CAV Aerospace has received FAA certification as a Part 145 repair station for the proprietary TKS ice protection system. Its facility at the Salina Airport in Salina, Kan., is now approved to repair TKS ice protection components.
“This achievement is another building block for the continued growth of CAV Aerospace’s MRO capabilities and an extension of our TKS ice protection services,” said CAV Aerospace President Kevin Hawley.
With the ability to repair TKS parts, CAV Aerospace, manufacturer of the TKS ice protection system, can reduce aircraft owner downtime, lower costs and provide more responsive service to more than 6,000 customers who fly with the TKS ice protection system, according to company officials.
The CAV Aerospace repair station may be contacted directly by telephone at 888-865-5511 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAV Aerospace was recently approved for Cessna Caravan, Bonanza G36 and Quest Kodiak flight into known icing conditions. CAV’s TKS systems provide anti-icing protection by exuding a measured amount of glycol-based ice protection fluid through precision laser-drilled microscopic holes in wing leading edges fashioned of titanium. There is also a dispersion mechanism for propellers.
