PMA brakes sub assembly

OEM alternative brake assemblies and kits for private aircraft.

Rapco Fleet Support's FAA-PMA brake components are of the highest quality and value compared to what OEMs offer. Since the early 1990’s, our aviation brake products have helped regional airlines and corporate fleet operators dramatically gain control of expenses without a single Airworthiness Directive.

Rapco Fleet Support manufactures brake components for some of the most widely used fleet and corporate aircraft. We take pride in our ability to get the highest quality PMA parts to our customers quickly through a worldwide network of distributors. All RFS brake components are made entirely in the USA.

Why Choose RFS Rapco Fleet Support FAA-PMA Brake Components

Manufacture of aircraft wear pads

PMA parts are run through intense inspection and testing.

A Better Brake Part from Design to Delivery

To get FAA-PMA approval for our brake parts, we set the bar high. Our designs, engineering, testing, manufacturing, quality control and quality assurance are comprehensive and rigorous.  We document thousands of dynamometer test landings and FAA regulated flight tests which include, but are not limited to, max weight landings, water contaminated runway landings and rejected take-offs. Quite simply, we build the safest, longer lasting, better performing brake parts.

Faster Turnaround

There are many advantages to having a comprehensive all-in-house system. For starters, we’re far more  proactive, innovative, and responsive compared to our OEM counterparts. RFS manufactures and stocks all our parts right here in Hartland, Wisconsin USA. In most cases, orders ship the same day.. We have a professional, experienced and courteous staff to support you from sales to installation.

Serious Savings

Because RFS is a comprehensive all-in-house system we can pass on substantial savings in efficiency, sanity, and cost to you. For example, we stock convenient Hot-Pac Brake Overhaul Kits among individual components and you have direct connections to live, professional, actual people serving customers from sales to technical issues.

When considering OEM vs. PMA parts, it ultimately comes down to price. There really is no competition. Our PMA parts will beat OEM prices every time.

What REALLY Comes with These Boxes?

Box of OEM Airplane Brake Parts
  • Annual price increases
  • Slow delivery
  • Impatient, dismissive attitude
  • Old technology
  • Eligibility through FAA-PMA
Box of FAA/PMA Approved Aircraft Brake Parts
  • Large cost savings over OEM
  • Quick delivery
  • Helpful attitude
  • New technology
  • Eligibility through FAA-PMA

All of our customers have experienced the differences between Rapco Fleet Support, Inc. and the big OEM’s. We’re quicker, easier to deal with, less expensive, small and aggressive. They’re the opposite.

The only similarity is both products are installed in the same wheel assembly with FAA-PMA installation authority. When OEM parts are installed as a replacement, eligibility is through FAA-PMA authority. Same as our brake parts.

The OEM’s received their PMA by simply being on the aircraft when the TC holder received certification. RFS earned their PMA by proving performance with hundreds of stops on a dynamometer and a strict FAA mandated flight test schedule. Testing included normal landings under different conditions as well as at wear-limit Rejected Takeoff’s. Our brake parts exceed OEM performance standards and airworthiness requirements.

PMA Approval Process Complies with FAA Rules and Regulations
