Mather Aviation Opens New Maintenance Facility in Van Nuys

VAN NUYS, CA -- Mather Aviation opened a new facility in Van Nuys, CA (KVNY) on June 1, 2009. This facility is Mather Aviation's first location in Southern California and brings the total number of locations to four.

Mather Aviation has just leased 15,000 square feet of hangar space at the Keck-Aerolease Center.

"While other aviation maintenance companies have been struggling, we at Mather have been fortunate enough to be in a position to expand into the locations that are understaffed," says Victor Cushing, Owner and President of Mather Aviation. "With the closing of a few major repair centers, Van Nuys airport is the perfect place for our first Southern California location. The General Aviation community is incredibly strong at this airport and there are many types of aircraft without a major maintenance facility at this site."

The new Mather Aviation Van Nuys location will be capable of servicing aircraft from single engine piston to medium corporate jets. The team there will also offer mobile "Aircraft On Ground" (AOG) service to the greater Los Angeles area with its mobile maintenance truck.

"We have a lot of customers currently flying up to Northern California from Los Angeles or San Diego. The new location will save them time and money," says Cushing.

The Van Nuys location is open and prepared to include a pilot's lounge, kitchen, wireless internet access, a conference room, and secure parking.
