Kaman Composites has partnered with C&L Aerospace, expanding its composite repair services to the business jet aftermarket.

    Kaman has named MRO provider C&L Aerospace as its exclusive distributor for composite structural repairs out of its FAA part 145 repair station in Wichita, Kansas.

    The partners will offer structural repairs for a variety of business jet platforms, including Textron and Bombardier platforms.

    “Historically, Kaman Composites has provided structural repair exclusively for military programmes,” said Kaman Composites senior director of business development Malissa Nesmith. “However, this collaboration with C&L expands our repair services into the business aviation aftermarket, which we are looking forward to supporting.”

    C&L Aerospace director of business development Brad Vieux commented: “We can now offer customers structural repairs for customer owned units, or we can offer an immediate exchange. It gives our customers more options and we look forward to growing the programme with Kaman.”
