A CAMO is not merely a legal requirement, it is a powerful tool and trusted partner to ensure the cost-efficient technical management of every aircraft.
We are an EASA Part-M Subpart G and Subpart I Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO). As such we act as the responsible CAMO for commerial and privately operated aircraft and as sub-contrectors for Commercial Air Traffic (CAT) operators. It is our job to ensure that the aircraft is managed in accordance with EASA regulations.
Like EASA, BCAA requires owners and operators of Bermuda registered aircraft to have continued airworthiness management either by being certified themselves or contracting a certified organization. As an EASA Part-M Subpart G organization, Primus is also certified as a CAMO according to BCAA regulation.
Placing the technical management of your aircraft in the hands of an EASA and BCAA approved CAMO makes it much easier to export your aircraft to the EU and Bermuda because it was already managed to their standards. Consequently, it makes your aircraft significantly more attractive to buyers in these regions.
Firstly, we assist our clients with finding a maintenance facility that is close to the location of their aircraft and also has all vital qualifications.
Secondly, our services include detailed financial auditing where we check invoices of suppliers for accuracy and correctness of pricing. Due to our vast expertise in the field we are able to judge invoiced costs and negotiate various price cuts. Therefore, this process allows you to save notable sums on your fees.
Thirdly, our operational auditing helps you to stay in line with regulations or to find potential gaps before your authority does.
We are able to provide your lessee, your lessor or any other party with a detailed and thorough inspection of the aircraft. This inspection is valid for the purpose of leasing, selling or simply showing the condition of your aircraft and its documentation.
We do not rely on virtual figures that are taken out of value guides but use our practical experience. As a result, our appraisals reflect this deep knowledge and show the true value of your asset.
Primus Aero assists banks who need to repossess aircraft of customers who fail to make their payments. Because of our expert knowledge in Aircraft Management and vast hands-on experience we are a reliable partner in this process.
We are not limited to any specific aircraft type or system, so we can acquire anything, from the smallest bulb to the biggest engines.
Because we are independent we are not contractually bound to aircraft manufacturers and can buy parts on the open market. It should be noted that this allows for up to 80% cost savings on some parts compared to MROs.
In addition, all parts sourced through us have the needed documents which allows for smooth installation.
We offer storage space in our secured and climate-controlled facility. Moreover, we provide a complete inventory and full overview of the value of all parts stored with us.
Naturally, the stored parts are available for you 24/7 and can be picked up or delivered by us to where your aircraft is.
Through our lease stock program, we offer the chance of earing money with parts in storage. First, contribute your spare part to our program and it stays available to you 24/7 when it it is not leased. Then, when your part is leased, you receive a lease fee that depends on the lenght of the lease and the value of your part.
We want to help you find the right aircraft, support program and maintenance facility. Here, our independence gives us the freedom to find the ideal solution for both commercial and private operators.
In the aquisition and delivery process our team ensures that the technical due-diligence is done and no defect remains undetected. Hence, this detailed review saves you avoidable costs.
We are familiar with the bulk of regulations and can provide you with the relevant manuals including: Operational Manuals, Aircraft Maintenance Programs, Continuing Airworthiness Management Expositions, Minimum Equipment Lists and Maintenance Organizational Expositions.
Furthermore, we can provide you with a review of your current manuals or rework them.
We can support you when you are looking for a Quality Manager or need to set up a full-scale Quality System.
Our team supports you in complying with today’s legal requirements. As a result of our rigid quality and compliance management system, our own standards are kept well above the industry average.
At the moment we are approved to perform Airworthiness Reviews on the types listed below and we are happy to extend our approval according to your needs.
"I really like to see what PRIMUS has become over the past years and once you deal with them you will instantly know why: the people behind the brand PRIMUS love their jobs and do their best every single day."
"One of our aircraft was in maintenance and should be released on a Tuesday and the Monday before was a national holiday. The Friday before the release, the representative of the MRO told me that they found a leak and needed a special hose/line which would arrive at the earliest on Wednesday. That particular aircraft, however, was chartered for 10 days starting on Tuesday and the maintenance delay endangered a rather big deal for us. Long story short, the part was delivered by Primus until Tuesday 9:00 and the MRO could replace it in time for the charter flight. The representative of the MRO then came to me and said that they had never experienced such short lead times before."
"We once had an issue with a Part 145 Organization. The maintenance center told us that they had performed hundreds and hundreds of hours and we were questioning that, so, we asked Primus to send someone to conduct a full review. The Primus technician was there for two or three days, reviewed the task cards and provided us with a very clear report on how many poeople worked on the aircraft for how long. It was extremely detailed and proved that the invoiced manhours were incorrect. It as a tremendous job which was executed perfectly. In the end Primus saved us around 60 000 EUR."
"We had problems with the radio of an Cessna XL during the Summer. The MRO told us that there are two weeks lead time on that part but flights were sold in that period. The first thing I did was to call Thomas K. He told me that he will check what he can do, half an hour later he called me back and confirmed that the new part will arrive at the MRO in the morning. That part was even cheaper than the quoted one from the MRO. After asking those guys at the MRO directly why they could not procure this part with the Primus price tag, they told me that Primus must have some connections that they wished to have too."
