Ikhana Aircraft Services is expanding its production facility at French Valley Airport, in Murrieta, Calif. A third hangar with more than 12,000 sq ft is several weeks from completion and will expand the company’s footprint to 55,000 sq ft, including three enclosed hangars. This facility expansion is designed to support the company’s current production needs and future growth predictions.
“Customer demand for Ikhana’s design, build, fly aircraft solutions remains extremely high, particularly in the markets for special-mission platforms and our DHC-6 Twin Otter products. Building a third hangar reflects our commitment to serving our customers’ needs and will create up to twenty new jobs,” said John Zublin, Ikhana’s president and CEO.
Ikhana Aircraft Services provides aircraft modifications, heavy maintenance, major repair and critical parts manufacturing. Ikhana holds FAA, EASA and Transport Canada repair station approvals and FAA parts manufacturer approval, and it is a Viking Air factory-endorsed service enter. The company specializes in DHC-6 Twin Otters, King Airs and Gulfstreams.
