C&L Aviation Services announced the receipt of Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) approval.
As part of the C&L Aviation Group, the certification will allow C&L to perform maintenance services on commercial aircraft (defined as any aircraft that sells individual seats or full-aircraft rental services) that are registered in Canada.
C&L Aviation Services performs depot-level maintenance from its FAA and EASA approved, 140,000sq ft. Part 145 maintenance facility located in Bangor, ME USA.
The company focuses on regional aircraft including ERJ 135/140/145, Saab 340, ATR 42/72, Dash-8, and CRJ 200/700 and corporate aircraft, including Challenger 604/605, Hawker 800 series, Citation Aircraft, and Beechjet 400A.
“Having the TCCA authorisation in place is great news for our Canadian customers,” said CEO at C&L Aviation Group, Chris Kilgour. “We already provide parts and component repairs to our Canadian customers, so having the ability to perform quality maintenance on their aircraft here in Maine is a natural fit.”
Currently, the company operates two large maintenance hangars at their Maine location which also includes on-site parts warehouses, a custom interior shop, on-site avionics, engineering and component shops, and a 20,000sq ft state-of-the-art paint hangar.
Recently it was announced that the company is also expanding with several building projects in Maine and with a warehouse facility in Texas.
Earlier this year, C&L purchased a package of ATR inventory from Intertrade. As part of the transaction, C&L acquired over 1,400-line items to be added to their existing ATR inventory.
Parts from this purchase will bolster existing inventory and be used to support C&L’s robust ATR support programs by offering items ranging from new and overhauled, serviceable and repaired condition.
In addition to aircraft and engine sales and leasing programmes, C&L offers parts support, heavy maintenance, interior refurbishment, aircraft teardown, disassembly services, and aircraft management.
