Fort Lauderdale, FL – Banyan Air Service is proud to announce the opening of its first satellite MRO facility in St. Augustine, Florida. Located at the Northeast Florida Regional Airport (KSGJ), this new facility will be exclusive to HondaJet maintenance and avionics support and compliment their Fort Lauderdale MRO.

The expansion is a direct response to the increased demands for Banyan’s HondaJet MRO services. The new facility will be fully equipped to handle inspections, modifications, avionics upgrades, and AOG support. The additional location in North Florida will help Banyan provide faster response times to AOG situations as well as increasing capacity to accommodate the growing HondaJet fleet of 253 aircraft.

“We are excited to open this new facility and have the opportunity to grow our existing MRO services,” says Charlie Amento, VP/Director of MRO Services. “This will help us better serve our customers outside of South Florida and allow for additional employment opportunities.”

Banyan Air Service was founded in 1979 and has since become a leader in the aviation industry.  The new facility will be staffed with experienced technicians and will provide the same quality of service that Banyan is known for at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.

Open for business mid-January, Banyan will provide HondaJet AOG support from this site with Banyan teammates that are committed to providing quality service to HondaJet owners and operators.
