Fargo Jet Center (FJC) of Fargo, N.D., announced delivery of its eighth special mission King Air this year at the NBAA Convention in Las Vegas. “2011 has been a very busy year for our repair station,” said Darren Hall, Fargo Jet v-p of marketing. “Our special-mission modifications have grown significantly over the past two decades by combining the special-mission aircraft needs of our international clients, sister company Weather Modification and Fargo, N.D.-based Spectrum Aeromed.”

This year’s modification jobs encompassed a combination of cloud seeding, atmospheric research and air medical transport system installations. The most recent completion, for the Armed Forces in the Republic of Senegal, features the latest-technology cloud-seeding equipment, window-mounted air-sampling inlets and wing-mounted atmospheric research probes.

“We have assembled a very talented team to deliver state-of-the-art advanced research aircraft across the world,” said Fargo Jet president Jim Sweeney. “The depth of our services throughout the company enables us to provide our clients with turnkey services from acquisition through special mission modifications to ongoing training.”

Fargo Jet Center provides maintenance, FBO services, flight training, air charter and aircraft sales.
