Strategic Collaboration Takes Flight: Aerometals and AAL Group Ltd Forge Services Agreement

Sharjah, UAE, April 24, 2024: Aerometals and AAL Group Ltd have come to a service agreement that appoints AAL as an exclusive provider of Product and Installation Services in the surrounding Middle East Territory for the Aerometals MI-17 Inlet Barrier Filters (IBF). The partnership between AAL Group Ltd and Aerometals presents a significant opportunity amidst current challenges, particularly concerning the protection of MI-17 engines. As the repair and overhaul of MI-17 engines is one of the most cost-and time-consuming maintenance activities on the aircraft which may significantly disrupt its operations and mission-readiness, securing access to essential engine components is crucial, and protecting in service engines is even more important. This collaboration ensures reliable support for safeguarding engines during this time. The mutual goal is to maintain operational readiness of the aircraft and minimize downtime while waiting for parts. Additionally, the Aerometals Inlet Barrier Filter (IBF) will replace the legacy particle separator, offering a superior solution for engine protection.

Crafted utilizing cutting-edge computer airflow modeling and three-dimensional CAD technology, Aerometals IBF introduces a paradigm of innovation and efficiency in safeguarding critical engine components. Beyond shielding engines from FOD damage and effectively filtering particulates and salt nuclei, this system also mitigates thermal impact spikes. Distinguishing features of this novel design, compared to less efficient existing systems, include a substantial weight reduction of approximately 40 pounds and minimal impact on aircraft performance.
