C&L Aviation Services, A C&L Aviation Group company, has received Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) approval. This certification allows C&L to perform maintenance services on commercial aircraft, defined as any aircraft that sells individual seats or full-aircraft rental services, that are registered in Canada.
The company performs depot-level maintenance from its FAA and EASA approved, 140,000 sq ft Part 145 maintenance facility located in Bangor, Maine. It focuses on regional aircraft, including ERJ 135/140/145, Saab 340, ATR 42/72, Dash-8 and CRJ 200/700, and corporate aircraft including Challenger 604/605, Hawker 800 series, Citation and Beechjet 400A types.
“Having the TCCA authorisation in place is great news for our Canadian customers,” says CEO Chris Kilgour. “We already provide parts and component repairs to our Canadian customers, so having the ability to perform quality maintenance on their aircraft here in Maine is a natural fit.”
Currently C&L operates two large maintenance hangars at its Maine location, which also includes on-site parts warehouses, a custom interior shop, on-site avionics, engineering and component shops, and a 20,000 sq ft paint hangar. Recently it was announced that the company is also expanding with several building projects in Maine and with a warehouse facility in Texas.
