Los Angeles-based Aerocor, which specializes in brokerage and acquisition services for owners of light jets, is offering free aircraft pick up and delivery for Eclipse 500/550 maintenance customers through a partnership with Apex Aviation, a Henderson, Nevada-based FAA Part 145 repair station. Aerocor said pilot time is provided at no cost to maintenance customers using Apex, and it will also offer them a full flight test profile of their aircraft at no additional cost.
Customers are responsible only for costs such as pilot airfare and fuel, Aerocor said. “Taking the hassle out of scheduling maintenance wasn’t enough,” said Aerocor co-founder Gavin Woodman. “We also wanted to provide a service that would improve the maintenance process itself. Identifying and troubleshooting discrepancies en route streamlines the maintenance process and ensures that our clients are returned a squawk-free aircraft.”
