Berry Aviation has announced the grand opening of its 31,400-square-foot maintenance hangar in San Marcos, Texas. The company has been preparing for the maintenance hangar and received 10 new Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 145 Class Ratings in late 2019. Its repair station certification includes airframe, powerplant, propeller and accessories, with FAA authorization to work on Beechcraft King Airs, as well as some Cessna Citation and Bombardier Learjet models, and others.
The larger maintenance space for Berry Aviation specifically includes a 19,300-square-foot aircraft maintenance area, a 3,500-square-foot component repair and overhaul area and a 2,800-square-foot parts department. The company says the new hangar adds enough aircraft capacity to give them an estimated 75% increase in hands-on maintenance work and also enhances back shop support for component repair and streamlines supply and parts operations.
