Aircraft Maintenance & Modification Services

Aircraft Modifications

Calspan Aerospace supports industry innovators through our demonstrated ability to design, fabricate, ground and flight test unique aircraft maintenance and modifications. We thrive on non-standard adaptations to aircraft for special missions. Our multi-disciplined staff of engineers, fabricators, and technicians have the experience and know-how to handle any customer need in this area. The fact that many of our staff fly in the same aircraft they modify is a testament to the level of effort and attention to detail that goes into each modification.

These aircraft modifications are changes made to a basic aircraft to improve or provide additional capability. Calspan has extensive experience with the integration of experimental and prototype airborne systems and the aircraft modifications required to support such efforts. Calspan has made Outer Mold Line (OML) aerodynamic along with internal mechanical, electrical and data signal modifications to our own and customer aircraft.

Calspan Aerospace also supports the aviation industry as an FAA Part 145 Repair Station. We have a license for limited aircraft maintenance and repair of Gulfstream G-III and G-IV; Saab 340A and B; and the Learjet 20- and 40-Series airframes, powerplants, accessories, radio, and instrumentation.
