Midcoast Aviation recently celebrated the 25th completion of a Challenger 605 cabin interior. Midcoast Aviation began performing completions in the mid-1980s. With increased demand for these services, the company launched a dedicated completions business in 1999, when it delivered its first cabin interior of a Challenger 604. Today, Midcoast Aviation is a Bombardier-authorized completions center for Challenger 605, Challenger 850, Global 5000 and Global XRS aircraft.
"Challenger completions are a cornerstone of our business and we greatly value our long-standing partnership with Bombardier on this product family," says Don Petersen, Midcoast Aviation president. "We continue to improve our delivery processes while performing to the highest-quality standards upon which Midcoast’s excellent reputation is based."
In February, Midcoast Aviation opened a green completions delivery center as the latest in an ongoing series of facility and service improvements at its St. Louis Downtown Airport operation. The company has in-house design and engineering departments, along with on-site cabinetry, upholstery, composite, avionics, sheet metal and paint shops.
Midcoast Aviation, an affiliate of the Jet Aviation Group of Companies, is a full-service AS9100-certified aircraft maintenance, modifications and completions provider. The company employs more than 2,000 people at the St. Louis Downtown Airport location and its satellites in Boston/Bedford, MA; Chicago, IL; St. Louis, MO; Palm Beach, FL, and Teterboro, NJ, including the recently acquired MRO and completions facility Savannah Air Center.
