Premier Aviation Overhaul Center and Cape Air announced the signing of a three-year agreement for the painting of Cape Air’s fleet of Cessna 402C passenger aircraft. The work will be performed in Premier’s paint facility in Rome, N.Y.

“This agreement solidifies our relationship with Cape Air and emphasizes the importance of value-added services such as aircraft painting as part of an overall airframe maintenance offering,” said Premier president and CEO Ronnie DiBartolo.

Cape Air’s fleet consists of 75 Cessna 402Cs, two ATR 42s and three Britten-Norman Islanders.

Premier’s 379,000-sq-ft Rome facility houses maintenance, repair and overhaul services, including aircraft painting and support services for Cape Air’s Cessna 402Cs.

Premier has been doing exterior refinishing on single-aisle, widebody and regional aircraft for more than 10 years. The company also has facilities in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec and Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
