Wing and Cosgrove team for faster turn-around

Wing Aviation announced a new $1 million contract with Cosgrove Aircraft Service that establishes a collaborative program in which Cosgrove stores an inventory to support Wing Aviation’s Gulfstream fleet with the critical rotable parts needed for urgent aircraft repairs.

Cosgrove specializes in consumable products and rotable exchange sales for most corporate aircraft, including Gulfstream, Challenger, Hawker, Citation, Falcon, Westwind, Learjet, JetStar, Sabreliner and Boeing.

“By having these parts here in Houston, we will be able to reduce our aircraft-on-ground time,” said Brian Wing, president of Wing Aviation. “Rather than relying on shipments from outlying parts facilities, we’ll have them right across the airfield at Hobby Airport, where a predominant portion of our fleet is based. This allows us to serve our charter customers and our owners better and is a testament to our dominant position as the large-cabin aircraft charter and management company in Houston.”
