Seattle, Wash., February 3, 2011 — Seattle’s only FAA Part 145 Airframe Approved Repair Station is open for business.
Executive Flight, Inc. (EFI) received certification for its brand-new Boeing Field facility in December, clearing the way for the company to provide comprehensive, value-added maintenance support to a range of turbine-powered aircraft. EFI will showcase the new facility and its capabilities during a March open house.
“We are pleased to be the exclusive Part 145 facility at Boeing Field, “said Mike Mahood, director of maintenance. “We are well on our way to becoming a convenient, one-stop shop for even more jet aircraft operators in the Pacific Northwest.” EFI’s well-known Wenatchee, Wash., operation has enjoyed Part 145 certification for 30 years. Facilities with Part 145 repair station certification have been inspected by the government and have been found to comply with the highest levels of conduct and documentation.
The Seattle facility is authorized to provide inspection, repair and modification support to a wide range of Bombardier, Cessna, Hawker Beechcraft and Learjet aircraft, as well as Avco Lycoming, Garrett, General Electric, Pratt and Whitney and Rolls-Royce powerplants. Highly experienced personnel will provide maintenance support for airframes, avionics, instruments, powerplants, and more.
The new 6,000-square-foot facility includes a modern new customer and pilot lounge complete with WI-FI. Visitors will enjoy access to cable TV and internet with a pilot shop and restaurants nearby.
“The Seattle maintenance facility will provide the highest levels of quality and service that aircraft owners and operators have come to expect from EFI,” said Robert “Nick” Nicholson, Maintenance Manager. “Customers can expect quick turnarounds and great value from an established company they can count on to deliver.”
Business Jet Access has moved its FAA Part 145 Repair Station, aircraft charter and management businesses to new facilities located on 7.5 acres on the South side of Love Field along Denton Dr.
The company will now apply for approval from the authorities to add the B787 to its capability list.
