Earlier this month, Signature
Flight Support purchased the assets of Elliott Aviation of Omaha at Eppley
Field expanding Signature’s Midwest footprint
and adding to its Signature TECHNICAir maintenance business.
The newly acquired FBO and
Part 145 aircraft maintenance facility includes an executive terminal, ramps,
parking and hangar space. The FBO facility will be rebranded as Signature
Flight Support and will continue to offer Part 145 aircraft maintenance under
the Signature TECHNICAir brand.
Signature TECHNICAir Omaha
is an FAA certified repair station and a Hawker Beechcraft authorised service centre
for King Air aircraft. Maintenance services are offered for piston, turboprops
and light to medium jets and include scheduled and unscheduled airframe
maintenance, inspections and repairs.
Commenting on the acquisition,
S. Michael Scheeringa, president of Signature Flight Support said “Elliott
Aviation has a long history and a very well-respected name in our industry.
They are one of the innovators in business and general aviation and for over 75
years they have been known for providing exceptional service to their
customers. We are proud to bring this location into Signature’s global network
and welcome David Poole, Station Manager and the world-class staff of Omaha to the Signature
Flight Support family.”
“Our purchase agreement with
Signature Flight Support is the right strategic move for our company,” said
Wynn Elliott, chief executive officer of Elliott Aviation. “Our Omaha facility is a
beautiful location with highly-talented individuals, however, as we build our
focus on growing the MRO business, it allows for us to move to opportunities
more widely dispersed throughout the country. We are confident that Signature
Flight Support offers the employees at the Omaha facility the best opportunity to
flourish in their careers.”
Rebranding will take place
over the coming weeks and the operation of the facility will not be effected.
