Boise, Idaho-based FBO and Part 145 provider Western Aircraft has been awarded approval to provide maintenance on Mexican-registered aircraft from the Federal Civil Aviation Agency (Agencia Federal de Aviación Civil). The approval covers business aircraft manufactured by Gulfstream, Dassault, Textron Aviation (Hawker, Cessna, and King Air models), Pilatus, Embraer, and Piper.
“We are excited to expand our capabilities to work on Mexican-registered aircraft,” said Western Aircraft director of sales and marketing Kerry Heiss. “Having spoken with numerous Mexican operators, we know they value working with capable MRO facilities. In addition, our avionics, interior, and structures departments complement our maintenance work for a broad array of jet and turboprop aircraft.”
Mexican approval follows the Greenwich AeroGroup company’s recent addition of a 53,000-sq-ft hangar, the first phase of a $17 million expansion that includes the construction of a 40,000-sq-ft building to house Western’s avionics and interior shops, as well as administrative offices.
