DALLAS — Dallas Aeronautical Services (DAS) recently began construction of a new facility in Cedar Hill, Texas. The new 50,400-square-foot facility, which will span over three acres of land, is being built in Cedar Hill’s High Meadows Industrial Park.
Target completion date is first quarter of 2014.
DAS currently operates from five separate buildings for a total of just 21,500 square feet of space, company officials noted. However, the new aircraft component repair station has been custom designed to provide DAS with the space needed to provide all of its services under one roof. The new facility will feature two autoclaves, two custom paint centers, an environmentally controlled clean room, walk-in oven, and transmissivity test range.
A machine shop with four and five axis capabilities and press forming capabilities, TIG and MIG welding, an NTD lab, and three dust collection and sanding centers will be onsite as well. The facility will also feature a structures shop, a radome shop, and an advanced composite and thrust reverser overhaul shop.
“Our new facility is a substantial investment in the future of DAS,” said Mike Manning, Vice President, Dallas Aeronautical Services. “Being able to provide our entire repair and overhaul capabilities under one roof allows us to support aggressive turn times while still maintaining the highest quality standards.”
In addition to the new facility in Texas, DAS Brazil, a subsidiary of DAS, is expanding into a new facility in São José dos Campos, Brazil in the first half of 2014.
DAS is an FAA Part 145 Repair Station that provides support for aircraft owners through the overhaul and repair of composites, structures and assemblies. Specializing in thrust reversers, control surfaces, engine cowls, pylon and floor panels, as well as radome repair and testing, DAS provides support for Bombardier Learjet and Challenger, Gulfstream, Piaggio, Embraer, Boeing, and Hawker Beechcraft and Beechjet components.
