Arinc Direct’s FAA Part 145 certified repair station at the Scottsdale, Ariz. airport is now a factory authorized service center for the Piaggio Avanti and Avanti II. Arinc Direct Scottsdale becomes only the second Part 145 repair center in the U.S. to earn the Piaggio factory service authorization, according to Piaggio. Arinc Direct is at NBAA’06 Booth No. 758 with details on its services and capabilities.
The Arinc Direct repair facility in Scottsdale serves corporate and regional aircraft, offering virtually every type of maintenance including A through D checks, 24-hour AOG (aircraft-on-ground) service, oxygen, nitrogen and air-conditioning service. The facility, located at the Scottsdale Air Center, performs structural repairs and modifications, avionics support and installation, avionics integration and interior refurbishment. A hangar expansion to 40,000 sq ft is planned later this year.
The Avanti II is produced by Piaggio Aero Industries of Genoa, Italy, parent company of Piaggio America, West Palm Beach, Fla. It is powered by Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-66 engines and features Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics.
