NEW CENTURY, Kan. – CAV Ice Protection has received FAA approval to operate a repair station at its North American Operations Center at the New Century Airport (KIXD) near Kansas City. The limited accessory repair station is approved to repair and overhaul TKS ice protection equipment and has begun conducting repairs.
Prior to approval, the sole TKS repair station was located at the CAV Ice Protection manufacturing facility in Consett, United Kingdom.
“The North American repair station provides us with the ability to be considerably more responsive to our customers’ repair needs,” said Thomas Stellwag II, repair station manager.
“The repair station is in the same facility with the engineering team who designed all of these parts and, as the manufacturers, we are uniquely able to diagnose necessary repairs,” Stellwag added. “We have equipment custom designed to diagnose and repair parts we manufacture.”
CAV Ice Protection provides ice protection systems for numerous aircraft manufacturers, including Cessna Aircraft, Cirrus Aircraft, Commander Premier Aircraft, Diamond Aircraft, Beechcraft Corp., Hawker, Mooney Aircraft, Piper Aircraft, Quest Aircraft and Socata EADS.
