SmartSky, provider of the most advanced inflight air-to-ground (ATG) connectivity for business aviation, today announced Precision Support Services has joined the SmartSky dealer network as a sales and installation partner.

The Oregon-based aviation company offers full Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) services and has already completed an installation of SmartSky LITE on a Pilatus PC-12.

Grayson Barrows, General Manager, Repair Station at Precision said: “Precision’s partnership with SmartSky is important because it adds capabilities to a proven inflight connectivity product already making waves in the marketplace.

“We chose to partner with SmartSky because they are delivering an unequaled connection for every seat in the aircraft with bandwidth to spare.

“It’s particularly exciting to be able to offer streaming-level performance for light jets and turboprops like the PC-12. Plus, their ability to offer equally high-performance moving data to and from the aircraft makes new inflight capabilities possible to meet our customers’ mission requirements.”

Located in McMinnville, Oregon, Precision is well-known in the industry supporting both fixed-wing and rotor-wing services, including full maintenance and avionics as a FAA Part 145 repair station. Precision specializes in Beech, Cessna, Mooney, Pilatus, and Piper aircraft along with Airbus, Bell and Guimbal helicopters.

Aria Bahawdory, Director of MRO Account Management for SmartSky said: “Precision’s aircraft maintenance expertise strengthens SmartSky’s presence in the region.

“Precision has done an outstanding job with the PC-12 installation and their extensive experience with Cessna and Pilatus makes them a desirable MRO partner for SmartSky and aircraft operators.”
