Yingling Aviation Adds Skycatcher Repair Authority

US Assembly Site Is Also First To Receive Approval From The FAA

Yingling Aviation has become the first facility in the world approved by the FAA to maintain, inspect, and alter the Cessna 162 Skycatcher S-LSA aircraft.  The authority was added to Yingling's Part 145 Repair Station Operations Specifications last month.  Yingling is currently the only active Skycatcher assembly site as well.  The Wichita Mid-Continent Airport-based firm has already received and completed the re-assembly of 8 of the all-metal, single engine piston, high-wing monoplanes.

"This receipt of this authority represents a significant accomplishment for Yingling," said Bob Gallop, Yingling's vice-president, Repair Station Operations.  "Since the Model 162 is a completely new aircraft, we were creating precedent with every step in the process.  It required a great deal of cooperation among Yingling, Cessna and the FAA in Washington, D.C., but we are gratified to be the first Repair Station to have repair, inspection and alteration of the Model 162 Skycatcher added to our Operation Specifications.  This means we can not only perform maintenance on the airplanes, we are approved to sign off on the repairs and return them to service," he added.

Yingling completed an expansion of its facilities in 2008 in anticipation of the arrival of Skycatchers from the Shenyang manufacturing facilities in China. Yingling's Kansas Aviation subsidiary recently became the first flight training operation to offer instruction in the Cessna Model 162 Skycatcher.
