Gama Aviation’s new Las Vegas repair station completes its coast-to-coast coverage of the US
We are proud to announce that we have received Federal Aviation Administration approval for our repair station based at McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas.
The certification, under Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) 145, covers work on airframes, engines, instruments and radio equipment, enabling us to provide our clients with a full range of support services from our Las Vegas base.
Dennis Richey, executive vice president, engineering, of Gama Aviation, commented: “We are delighted to announce that our Las Vegas base has received FAR 145 certification. As a global operator, it is vital that we can provide our clients with a full suite of services in all the markets we serve. Clients want to be confident that wherever their aircraft may be, they will receive a consistently high level of service and this certification underlines the standards we offer here at McCarran.”
We have identified a strong business aviation market in the region centered on Las Vegas. Analysis(1) of industry data reveals that Nevada and its neighboring states of California, Arizona, and Utah together have a fleet of 2,927 private jets, accounting for more than 12% of the total US fleet. Of these aircraft, 335 were delivered between 2010 and 2014.
As well as our Las Vegas support services, we offer charter, aircraft management services and a network of 10 other coast-to-coast facilities as well as a mobile line maintenance(2) service across the US. Currently, we respond to around 2,500 call-outs from our clients in the US every year, and we have flown over one million miles and driven over 500,000 to support AOG (aircraft on the ground) and line maintenance situations.
