I read the special report on Maintenance in the October issue of Airline Business, and found it very interesting and well documented.

I would like to add a comment concerning the article on Market Analysis. In the Top 50 ranking of maintenance players I have not seen our group, TAT Industries, a French independent and fully private company that provides maintenance services on regional as well as narrow- and widebody aircraft through its two facilities at Dinard and Nimes.

The 2002 figures of total revenues have reached €173 million and therefore would have ranked TAT Industries at number 41 just behind AAR in the Top 50.
