All scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and inspections
We are an authorized Cessna Service Station and have extensive experience in all Cessna piston designs.
Aircraft Recovery and Storage
We offer complete aircraft recovery and secure indoor or outdoor storage of damaged aircraft for indefinite periods. Insurance companies frequently use this service to preserve evidence and to maintain salvage value for future, closed bid resale. TAS is always aware that post-accident damage is costly, so we strive to secure, transport, and store the aircraft in the best way possible.
Many damaged aircraft can be made ‘ferryable’ in order to get them to our facility for full repairs. This method is preferred for several reasons; while we can disassemble and load an airplane in one day, it typically takes many days to reassemble. In addition to bolting the parts together, reassembly requires rigging of all controls, servicing hydraulic systems, rigging landing gear systems, etc. There are many other details, depending on the type of aircraft involved.
Cessna 210 cantilever wing structural repairs
From years of doing numerous inspections on 210s and 210 wings, we found that many in the aging fleet suffer from loose main spar casting ‘Huck bolt’ pins. The slight movement between the castings, the spar cap, and the spar web elongates these pin holes, causing black runs or ‘streamers’ around the head or tail of the 30 pins in each wing. We have formulated a special process that allows installation of 1/64″ over-sized pins with the proper interference fit.
Columbia/Corvalis structural repairs
We have added composite repair capabilities as well as include the critical environmental controls needed for these repairs to the Columbia/Corvalis series.
