Pentastar and Key Air sign MoU


Companies sign memorandum of understanding for new Pentsatr repair station at Waterbury-Oxford Airport

Pentastar Aviation and Key Air have signed a memorandum of understanding for the opening of a Pentastar Aviation-operated satellite repair station at Key Air’s world-class FBO facility at Waterbury-Oxford Airport. The new location marks Pentastar’s first East Coast operations, complementing their Michigan headquarters and Van Nuys FBO.

“As one of the premier aircraft service providers in North America, we’re excited by this presumptive expansion of our service base to include the New York City metro market,” Edsel B. Ford II, Pentastar chairman and owner said. “Upon finalization of the agreement with our colleagues at Key Air, we look forward to providing East Coast customers with the technical expertise, passionate customer focus and attention to detail that have made Pentastar’s maintenance, repair and avionics services so trusted in our industry.”

“We are excited about our alliance with Pentastar. They are a great national brand known for their quality maintenance services and we are pleased to have them open a maintenance center at our Waterbury-Oxford FBO.” states Bob Marinace, president and chief executive of Key Air. “Our managed clients and tenants will directly benefit from having a provider of all levels of maintenance, inspections and installations right here in the Northeast.”

Pentastar Aviation and Key Air expect to announce finalisation of their strategic alliance, as well as the timetable for launching the new Pentastar facility later this year.
