Wichita-based Mid-Continent Instruments has changed its name to Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics. The company says the new name better describes its capabilities and underscores its commitment to provide general aviation repair facilities with a range of services supporting avionics, instruments and power solutions. Services include custom design, manufacturing, overhaul/exchange and repair. The company’s Van Nuys, Calif. facility provides new instrument sales and instrument overhaul.
Sabena Technics, the TAT Group subsidiary specializing in civil and military aircraft maintenance, has acquired EADS Barfield, an aviation support, service and component repair and maintenance operation. The acquisition is a strategic move to further penetrate the American market.
