ACI Jet has finalized the acquisition of a Van Nuys Airport-based (VNY) aircraft maintenance operation. The company will station technicians and two mobile aircraft vehicles at the facility with plans for additional vehicles and crew in 2023.
ACI Jet’s mobile unscheduled aircraft maintenance (“AOG”) division supports the company’s Repair Station customers and provides on-demand support for transient and managed fleet aircraft throughout California.
The coverage area for the new location will include Van Nuys Airport to Burbank Airport (BUR), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Long Beach Airport (LGB), Camarillo Airport (CMA), and Santa Barbara Airport (SBA).
The company’s primary focus is on Bombardier Global and Challenger-series aircraft and Cessna Citation business jets; however, the AOG response team is capable of providing services for a full range of business aircraft.
“Our goal is to be responsive to the needs of our customers at the airport while balancing the existing resources provided by some of our partners,” Senior Vice President of Aircraft Maintenance David Jensen said. “A lot of our customers, including large fleet operators with whom we have long-standing relationships, have asked specifically for ACI Jet’s support in Van Nuys, and we want to deliver on their needs. Basing vehicles and technicians locally will reduce our response times to virtually zero while bringing our renowned Repair Station capabilities and resources for select airframes within reach. This will be unrivaled coverage and service for ACI Jet’s customers.”
