Spirit to operate from Baker hangar at Meacham
Baker Aviation recently constructed hangar facilities at Meacham for large business class aircraft to elevate its growing repair station and charter operations. The state-of-the-art facility will come in handy for Spirit.
Spirit Aeronautics will provide leading-edge avionics installation and complex modifications in partnership with Baker's repair station business.

Spirit Aeronautics, an avionics solutions provider for business, special mission and military aircraft based at John Glenn Columbus International airport in Columbus, Ohio, is expanding to a key location at Meacham International airport in Texas. Serving the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, Spirit will operate from Baker Aviation's new 70,000 sq ft hangar facilities, providing avionics modifications and flight line support for local aircraft operators.

Baker Aviation recently constructed aircraft hangar facilities at Meacham for large business class aircraft to elevate its growing repair station and charter operations. This new expansion created an opportunity for partnership with Spirit Aeronautics to provide leading-edge avionics installation and complex modifications in partnership with Baker's repair station business.

“We saw an increasing need to provide high-level avionics services in the Dallas/Fort Worth area,” remarks Spirit CEO Rick Ochs. “Baker Aviation has designed state-of-the art facilities with the capability for our team to continue providing the same level of avionics services and support that we've done for more than 20 years at our Ohio location.”

Baker president Stan Baker adds: “Spirit Aeronautics has been highly regarded by our team and the business aviation industry for many years. The timing in bringing its unique services to Texas to complement our growing aircraft maintenance, management and charter operations perfectly aligns with our growth strategies. In our new hangar facilities at Meacham, we now offer a full range of professional MRO services to business aircraft operators for our mutual clients.”
