MRO provider Ace Aeronautics has opened a new paint booth and media blast facility at its Guntersville, Alabama campus, building on the company’s capabilities for the maintenance and modification of military and general aviation aircraft and providing turnkey services. The booth will accommodate up to two helicopters the size of a CH-47 Chinook and UH-60 Blackhawk, as well as single fixed-wing airplanes up to the size of a Beechcraft King Air 350i.

The media blast facility will accommodate one aircraft at a time. These additional capabilities follow a recent 58,000-sq-ft facility expansion that included a new hangar and general office space.

“In response to the high demand for aircraft storage and MRO space, Ace has invested a significant amount over recent years to meet this need for military and commercial customers,” said Ace v-p of business development Tracy Stapleton. “The opening of our state-of-the-art paint booth is just one example of our investment to bring excellent facilities and services to our customers.”
