It has been wonderful for me to see the business aviation community support each other through these unprecedented times. I’ve also enjoyed watching the various organizations take this time to adapt to the updates, create efficiencies in their organizations and in some cases take advantage of the forced aircraft downtime. Football legend Roger Staubach said, “There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.” That sentiment not only applies to the sports world, but also with our Strategic Partners that do more than what is expected every day.
Like all of our Strategic Partners, these leaders in the aircraft maintenance and avionics teams must pass muster with our Advisory Board who have taken into account their experience with each vendors’ customer service, knowledge of the industry, history and overall performance.
Based on that criteria, we recommend three leading maintenance companies to service your aircraft – RBR Aviation, Lowcountry Aviation MRO and Stevens Aerospace and Defense Systems. Since your maintenance needs vary by region, there isn’t just one we would recommend.
With two locations in Dallas (KDAL and KRBD), RBR Aviation has over 60,000 square feet of hangar space and over 50 certified technicians ready to support a single maintenance service to servicing your entire fleet. RBR is a FAR-145 repair station focusing on keeping your asset in top shape with their expertise in heavy maintenance, inspections, avionics, structural repairs, and parts.
Lowcountry Aviation MRO is also a Part 145 repair station located on the East Coast at Lowcountry Regional Airport (KRBW) in Walterboro, SC. Routine maintenance, scheduled inspections, major structural and avionics modifications can all be taken care of at Lowcountry. Additionally, they are an authorized service center for Sky Arrow aircraft. As a fully-integrated operation, Lowcountry also offers FBO services, charters, storage and has a fuel farm onsite.
Established in 1950, Stevens Aerospace and Defense Systems has been a respected leader for private and military aircraft maintenance, repair, refurbishment, and avionics upgrades. Their expertise range from King Air turboprops to Citations, Embraer, Challengers and Gulfstreams. With four strategically-located maintenance centers, Stevens is within reach of 80% of the US population given a 90-minute flight. If coming to one of their locations is not feasible, they have a dedicated mobile service team covering the US and abroad specializing in individual part 91 and fleet part 135 operators.
These carefully-vetted maintenance providers go the extra mile to ensure that you and your investment are properly taken care now and for years to come. As always, mention you are a Paragon Preferred customer for special pricing.
