Hawthorne Global Aviation Services has served as an Embraer authorised service centre since 2006, providing base maintenance service and support for the Legacy 600/650 product lines. The company has now expanded its Embraer ASC capabilities agreement to include full base maintenance product service and support for the Phenom 100/300, Legacy 450/500, and Praetor 500/600 airframes.
Located at Long Island MacArthur airport, Hawthorne is able to expand its aircraft maintenance and support services to the Phenom and Praetor family of aircraft in the New York metropolitan area as well as the northeastern US. Its goal is to provide aircraft owners and operators outstanding product service and support for their Embraer aircraft requiring base maintenance services. In addition to these base services, Hawthorne is now offering AOG service on a 24/7 basis throughout the region for any aircraft requiring support outside of its Long Island location.
Capabilities Include: scheduled maintenance/inspections; 24/7 mobile AOG support at all New York metropolitan airports and beyond; pre-purchase inspections; interior refurbishment, modifications and upgrades; avionics repairs and modifications; factory upgrades; wi-fi and cabin management system upgrades; weight and balance; and onsite de-fuel.
Company president Chuck Kegley says: “This is a great opportunity for Hawthorne to provide maintenance support services to Embraer operators in the greater New York area, as well as expanding our 15 year relationship with Embraer. With the addition of our new AOG 24/7 service, Hawthorne is ready to support Embraer's aircraft owners' maintenance needs throughout the northeast.”
