Eagle Creek Aviation Services (ECAS) is opening a Learjet Service Center at Eagle Creek Airport (EYE) in Indianapolis. The company’s FAA Diamond Award-winning repair station will work on Learjet 23s through 25s. Located a few miles northwest of the city center, the facility anchors the regional airport. EYE is the closest airport to downtown Indianapolis and the growing business/technology corridor on the city’s northwest side.

The facility hired 20 veteran Learjet technicians formerly employed at Bombardier’s Indianapolis Service Center. ECAS also does maintenance and refurb on Cessna Citations and has a long-standing reputation as a Twin Commander service and sales center known for the development of major upgrades and improvements. In addition to maintenance, the company is involved with avionics, interior refurbishment and repairs.

Eagle Creek president Matt Hagans said he anticipates hiring more Learjet technicians by year-end. “We currently offer virtually every type of Learjet service, including scheduled maintenance, repairs, structural modifications, TFE731 turbofan service and interior refurbishment.”
