Additional size and equipment allow for increased aircraft refurbishment capabilities.
BANGOR, Maine – C&L Aviation Group has completed the construction of a state-of-the-art 12,000 Sq. Ft. Aircraft Refurbishment Facility at their Bangor, ME campus, next to the company’s aircraft paint hangar. The facility will be utilized to address the increased volume in both regional and corporate aircraft interior refurbishment projects the company has been receiving for the past several years.
“We’ve made substantial investments in space, equipment, and manpower for the aircraft operators we serve,” said Chris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aviation Group. “The new facility, along with increased in-house capabilities, provide us with robust options for customers looking for anything from a basic replacement of soft goods to complete interior upgrades and modifications.”
The new facility is equipped with a Gerber leather cutting machine, laser engraving machine, paint booth, seatbelt manufacturing center, separate assembly and disassembly areas, and more.
The new facility is one of 5 building projects C&L has completed since the start of the pandemic. In 2020 the company purchased a local events center near the Bangor airport and converted it into a component shop, where they work on smaller aircraft components. The company also constructed a new 27,000-square-foot aircraft parts warehouse, a 5,000-square-foot add-on to one of their hangars for storage, and a complete renovation of their corporate aircraft maintenance hangar which includes new floors, walls, customer offices, and a state-of-the-art interior showcase and design center.
C&L Aviation Group is an FAA and EASA-approved industry leader in servicing, maintaining, and supporting operators in the corporate and regional aviation industry. In addition to aircraft and engine sales and leasing programs, C&L offers parts support, heavy maintenance, interior refurbishment, aircraft teardown, disassembly services, and aircraft management.
