Heavy Maintenance

The aviation business demands excellence and innovation.

Empire Aerospace is a certified MRO facility, operating under a Part 145 certificate. Housed in a modern 50,000+ square foot facility, we provide state-of-the-art maintenance for your aircraft.

As a division of Empire Airlines, Empire Aerospace boasts an excellent maintenance history.

We’ve been maintaining planes since our inception as Clearwater Flying Service in 1977. Forest Service contracts led to heavy checks on Twin Otters and Beech 99s. Maintenance work expanded again in 1988 when Empire landed a FedEx contract to fly and maintain Caravan 208s.

Since 1990, Empire has been performing heavy checks on FAR 121 aircraft. We began with Fairchild F27s, then Fokker F27s, Shorts 360s, and ATR 42/72s.

Since receiving our Part 145 Certificate in 2006, Empire has added Bombardier Dash 8 all series, Embraer  EMB 120 all series, Saab 340 all series, and the Cessna C208 all series to our ops specs. We now have more than 15 years of experience maintaining large turboprop aircraft

Empire has recently added the Embraer ERJ-145 onto our Ops Specs and hope to add more types in the future.
