Hartzell Propeller Inc. named Brinkley Propeller Services, one of Europe’s leading propeller repair and overhaul operations, as its newest Recommended Service Facility in the United Kingdom. Based 40 miles north of Central London in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, Brinkley’s modern 14,250 sq. foot campus was designed for quality, efficiency and meeting on time delivery schedules.
As a Hartzell Recommended Service Facility, Brinkley heavily invested in tooling, equipment and training, and is audited on a regular basis by EASA, other international airworthiness authorities, and by Hartzell, so customers can rest assured their propeller maintenance is being conducted to the highest standards possible.
The addition of Brinkley Propeller Services as Hartzell Propeller’s 27th Recommended Service Facility embodies the company’s commitment to grow facilities around the globe capable of meeting rigorous standards for customer service. In many cases, Hartzell Propeller requirements significantly exceed those of the governing airworthiness authorities.
The company encourages customers to use a Hartzell Recommended Service Facility for propeller repairs and overhauls. As a member of the network, Brinkley provides the highest-quality propeller overhaul and repair work available, reflecting Hartzell’s customer commitment to quality and performance.
To achieve Hartzell’s Recommended Service Facility designation, Brinkley met several stringent requirements, including on-site quality systems and process audits and use of factory trained and highly qualified propeller experts. In addition, the new Recommended Service Facility is required to maintain Hartzell-approved specialized propeller tools and equipment along with meeting the company’s special process approvals on an ongoing basis.
Brinkley joins a network of Hartzell Recommended Service Facilities located throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
