HAECO Americas has added aircraft paint capability at its airframe MRO facility in Lake City, Florida, USA.
Upgrades to the facility’s number 9 hangar are complete and were focused on space optimisation and efficiency, the company said. This included the installation of new divider curtains, climate-controlled paint storage, and upgraded heating and fire suppression systems.
United Airlines has selected HAECO Americas to paint some of its aircraft in 2022. The contract has already started, with painting of the first United 767 aircraft now in process.
“We are delighted to inaugurate our new renovated paint facility with United,” said HAECO Americas’ Lake City facility general manager Mark Easton. “This project will be even more rewarding, given our long-standing maintenance and repair partnership with United Airlines.”
