Tac Air has reached an agreement with the Omaha Airport Authority to construct a new 2,200-sq-ft Customs and Border Protection facility adjacent to its terminal at Eppley Airfield (OMA) in Nebraska. “The location of this new customs facility will allow seamless ground handling for international arrivals into Omaha,” said Mike Wilwerding, the service provider’s OMA general manager. The building is expected to be completed by the middle of the year. Tac Air has been providing fueling for commercial, military and general aviation aircraft at the airport since 1998.
StandardAero’sOmaha regional service center completed its first line-level inspection of a Honeywell TFE731 engine since acquiring the Honeywell line-level service authorization this past June. Technicians completed 150-/250-hour and 300-/400-hour engine inspections on all three engines of a Falcon 50 for an Eppley Field-based corporate customer, and they did it while watching the Missouri River threatening to flood the airport.
