Helicopter MRO provider Uniflight Global is expanding its avionics product and service offerings to include fixed-wing aircraft, the Grand Prairie, Texas-based company announced this week. “The influx of new business as a result of recent wins to upgrade both government and private-sector fixed-wing aircraft offers a testament to our focus on and support of fixed-winged platforms,” said Uniflight v-p of sales Ray Weiser.
The company—which operates Part 145 repair facilities in Texas and Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania—noted that it has prior experience with fixed-wing avionics, including a 2017 project to install a tactical flight officer station in a law enforcement customer’s Cessna 206 that led to additional installs for its fixed-wing fleet. More recently, the appointment of Kimberley Christianson to oversee Uniflight’s avionics and aircraft completions business has bolstered its opportunities for more fixed-wing projects.
“Kim’s vast knowledge and depth of experience with design and integration have earned her a reputation for quality with a strong following of loyal customers who operate both rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft in very demanding missions,” Weiser said.
