Lee Aerospace has announced an expansion of the capabilities of its Part 145 Repair Station. These now include composite repairs on specific models for the main entry door assembly of the HondaJet.
The existing certificate rating focused primarily on transparencies, but the company now also handles other structural airframe elements.
“We are well known in the industry for our inspection, repair and installation of transparencies,” said Greg Piland, vice president of aftermarket sales and services.
“However, we have manufactured composite assemblies and major aerostructures at Lee Aerospace for years. Adding this composite capability to our 145 certificate allows us the opportunity to perform repairs on structural assemblies that we know very well on the manufacturing side. This expansion is a natural progression for the company.”
In addition to the new capability, the Lee Aerospace Part 145 Repair Station has added more service technicians on the West Coast. Lee now will be dispatching additional certified technicians out of Provo, Utah, to cover the western regions of the USA.
“We have had a growing customer demand out west. Fortunately, we were able to broaden our reach by expanding the number of technicians nationwide and relocating some of our talent to Utah to meet that demand,” said Piland.
Lee Aerospace says its new CoolView window technology is driving the demand for more installation services. CoolView is a metallic composite barrier system for aircraft transparencies, designed to enable a cooler cabin. Lee Aerospace extends the products’ warranty by 12 months if they are also installed by the company.
“We feel like you are getting a great technology, a superior product and with the option of the expanded warranty by using the Lee Aerospace A&P professionals to do the work, you are getting an industry-leading product offering,” said Jim Lee, president of Lee Aerospace.
“We will go anywhere in the nation, or across the world, to provide high-quality, certified installations. Now with the expansion of our west coast staffing, we are making it even easier for our customers to enjoy the Lee Aerospace service and technology.”
