GlobalParts Aero Structures has entered into an agreement with Turbine Aircraft Services (TAS) to provide inlet repair and replacement services for operators of aircraft ranging from Bombardier Challengers and Learjets to Textron Cessna, Hawker and Beechcraft jets. Both companies are located at Wiley Post Airport in Bethany, Oklahoma.
GlobalParts is a supplier of aircraft parts and recently added the capability to manufacture many of the engine inlet parts and subassemblies for Cessna, Hawker and Learjet business jets at its Bethany facility. Turbine Aircraft Services offers maintenance, repair and overhaul services for Bombardier Challenger and Learjet and Textron Beechjet, Hawker and Cessna Citation products.
Providing repair and replacement of engine inlets has been a part of GlobalParts' ongoing service in the past, “but it just got a lot easier, more convenient and certainly more efficient for customers,” noted Steve Farber, director of operations-manufacturing and structures at the company's Bethany site. Global Parts Aero Structures is also expanding its composite repair capabilities.
