Raisbeck Engineering named Argentina’s Aero Baires its newest authorized dealer. The designation allows Aero Baires to install all of Raisbeck’s King Air mods. The MRO is also a Beechcraft dealer and authorized service center. “We have been related to the Beech family since 1947. I believe this new venture will be of mutual success for both parties and we look forward to a long, prosperous relationship,” said Aero Baires president Jimmy Smith.
Finding qualified aircraft maintenance personnel is becoming increasingly difficult and has led one recruiting firm to go on the road. Aerotek St. Louis recently held a job fair in Kansas City to recruit more than 100 aircraft mechanics, technicians, inspectors and engineers for a defense contract.
