Trenton, New Jersey-based Jet East Corporate Aviation is pushing its AOG service into the Midwest with the establishment of mobile maintenance bases in Omaha, Nebraska; Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Kansas City, Missouri. That will give the MRO a Midwest coverage area that also includes North Dakota, South Dakota, and Iowa.
Jet East said the expansion is the result of customer demand and evaluation of incoming maintenance requests. “We realize the urgency involved when an owner or operator contacts our team,” said Jet East COO and executive v-p of AOG operations Gary Lee. “And it’s our job to resolve issues efficiently and effectively to get them back into the air with the least amount of disruption to their itineraries.”
Already spanning the Northeast corridor and the Great Lakes region, Jet East’s AOG service comprises 50 team members and recently started up an operation in Arizona. As a whole, it averages more than 300 AOG events per month.
