Istanbul Gets Eclipse Platinum Service Center
Eclipse Aerospace has located its first Platinum service center in Europe for Eclipse EA500 aircraft service, maintenance and modifications. Located in Istanbul, Turkey, Eclipse Aerospace General Aviation will provide maintenance, repair and overhaul support for Eclipse EA500 operators in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “We are excited to offer our customers in Europe local capacity for service and modifications,” said Ken Ross, president of the Eclipse aerospace service division. “Eclipse Aerospace General Aviation is one of the best facilities in the region and offers complete MRO capability. Our customers in Europe and surrounding areas will now be able to receive the same complete service experience found in our U.S. facilities located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Chicago.” Eclipse Aerospace General Aviation’s facility at Istanbul’s Ataturk International Airport is located at the general aviation facility dedicated to private jets. The facility will provide scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, including Avio and flight-into-known-icing upgrades, AOG and mobile response team support. The Platinum Service Center will be the support location for a network of gold-level service providers throughout Europe and the Middle East as the Eclipse fleet expands in the future.
