Tempus Jets of Newport News, Va., is relocating its FAA Part 145 repair station and interior completions businesses from Richmond, Va., to Brunswick Executive Airport (BXM) in Maine.

Initially, the company has leased 34,532 sq ft of space in a 166,355-sq-ft hangar at BXM, a former Naval Air Station. The hangar’s size and “excellent condition” will allow the company eventually to expand its aircraft repair and completions business to include Boeing and Airbus business jets, FAA Part 21 aircraft certification and engineering, and FAA designated engineering representation.

By the end of this month, the company anticipates it will be working on two turbine airplanes at BXM. Tempus expects to complete the transfer of some $7 million in tooling, ground support equipment and spare parts to Brunswick from Richmond by the end of November.

In addition to the growth potential of the airport’s existing facilities, the “pro-business” environment of the state of Maine and the airport authority attracted the company to BXM, said Tempus.
