Legacy Aviation (Booth No. 5385) of Yukon, Okla. is showcasing its turboprop and jet repair and refurbishment capabilities here at NBAA’12, including its readiness to handle Service Bulletin 241 for inspection of Twin Commander aft pressure bulkheads. “Legacy Aviation is a fairly new company, but we have a professional staff with more than a hundred years of accumulated aircraft experience,” said Legacy president R.J. Gomez. “We have many loyal customers, the key being we are customer-oriented, fair and honest.” Company personnel have traveled as far as Saudi Arabia to resolve AOG issues.

The recent service bulletin, prompted by cracks in the aft pressure bulkhead area, calls for inspection and modification of the bulkhead on Twin Commander 690, 690A and 690B turboprop twins. “We’re glad to be part of analyzing the safest and most cost-effective way to address [the bulletin],” said Gomez. “Special training on the fix is a must, and our shop has the expertise to handle it and see that owners and operators are flying safely.”
