Berry Aviation has opened a 31,000-sq-ft maintenance hangar at San Marcos (Texas) Regional Airport, close on the heels of it receiving Part 145 repair station certification from the FAA and European Union Aviation Safety Agency.
“Overall, these improvements have increased the company’s ability to add new repair capabilities by tenfold,” Berry Aviation president and chief operating officer Stanley Finch said. “That, coupled with the new certifications, allows us to operate on a much wider range of aircraft and parts.”
The new hangar offers 19,300 sq ft of aircraft maintenance space, as well as a 3,500-sq-ft component repair and overhaul area and 2,800 sq ft for a parts department. “This new hangar adds enough aircraft capacity to give us an estimated 75 percent increase in hands-on maintenance work,” said Finch. “That added productivity expands our ability to service company aircraft and additional commercial maintenance customers.”
The company’s repair station certification includes airframe, powerplant, propeller, and accessories, with FAA authorization to work on Beechcraft King Airs. It is also authorized to work on some Cessna Citation and Bombardier Learjet models, among others. The company provides services that include government and defense charter services, on-demand cargo, MRO, and FBO.
