Allows Service Expansion Into Booming Saudi Market
King Aerospace Commercial
Corporation (KACC) in Ardmore, OK was recently approved for a
General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) Authorization/Repair
The GACA, an aviation regulatory entity, manages and operates
all international and domestic airports and aircraft in the Kingdom
of Saudi Arabia. Representatives with King tell ANN they expect the
GACA Repair Station Certification will open the door to growing
international aviation business.
"We’re proud to be one of only four GACA approved
facilities in the United States," said Don Salisbury, Director of
Corporate Aircraft Services. "This is a major opportunity to build
our reputation not only nationally, but globally."
KACC specializes in large aircraft interior completion and
refurbishment, avionics modifications, and aircraft painting. KACC
is presently in the process of acquiring additional ratings in the
maintenance and completions arena.
King Aerospace Commercial Corporation has onsite a full service
cabinet shop, wood finish shop, upholstery shop, avionics shop, and
paint shop which offers custom corporate paint services.
The KACC facility is expanding rapidly. The Ardmore facility is
capable of housing wide-body aircraft and currently has four
