Active Aero Services Earns Part 145 Certification from the FAA

BELLEVILLE, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Active Aero Services has earned its 14 CFR, Part 145 Certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This certificate provides authority to perform aircraft, power plant and limited avionics maintenance services to other companies and individuals at its Willow Run Airport facilities.

Active Aero Services’ new service will offer expert maintenance and repair services for over 200 different types of aircraft, both piston and turbine powered. This makes Active Aero Services the only Part 145 repair operation based at Willow Run Airport. This capability enhances the Active Aero Services’ Fixed Base Operation (FBO), which also offers aircraft de-icing, refueling, hangar rental, and related services.

“Our FBO customers are delighted with this full range of capabilities,” exclaimed Chris Healy, Chief Executive Officer of Active Aero Services’ parent company, Active Aero Group. He added, “In the past, if you required aircraft maintenance at Willow Run, you needed to bring your mechanic to the airport. This was a very inconvenient, inefficient, and costly undertaking. Now, Willow Run Airport has the full service FBO that it truly deserves.”

Obtaining this FAA 14 CFR, Part 145 Certificate is a serious undertaking. Applicant firms are required to undergo rigorous FAA review. Preparations prior to FAA inspection include technical manual writing, extensive training, and forms completion. “All of the credit for this hard work goes out to David Spahn,” said Mike Reardon, Vice President of Technical Services for Active Aero Services. “I am confident that David will continue to do a great job managing our new Repair Station.”
