At RFS, safety is our number one priority. There is no compromise when the aviation industry has to contend with escalating fuel and maintenance costs. Survival demands vigilant budgeting wherever possible without any trade-offs. This is where Rapco Fleet Support takes off.

RFS Rapco Fleet Support FAA-PMA Brake Components
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, longest-lasting, best-performing brake parts.
There are many advantages to having a comprehensive all-in-house system. For starters, we’re far more proactive, innovative, and responsive than our OEM counterparts. RFS manufactures and stocks all our parts right here in Hartland, Wisconsin USA. In most cases, orders ship the same day. Our professional, experienced and courteous staff is here to support you from sales to installation.
Because RFS is a comprehensive all-in-house system, we can pass on substantial savings in efficiency and cost to you. For example, we stock convenient Hot-Pac Brake Overhaul Kits among individual components and we have actual professionals serving our customers—from sales questions 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?
All of our customers have experienced the differences between Rapco Fleet Support, Inc. and the big OEMs. We’re smaller, nimbler, easy to work with, and a lot less expensive. 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. We earned 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 Takeoffs.
Our brake parts actually exceed OEM performance standards and airworthiness requirements.
