Bismarck Aero Center has been awarded repair station certification from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to become North Dakota’s newest repair station.
Under the repair station certification (title code 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 145), aircraft maintenance facilities are able to provide
aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul services with more FAA oversight in process and procedures. Repair stations are also held to higher standards by the FAA in areas such as quality control and training.
“Our complete in-house repair station now allows more flexibility and faster turnaround times, giving customers the support they have come to expect from us,” stated Howard Burns, director of maintenance at Bismarck Aero Center. “For our business, this is the next step for us to be able to do more for our customers and make sure that we do our part to keep them safe,”
Earlier this year, Bismarck Aero Center was recognized by the National Air Transportation Association and the FAA for annual training of 100 percent of all company maintenance technicians. A company must invest a minimum of 12 hours of training in their employees each year to be considered.
