Aircraft on Ground – AOG Services from AAA Air Support
The term “Aircraft on Ground”, or AOG, in the aviation maintenance industry, indicates that a problem is serious enough to prevent an aircraft from flying. AOG is defined as “any failure or discrepancy that grounds an aircraft”, and is typically reported within six hours of the normally scheduled departure. Because of the urgent need prevent further delays, or even a cancellation of the planned itinerary, there is a typically a rush to acquire the parts to return the aircraft back into service.
When you have Aircraft on Ground requirements for raw materials, you need and expect a reliable source. This is why AAA Air Support specializes in resolving your AOG maintenance needs with a quick turnaround for aircraft extrusions, roll form sections, sheet, plate, bar and tube materials. Our number one objective is to ensure that our customers with AOG needs will be quickly and efficiently serviced, and their aircraft back in service.
We do this in part because of our 7,500 square foot warehouse, conveniently located near LAX Los Angeles airport. Our facility is fully stocked with a massive inventory of various raw materials needed to meet your most crucial requirements. In addition, our products are shipped to both domestic and international locations to supply all repair and maintenance facilities from as small as one hanger to those with several dozen bays.

We manufacture roll form products in various grades of aluminum, steel and titanium. At AAA Air Support we can produce roll form in sections up to 75 feet in length, custom “one off” sections, multiple production runs.
