Heavy Maintenance Professionals

Empire Aerospace got its start performing heavy checks on Twin Otters and Beech 99s for the Forest Service. In 1988, we were contracted by FedEx to fly and maintain Caravan 208s. Since 1990, we have been performing heavy checks on FAR 121 aircraft. In 2006, we received our Part 145 Certificate and added Bombardier 8 all series, Embraer EMB 120 all series, Saab 240 all series and the Cessna C208 all series to our Ops Specs.
