Aerocare Aviation Services Limited (Aerocare) and Inflite the Jet Centre Limited (Inflite), two leading, independently-owned British business aviation services companies, announced a collaborative partnership today (24 May) at EBACE to provide their respective business aviation customers with an extended range of paint and MRO services.
Aerocare’s dedicated VIP paint facility (based at Hawarden Airport, Chester, UK) will accommodate Inflite’s MRO aircraft customers who require aircraft painting as part of their maintenance visits.
Paint and MRO on a number of business aircraft types Inflite supports can be booked together, offering a convenient one-stop-shop solution for all aircraft maintenance requirements.
Through this collaboration Inflite will be able to seamlessly extend its Part 145 approval to provide EASA and FAA certification across the aircraft types it supports, including the Embraer Phenom 100 and 300, Praetor and Legacy families, together with the Bombardier Challenger 600 Series whilst their aircraft receive updated or new paint liveries at Aerocare.
The partnership will provide Aerocare with access to new markets, together with the ability to deliver its existing client base an extended Part 145 coverage.
This reduces the need to position engineers and specialised tooling between the North West and Inflite’s London Stansted, Essex home when providing the necessary engineering support during paint, significantly reducing downtime and cost.
