First repair station company member
Haggan Aviation, located at Centennial Airport, Centennial, CO, is the first FAA 145 repair station to achieve company member status in AMTSociety.
It was started on Sept. 15, 1996 by owner/president Eugene (Geno) Haggan as a one-man company. After 19 years working for FBOs, Geno wanted to do consulting work. However, a large following of his former customers requested that he work on their aircraft and so Haggan Aviation became a reality.
Today, 37 employees work from 7:00 a.m. to midnight seven days a week to accommodate the successful business. As an FAA 145 repair station it is an authorized TFE Honeywell 731 line service center and Rockwell Collins and Universal dealer. Haggan Aviation has heavy structural modification capabilities and is an authorized Razbeck dealer for installation of wing lockers, reduced drag fill installations, and is authorized to install Delta Fins.
Haggan Aviation is focused on small to medium sized business jet maintenance including all LEER jet series, Hawker, Citation, Westwind, and Beechjet.
Haggan Aviation offers complete interior capabilities. And it has an Avionics division that completes major as well as minor installations, troubleshooting on systems, and full RVSM capabilities as well as compliance and service on static systems, altimeters, and transponders. It is an authorized air cell, flight display systems, Shadin Avionics, Rockwell Collins, and Honeywell service center.
All of the staff are Airframe and Power plant certified, and three hold current Inspection Authorization. Haggan Aviation received the prestigious FAA Diamond Award of Excellence Dec. 31, 2006.
Haggan Aviation performs work for numerous Fortune 500 companies’ flight departments and has a stellar record as evidenced by the entire work force — its desire, knowledge base, professionalism, and courteous attitudes, real honest to goodness hard workers that give 150 percent every day.
This can be attested to by the framed letters that are seen when you enter the reception area:
“Productivity level in the shop was the best I have ever experienced. We have used Haggan Aviation for several of our major inspections and they have proven to be very knowledgeable and customer oriented. I deal with aviation maintenance people all over the United States daily, I just wanted to let you know your group is by far the best in every respect. Everyone is friendly and professional. It’s a pleasure to call your facility when needing help with one of our fleet airplanes.”
