Spirit Aeronautics delivers 11th FAA aircraft


Spirit Aeronautics of Columbus, Ohio, USA, has delivered its 11th King Air B300 aircraft to the FAA. The company upgraded the aircraft’s avionics and refurbished the interior, as part of an 18-aircraft commitment.

“We are growing but that hasn’t changed our desire to provide exceptional customer care with projects on-time and on-budget,” said Tony Bailey, president and COO, Spirit Aeronautics.

“The result of our focus is that we consistently deliver refurbished and modified aircraft to our customers with exceptional quality and accuracy which has been demonstrated year-after-year with the FAA contract. To top it off, we are constantly improving our processes and looking at projects holistically, to provide high levels of customer care. We may be smaller than some of our competitors but we are doing big things for our customers and we stand by our work.”

Spirit Aeronautics was awarded the contract to complete the design, certification, refurbishment and upgrade of 18 FAA B300 King Air aircraft in December 2010. The work includes engineering and project management. New LED lighting, headliners, seats, sidewalls, cabinets and noise reduction insulation is being installed.
