Elliott Aviation has added mobile maintenance capabilities to include aircraft inspections and due items, the Moline, Illinois-based business aviation MRO provider announced this week. Its mobile maintenance is available for maintenance events, involving those for the Beechjet 400A/XP, Bombardier Challenger, Cessna Citation, Hawker, Beechcraft King Air and Premier, Embraer Phenom, and Daher TBM.
“We understand how challenging this time [during the Covid-19 pandemic] can be for customers, including how difficult it can be to logistically plan an inspection or other maintenance events in this environment,” said Elliott Aviation v-p of maintenance, paint, and interior sales Michael Parrish. With the company's mobile maintenance solutions, "customers can ensure their aircraft stays current on a number of calendar or flight time and cycles maintenance items without having to leave their hangar,” he said.
The same safety precautions for mitigating Covid-19 that Elliott Aviation uses at its three MRO facilities to ensure employee and customer safety are used by its mobile maintenance teams. That includes extensive, documented cleaning, social distancing, and the highest level of cleanliness, according to the company. In addition to Moline, Elliott Aviation operates MRO facilities in Des Moines, Iowa, and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
