What If You Are Not Listed on My Engine Model as P&WC approved?

Aircraft engine overhaul is not a necessary remedy for all engine issues.  Covington Aircraft does turbine maintenance on all PT6A engines and can usually take care of any maintenance issue.  If for some reason Covington can’t help you with your problem, they will point you in the right direction to someone who can.

What Kind of Treatment Will I Get If I Just Have One Aircraft?

Covington Aircraft has grown their business one aircraft and one customer at a time and not based on just a quick sale.  Covington prides itself on looking out for their customer’s best interests and builds a relationship that addresses more than just an engine.  Their goal is to make you feel appreciated whether you own one aircraft or a thousand.

Do You Do Airframe Work?

Having experienced, Flight Safety trained personnel, Covington Aircraft can do annuals, 100 hours and most service related work on almost any airframe.  If they are unable to do so, they will recommend someone who can to be sure your expectations are met.

Can You Take Care of My Engine Change?

With our new 47,000 square foot hangar facility in Okulmgee, Oklahoma engine changes are no problem.  However, if necessary, Covington Aircraft can come to your location.  Remember, if you have your aircraft engine overhaul done at our facility, removal and installation is labor free.
