviation articles including airframes, propellers as well as other aircraft components.

Parameters and tolerances of aerospace machining are extremely high. In most cases, we’re machining products with very challenging geometries. Aerospace machining depends on complex CNC turning services, which is a must for effective aerospace machining.
We specialize in the repair and overhaul of gas turbine engines and secondary power source components. Here are a few common aircraft components we’re often called on for repair:

We can help you bridge the gap from an idea to a successful production run. Our knowledge and understanding of machining, part design, materials and manufacturing has led to countless successes for companies in need of prototyping services or assistance with New Product Introduction (NPI).
Castings offer many benefits, including speeding up time to market. However, one of the tradeoffs with castings is accuracy. Many castings require final machining in order to meet tolerance requirements or acceptable surface finishes. This is where we come in. We can take your castings, and bring them in line with your expectations/blueprint tolerances.
When it comes to machined parts, sometimes manual/human intervention is the best answer. For example, if your machined part isn’t extremely complex it can often be quicker and less expensive to build your parts on a manual mill or lathe. One thing you’ll find with Sonic Aerospace is we always operate with our customers’ best interest at hand. If we can save you money and time, that’s what we’re going to recommend!
Development of repairs and tooling for gas turbine engine parts.
If you need a predictable flow of machined parts, we can build, store and ship your machined parts so you always receive them right when you need them.
Machining projects involve a lot of moving parts (literally). High volume machining presents another set of challenges. From tooling, to coolant management, material procurement, project management, staffing and machining capabilities we’re well equipped to handle jobs ranging from small to higher volumes of machined parts.
Once your components are machined to your specifications, we can help to meticulously compile them into a kit so you don’t have to. With our kitting services we can save you both time and money.
Often times, machined parts require additional working by our customers. There are a wide range of options, but a few common secondary machining operations include plating, anodizing, brazing, powder coating, deburring, painting, passivation, heat treating, or part marking. Whatever your requirements, we can handle them all for you. One purchase order. One point of contact.
Using advanced CAD/CAM software we provide early stage concept design, part engineering and mechanical design of parts and products.
Whether a company went out of business or a product goes end of life, sometimes we need to deconstruct individual components that are part of a larger product. With our reverse engineering services we’re able to capture detailed information about a part’s design, and thereby recreate it. We can help you regain part data with our reverse engineering services.
Wondering if your part will meet your quality, safety, reliability or performance standards? Is your material selection up to the task? We’ll help you remove the guesswork. With our Non-Destructive Testing we’ll evaluate critical variables, and make necessary recommendations to help you ensure part/product success.
Are you in need of custom tooling, fixturing or workholding solutions? This is a passion of ours, and we use our own tooling and fixturing every day at Sonic Engineering.
With consignment inventory, we own the parts inventory until your machined parts ship. Our customers appreciate reduced inventory holding costs, and predictable parts delivery with our consignment inventory options. Ask us for more details about this.
Yes, we’re a Phoenix machine shop but our reach is nationwide. Multiple transit options mean quick, efficient machined parts delivery no matter your location. Ready for a better option? Reach out to us today!
