Signature Flight Support celebrated the launch of its sixth Signature TechnicAir at Washington Dulles International Airport early this month, at the same time announcing the facility’s certification as an Embraer authorized service center. TechnicAir Dulles will perform maintenance, repair and overhaul services for the full line of Embraer business jets.

The Part 145 repair station will offer airframe, powerplant, avionics, RVSM pitot static testing and aircraft on ground (AOG) services for a variety of business and general aviation aircraft. TechnicAir Dulles will also provide mobile AOG services to outlying airports in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C.

Jack Potter, president and CEO of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, which operates IAD and DCA, said “General aviation flights are an integral part of Dulles, [accounting for] one in every seven takeoffs and landings each day.”

Signature Flight Support recently purchased the assets of Sun Aircraft Services, which was a long-term MRO provider and tenant at Signature’s Dulles location before the acquisition.
