Arcadia Aviation has recently expanded maintenance capabilities by adding the Israeli Aircraft Industries, (IAI), Westwind 1124 and 1124A series aircraft to its FAA Part 145 Repair Station License.
Mike Harvey, a former IAI Field Service Representitive who currently sits on the manufacturer’s advisory panel, has joined Arcadia’s maintenance team as Director of Westwind Technical Services at the company’s Martinsburg, WV, FBO facility.
Harvey, a twenty-eight year veteran systems specialist for the IAI business jet product line, has also been contracted by Worthington Aviation to provide technical assistance and consulting services for the Westwind. Previously, the majority of his career has also included technical positions with AstraJet, Galaxy Aerospace and Gulfstream Aerospace.

We look forward to offering a fresh maintenance alternative for operators based on our core principals of providing superior services and financial transparency in all transactions with our company.”
