In addition to offering maintenance, repair and modification of airframes, powerplants and avionics systems, the newly built HBS facility, which is certified by the DGAC (Dirección General de Aeronáutica Civil), provides interior modification services and exterior paint capabilities. The environmentally friendly paint shop provides services ranging from minor paint repair to complete repaint options. Customers can choose from custom designs or the latest factory paint designs.

A spokesman for the company told AIN, “In Mexico, we have nearly 300 turbine business aircraft in operation. In all of Central America, there are more than 1,500 Hawker and Beechcraft jets and turboprops.”
