Summit Aviation has added the Leonardo AW139 helicopter to its Part 145 Certified Repair Station certificate.
This newly added capability allows Summit to perform aircraft maintenance including inspections, overhaul, repair and/or modification for AW139 owners and operators.
“We have been serving similar types of aircraft owners and operators since 1960,” said Ralph Kunz, vice president and general manager of Summit Aviation in a statement. “Adding the AW139 aircraft to our certificate aligns with our capabilities and offers those owners and operators an experienced and established alternative provider.”
In addition to general and corporate aviation, Summit has a broad customer base including state and local law enforcement, the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Government Non DoD and special mission and international militaries.
