Banyan Air Service celebrated its 35th anniversary this year and gained many new accomplishments. The Banyan Maintenance team added the Challenger 605, Falcon 900EX, HondaJet, and CJ4 to their repair station certification and the Hawker 800 XP and 850 XP to their Chilean Repair Station Certification. Along with becoming a service center for the HondaJet, they became a GHAE Authorized Service Center.
Our avionics team finished 2014 with some special accomplishments as well. They hosted a Garmin seminar, a NextGen seminar, Garmin G500H installation on Eurcopter Model EC-350, numerous dual Garmin 600 installations on TBM and PC-12 aircraft. In addition they have new STCs; one for the Satcom Direct Router on Lear 60, Falcon 50, and Falcon 900 aircraft and the other which amends our Gulfstream STC to include the Satcom Direct Router on GII, GIIB, and G IV/IVSP aircraft. The year ended by completing a FANS system on a Boeing 727.
At NBAA 2014, Piaggio Aerospace signed an agreement to partner with Banyan to develop a centralized support facility for Piaggio maintenance, repairs and parts inventory. As we look forward to the new year, Banyan will work hard to gain more experience and knowledge to better serve our customers.
