Tempe, AZ, -- Landmark Aviation has signed an agreement with BLR Aerospace to become an authorized dealer for the Everett, Washington-based aerospace research and development firm.
The arrangement allows five Landmark Aviation locations which have previously been designated as Raytheon Authorized Service Centers to install winglets designed, certified and manufactured by BLR on King Air 200 aircraft. The Landmark Aviation sites are located in Leesburg, Va., Norfolk, Va., Roanoke, Va., and Winston-Salem and Greensboro, N.C.
"This agreement is a logical extension of our relationship with BLR and takes advantage of the experienced technicians and familiarity we have gained over years of working on Raytheon produced aircraft," said Bob Fox, Regional Director of Maintenance, Landmark Aviation. "The technology provides significant enhancements to the King Air 200’s performance and represents another opportunity for us to offer our longstanding Raytheon Aircraft customer base a significant and cost-effective improvement to their aircraft."
Earlier this year Landmark Aviation was named the Beechcraft Domestic Dealer of the Year Award winner for 2005 for retailing more new airplanes than any other authorized dealer in the United States. It was the 11th straight year that Landmark or one of its predecessor companies has earned the distinction.
BLR Aerospace was founded in 1992 to provide productivity, performance and safety enhancements to general aviation aircraft. The company has built upon its expertise in airflow manipulation technology to become a world leader in the engineering, certification, manufacturing and marketing of aerodynamic components and systems for general aviation, commercial and military aircraft.
BLR Aerospace has secured nearly 60 Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) during its nearly 15 years of existence.
