Aircraft painting company Straube’s Aircraft Service (Booth No. N3317) recently announced it expects to receive Part 145 repair station certification for its paint shop at the AgustaWestland parts and repair facility in Philadelphia shortly.
“The 145 repair certification encompasses a five-part process, [and] we are currently finishing up phase three,” explained Straube’s chief inspector Kevin Darabant. The company expects to receive certification by this summer, he added.
Straube’s has operated the AgustaWestland Philadelphia paint facility for six years and began the Part 145 certification process in 2011. The company offers aircraft painting throughout the U.S. with facilities in Hawaii, Utah, Arizona and Pennsylvania.
The company also expects all four facilities to be ISO AS9100C certified in the next 18 months.
