Jet Aviation, which acquired Midcoast Aviation earlier this year, today announced that it finished restructuring the group’s MRO and FBO businesses in North America. Jet Aviation placed four of MROs (in Bedford, Mass.; Chicago; Palm Beach, Fla.; and Teterboro, N.J.) under Midcoast, while Midcoast’s St. Louis Downtown Airport FBO is now operated by Jet Aviation.
The Palm Beach MRO facility will still be a Dassault Falcon Jet service center, but heavier maintenance will shift to Midcoast’s St. Louis facilities. The company will continue offering the same maintenance services at the facilities switched from Jet Aviation to Midcoast.
In addition, Jet Aviation signed an agreement on Oct. 10 to sell its MRO business in Dallasto Premier Air Center/West Star, but it will continue its FBO services in Dallas Love Field. Jet Aviation expects the deal to take effect Nov. 1.
Next week’s National Business Aviation Association convention in Orlando should provide lots of maintenance news. Check out our blog from the show to see the next industry plays.
