Having been in the industry for years, Rapco Fleet Support is no stranger to customers asking what we think about the good old OEM vs PMA conversation. PMA parts like our airplane rivet GY16B7 are tested using the same procedures used on products produced by the Original Equipment Manufacturer:
The parts manufacturer approval process is the same across the board for all aircraft replacement parts sold on the market. In other words, you aren’t trading anything in when you switch from OEM to PMA. Aside from a better deal, OEM is in no way superior to PMA parts and is one of the reasons why companies like Rapco Fleet Support are becoming more popular every year.
Looking for a specific metal like aluminum, stainless steel, brass or copper? We’ll do our best to accommodate your requests by matching you with the rivets best suited for your needs. Don’t hold back because you’re unsure about PMA – our parts meet the same standards of OEM and give you nothing to worry about.
