Hawker Beechcraft opens piston facility at PDK

Hawker Beechcraft Global Customer Support (GCS) will open a new satellite Hawker Beechcraft Services maintenance facility at DeKalb-Peachtree Airport (PDK) in Atlanta this month. This new facility, which opens on March 12, will specialize in full piston engine aircraft services, offering annual inspections, routine maintenance inspections, avionics checks, recertification, oil changes, and performance and comfort upgrades, including the Bonanza Xtra package.

Although Hawker Beechcraft Services at PDK will focus on piston engine aircraft, the center is capable of servicing any aircraft in the Hawker Beechcraft fleet, including King Air, Premier and Hawker aircraft, company officials said.

“DeKalb-Peachtree is one of the busiest general aviation airports in the country and this new facility positions Hawker Beechcraft Services to better serve transient operators as well as those based on the field,” said Christi Tannahill, senior vice president, Global Customer Support. “From unscheduled maintenance and aircraft-on-the-ground support to avionics checks and recertification, Hawker Beechcraft Services at PDK is the perfect complement to our existing full-service facility at the Fulton County Airport (FTY) on the west side of Atlanta.”

The facility at PDK consists of 12,000 square feet of hangar space and 2,300 square feet of office and shop space. Hawker Beechcraft plans to hire up to 20 technicians there in the next 18 to 24 months as the new maintenance facility ramps up. An open house is planned for May
