AEM Adds Stabilizer Trim Actuator Capability

STANSTED AIRPORT, ESSEX - AEM Limited, a unit of AMETEK Aerospace & Defense, now has new capability to test, repair and overhaul the stabilizer trim actuator for the Boeing 737 Classic and Boeing 737 Next Generation (NG) series aircraft platforms at its Ramsgate, Kent facility.

Part numbers for B737 Classic are 65-49970- series, 65C34751- series and 65C36486- series and for B737 NG 251A4510- series.
