UK-based Satair has opened an FAA-approved battery repair shop in Atlanta. The facility is designed to service nickel-cadmium and sealed lead-acid aircraft batteries of various models and sizes manufactured by Saft, Marathon, Concorde, Gill Teledyne and Hawker as well as smaller aircraft battery packs. The new shop will also hold inventory of battery parts for service and be supported by Satair’s regional and global battery support organization.
“We have a battery shop in Heston, UK, but we wanted one in the U.S. as part of a planned expansion in the region to support our growing customer base. So we bought a small company that does battery service, built a new shop and had it certified in Atlanta. It joins our Miami facility, where we have hose repair,” Courtney Bennet, director of customer service and supply chain, told AIN. The Atlanta service facility supports airlines, business jets, general aviation, rotary-wing and military customers.
