NBAA-BACE 2018 – Booth 2093
Calspan will be exhibiting at the 2018 National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (BACE) this October. This three day event provides current and prospective business aircraft owners, operators, and industry personnel an opportunity to connect. Calspan will have representation from its FAA Part 145 repair station and avionics department at the event.
Calspan is home to an FAA Part 145 certified repair station, located in Niagara Falls, NY. This repair station performs maintenance and modification on Learjet, Gulfstream, Beechcraft, and Cessna aircraft. Calspan’s repair station is vertically integrated into its world-renowned flight research program, meaning that the same mechanics, technicians, and support staff responsible for providing support to the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School will be supporting your aircraft needs. Calspan is able to perform major inspections and repairs and has onsite machine shops capable of custom mechanical, composite, and metal fabrications. There is no repair too big for Calspan to manage.
The avionics team at Calspan works with each customer to make sure that the equipment installed meets all requirements and special requests. Our in-house staff of aerospace engineers are on hand to develop solutions to unique challenges. Typically tasked with research and development projects, they remain ready to step in for any customer should the need arise. As a certified dealer for Garmin, Gogo Biz, and Rockwell Collins, Calspan is able to install, repair, replace, or upgrade equipment in a way that is proven by manufacturers. Our team is fully capable of installing ADS-B In and ADS-B Out. According to Federal Regulations, all aircraft must be equipped with ADS-B Out, by January 1, 2020 to fly in most controlled airspace. The proximity of Calspan’s repair station to the Niagara Falls International Airport allows for easy access to amenities and competitive fuel prices at the FBO, which Calspan also manages.
The NBAA-BACE takes place October 16-18, 2018 at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC). Register today, and be sure to visit us at booth 2093 to say hello. To learn more about Calspan’s repair and modification, avionics, and FBO services, visit CalspanAirServices.com.
Calspan Aerospace has been a game changer in the aerospace industry for over 70 years. Our roots trace back to the 1940s, beginning as the research and development arm of the Curtiss-Wright Aircraft Corporation, followed by a transition to Cornell Aeronautical Labs – a branch of the university devoted to aviation research – and the genesis of ‘CAL’ in Calspan. Calspan has made a significant impact in aviation, developing and operating in-flight simulator aircraft, conducting the research leading to military specifications for aircraft handling qualities and the airborne simulations of numerous new aircraft designs from the X-15 to the X-35.
Calspan Aerospace has a rich history as an educator, providing ground and flight instruction on stability and control to the world’s test pilots for decades and recently applying our expertise to corporate aviation with a unique Upset Recovery Training program using in-flight simulation technology.
Today, Calspan Aerospace is utilized by many of the world’s largest aerospace companies to assist in development and testing of next generation avionics systems for critical defense missions. In 2013, a Calspan Learjet became the only known business jet to connect with an airborne tanker for refueling. In the same year we circumvented the globe, testing advanced SATCOM technology on our Gulfstream GIII.
