Lee Aerospace Expands FAA Part 145 Capabilities and West Coast Presence

Wichita, KS - January 15, 2019 - With the start of the New Year, Lee Aerospace announces expansion of its Part 145 capabilities and its national presence across the United States.  As of late December, the Lee Aerospace Part 145 Repair Station, #YLR863L, has added repair capabilities to include composite repairs on specific models for the main entry door assembly of the HondaJet.  In addition to the existing certificate rating, which originally focused primarily on transparencies, Lee Aerospace is now expanding into other structural elements of the airframe.

“We are well-known in the industry for our inspection, repair and installation of transparencies.  However, we have manufactured composite assemblies and major aerostructures at Lee Aerospace for years.  Adding this composite capability to our 145 certificate allows us the opportunity to perform repairs on structural assemblies that we know very well on the manufacturing side,” said Greg Piland, VP of Aftermarket Sales and Services.  “This expansion is a natural progression for the company.”

In addition to the new capability, the Lee Aerospace Part 145 Repair Station has added more service technicians on the West Coast.  Lee now will be dispatching additional certified technicians out of Provo, Utah to cover the western regions of the United States.  “We have had a growing customer demand out west.  Fortunately, we were able broaden our reach by expanding the number of technicians nationwide and relocating some of our talent to Utah to meet that demand,” Piland added.  

Driving demand for more installation services is Lee Aerospace’s new CoolView technology.  In addition to the significant improvements in comfort that CoolView is providing owners and operators of the aircraft, the warranty on the Lee Aerospace manufactured products comes with an additional 12 months if Lee Aerospace performs the installations.  “We feel like you are getting a great technology, a superior product, and with the option of the expanded warranty by using the Lee Aerospace A&P professionals to do the work, you are getting an industry-leading product offering,” adds Jim Lee, President of Lee Aerospace.  “We will go anywhere in the nation, or across the world, to provide high-quality, certified installations.  Now with the expansion of our west coast staffing, we are making it even easier for our customers to enjoy the Lee Aerospace service and technology.”
