Aircraft Maintenance Technology - 23

Work at the Ardmore facility also includes
work on military Boeing 737 and Boeing 757
aircraft, maintaining U.S. Coast Guard aircraft, such as EADS HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircraft used for search and rescue and maritime
patrol andHC-27 Spartan surveillance aircraft;
Dash 7s and Dash 8s; King Airs and Citation
aircraft. "The only aircraft we haven't ventured
into is the fighter jet," Jamroz said. "It's mainly
turboprops or Boeings on the military side."
He notes Ardmore does launch and
recovery work and hourly calendar inspections for the Coast Guard. The work is not
Depot-Level events (in-depth maintenance
that includes disassembly, inspection, repair,
rebuilding, repainting and flight testing).

ADS-B Upgrades
King Aerospace also aids the military with
ADS-B changes. "We've helped the military

upgrade their transponders and perform
upgrades related to that regulatory change,"
King said.
The company developed the three- to
four-person teams comprising avionics and
structures experts to go to military bases
and do these installations. Teams recently
completed upgrades in South Korea through
the SEMA program. "We make sure they
have the right parts, arrange their travel,
and they do the work," he said.

Ready for Future Growth
King Aerospace's Ardmore facility employs
90 people within its four hangars, one of
which is large enough to house multiple
Boeing-sized aircraft. The company has
had up to eight aircraft at the facility at a
time, but it can only fit three Boeings into
its largest hangar at once.

"This situation drove us to look for new
opportunities," King said. "For the last year,
we've explored the merits of constructing a
new hangar. We partnered with the Ardmore
Development Authority to construct a new
hangar at the Ardmore Air Park and it's big
enough to hold five 737s or a mixture of large
aircraft."
As the company grows, King stresses it
will adhere to the old Texan promise that
"their word is their bond."
He explaied, "King Aerospace will do what
we say we will do, and you can take that to
the bank."
