Talon Air Extends Aircraft Maintenance to the Public
Republic Airport Farmingdale, N.Y.-based Talon Air, an aircraft management and charter operator, has expanded its services after receiving FAA certification of its FAR Part 145 repair station. The MRO offers Talon’s previously in-house maintenance services to the public. The new facility will focus on repairs, inspections and avionics installations for all classes of aircraft. “Following the issuance of the repair station certification, our licensed A&P mechanics immediately began a 72-month Gulfstream IV inspection,” said Jason Figarsky, director of maintenance. The company recently completed construction of a 95,000-sq-ft hangar and office complex and converted its existing 40,000-sq-ft hangar into a 30,000-sq-ft maintenance facility with 10,000 sq ft of maintenance shops and office space. Additionally, a battery shop will be available to repair, replace or charge main and emergency batteries on Hawker Beechcraft products and other aircraft. Talon’s AOG GoTeam provides rapid mobile response directly to an aircraft anywhere in the Northeast with the parts and tools necessary to return an aircraft to service. The MRO has both a mobile response vehicle and a Cessna 206 to respond to AOG situations.
