Yukon, Oklahoma December 19, 2012 Legacy Aviation Services Inc. is nearly doubling its maintenance and modification shop space to 22,000 square feet at its C.E. Page Airport facility outside Oklahoma City.
The decision to add more service area comes as Legacy is responding to an ever growing customer base that is taking advantage of Legacy’s well known airframe maintenance, repair, and modification expertise.
Steve Reid, head of Legacy’s maintenance and modification business unit, sees the decision to expand as absolutely necessary. “As the business and general aviation fleet of turbo props and light jets….such as the King Air, early Citation and Twin Commander airframes age, the need for expert technicians that really understand and can maintain these airframes is growing big time. Operators demand people who know how to work on their aircraft quickly and cost efficiently. We’re fortunate to have a team of mechanics and airframe technicians with the experience and skills to keep our owner/operator customers of these workhorse aircraft flying safely.”
This newly added service capacity will also allow Legacy to comfortably work on larger jet aircraft as well.
Raul (RJ) Gomez is very optimistic about Legacy’s decision to expand. “As CEO of Legacy, my job is to make sure we can react appropriately to the needs of our customers, and the turbo prop and light jet segment specifically. We’re fortunate in that the GA and business aviation market know they can receive maintenance and modification… and even engineering expertise at Legacy that is second to none and that we’re going to do what it takes to keep aviation safe, viable and as cost effective as possible.”
Legacy’s expanded facility became fully operational in early December.
