C&L Aviation Service, a unit of Bangor, Maine-based C&L Aerospace Group, has been awarded Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) approval for maintenance services on commercial aircraft registered in Canada. Depot-level maintenance is performed by C&L Aviation Service from its FAA and European Union Aviation Safety Agency approved 140,000-sq-ft Part 145 facility in Bangor.

It focuses on regional jets and turboprops including Embraer ERJ 135/140/145, Saab 340, ATR 42/72, Dash-8, and CRJ 200/700. It also specializes in corporate aircraft including the Bombardier Challenger 604/605, Hawker 800 series, Cessna Citations, and Beechjet 400A. “Having the TCCA authorization in place is great news for our Canadian customers,” said C&L Aviation Group CEO Chris Kilgour. “We already provide parts and component repairs to our Canadian customers, so having the ability to perform quality maintenance on their aircraft here in Maine is a natural fit.”

The TCCA certification comes on the heels of a new hangar project for C&L at Bangor as well as a new parts warehouse in Dallas, Texas.
