With a more than $1 million investment in parts inventory, along with additional stock inventoried by Bombardier Aviation, California-based ACI Jet has opened a 5,000-sq-ft parts depot at its San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport (SBP) headquarters. The facility, which has more than 3,000 part numbers in stock, will serve Bombardier Global and Challenger owners and operators.
ACI's parts depot complements its Bombardier-authorized service facility at SBP, where it also maintains an FBO and aircraft charter/management base. “Bombardier’s support network on the West Coast has grown to include full-service light and medium line maintenance and inspections through ACI Jet’s authorized service [facility],” said ACI senior v-p of maintenance Dave Jensen. “The addition of a parts depot featuring the most common and mission-critical parts and components for Bombardier aircraft means that their customers have a much wider net of support.”
In addition, ACI operates FBOs and charters and manages aircraft from three other California locations: Orange County, Paso Robles, and Oceano.
