Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America (MHIA), the Addison, Texas-based subsidiary of the Japanese company that built the MU-2 turboprop twin, has acquired Intercontinental Jet of Tulsa, Okla. The company provides support for about 50 percent of the 400-strong MU-2 fleet. The acquisition will not change the status of Turbine Aircraft Services, according to MHIA. The San Angelo, Texas, facility will continue as an approved supplier of MU-2 parts, publications and prop safety seminars.
