A Brief History
Turbine Aircraft Services was established at Wiley Post Airport in January of 2001 by Mr. Mike Harbison and Mr. Curtis Morphew for the maintenance and repair of a broad range of jet and propeller driven aircraft. These include the various models of Beechcraft King Airs, Cessna Citations, Bombardier Learjets, Bombardier Challengers and Hawker Beechcraft lines. We also maintain a sizeable clientele of smaller single engine aircraft from various manufacturers including Cessna, Beechcraft, Cirrus and Piper. In 2013, we were honored to be designated as an Authorized Service Facility for Cessna and in 2015 we were chosen again to become an Authorized Service Facility for Beechcraft. We hold Certified Repair Station certificate number TBWR469X and we follow a very regimented inspection, re-inspection protocol. We pride ourselves on delivering value-driven, quality maintenance that helps insure a client’s asset will retain its worth. Our team is ever focused on delivering discrepancy free aircraft, every time. We also offer many in-house, follow on services to include avionics, parts sales, non-destructive testing, battery servicing and aircraft sales.
Our Growth and Facilities
After a very successful first year in business, it was determined that we needed more space with more modern facilities in order to better service our growing client base. Therefore, the decision was made to upgrade from our existing leased space and went on to purchase a new hangar here at Wiley Post.
After another 10 years of taking great care of our customers and growing our business, we were faced with that same familiar problem and needed more room to grow. An opportunity presented itself in December of 2012 to purchase a recently built hangar with more floor space, larger offices, and better customer service facilities all the while being very close to our existing location.
Our growth also includes a significant amount of internal investment to be able to include more in-house services. One of the most significant is the number of non-destructive testing capabilities.
Today we complete a vast majority of the required NDT inspections for our clients in-house. In 2015 we expanded the capabilities of our Certified Repair Station to include the limited ratings of Radio and Instruments which affords us the opportunity to perform various avionics related inspections, repairs and installations in-house. In 2016 we added the capabilities of performing inspections on various Ni-cad and lead acid main ship’s batteries along with various makes and models of emergency power packs.
