National Flight Services has begun expansion of its San Antonio, Texas facilities at New Braunfels Regional Airport. Groundbreaking for an added 20,000 sq ft took place October 5, and construction is expected to be completed by May 2013.
Since 1996, National Flight has specialized in Honeywell TPE331 turbine engine services. The authorized Honeywell service center has been serving the aviation community for 52 years with a variety of offerings for general aviation, government and regional airline aircraft, including turbine- and piston-engine overhaul and repair, hot-section and gearbox inspections; engine rentals, component overhaul and repair, airframe services, pre-buy inspections and interior services. It also operates facilities in Toledo, Ohio; Lakeland, Fla.; and Kansas City, Mo.
“National Flight is a highly regarded turbine engine and overhaul repair station and we are pleased to welcome it to the New Braunfels Regional Airport,” said airport director Vinicio Llerena. “We are confident this partnership will be beneficial for National Flight and for the future development of the airport.”
According to National Flight, “This new facility will help us keep up with customer demand and explore future opportunities.”
