AirCorps Aviation, a leading aircraft restoration and fabrication company, based in Bemidji, Minnesota, is proud to announce approval and designation as Part 145 Repair Station #8ORR202D by the Federal Aviation Administration.
“This is a great achievement and a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our entire team,” said AirCorps Aviation General & Accountable Manager Erik Hokuf “Earning this FAA certification as a Part 145 FAA Repair Station adds an important new dimension to the work we do every day in support of our current and future customers in the aviation industry.”
The Repair Station will advance AirCorps’ focus on component repair and fabrication, and leverage the years of experience and resources at their disposal. Erik Hokuf, Lance Sumstad, Sharon Grey, and the rest of the AirCorps Aviation team worked diligently to earn this sought-after certification. As a Repair Station, AirCorps will initially start with a Limited Rating with landing gear and accessories as ratings.
Now with the initial phases of application, approval and designation behind them the AirCorps Aviation team plans to expand capabilities in the near future in support of a broader customer and product range.
“We are excited to expand our capabilities in the aerospace sector. We have been a service provider in the legacy, warbird and broader aviation markets and are still looking to grow in those areas. I want to thank all the employees that have worked so hard to achieve this certification,” said Lance Sumstad, AirCorps Aviation Chief Inspector.
AirCorps Aviation obtained FAA PMA Quality System (PQ04274CE) certification in August of 2015 and recently added the capability of aluminum heat treatment to AMS2770.
The dedicated team has propelled the globally recognized business into the broader aerospace manufacturing arena and has brought innovative products to the market such as their AirCorps Library online repository of technical information.
