January 6th, 2015 marks the official commencement of operations in PSA’s full service maintenance base at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
Charlotte is PSA’s third maintenance base, joining Dayton, Ohio and Canton/Akron, Ohio. The transition from a base providing line maintenance to a full service maintenance base in Charlotte was no small endeavor for all of the current Charlotte maintenance employees, the many recently hired Charlotte maintenance employees, and for PSA as a whole.
The new maintenance facility will:
- Enhance PSA’s ability to support the scheduled and unscheduled maintenance requirements for the rapidly growing fleet of large RJ aircraft
- Provide significantly improved operational efficiency, dispatch reliability and more rapid recovery of out-of-service aircraft
- Improve aircraft appearance and the product being presented to our customers
This facility can simultaneously house two CRJ-900 aircraft and will be capable of performing the full-service level of maintenance presently being accomplished at the DAY and CAK maintenance bases.
Thank you to all of employees and airport personnel that assisted in PSA’s newest milestone!
