SAN BERNARDINO, CA – March 5, 2015 – The San Bernardino International Airport Authority (SBIAA) Commission approved a lease agreement with Stratus Aircraft Services, Inc. (SAS) to begin operating an MRO business at the San Bernardino International Airport. The new MRO will be located in an ultra-modern hangar and offices conveniently located adjacent to Luxivair SBD, an upscale FBO offering a full complement of services for private and business aircraft.
Status Aircraft Services Inc. is a California corporation based in San Bernardino, CA and will provide a wide range of maintenance, repair, and alteration services including structural modifications, avionics installations, service bulletin and AD compliance items, and scheduled/unscheduled maintenance for a wide range of aircraft categories including business, commercial, military, and private aircraft.
According to Richard Joseph, President of SAS, aircraft owners and operators today rely on numerous organizations as part of their overall maintenance, repair, and overhaul requirements. By providing a wide range of services, SAS will position itself as a one-stop-shop for owner/operators of turbo-prop and jet aircraft, including narrow body commercial airframes. “Our goal at Stratus is to have a healthy and successful company that is a leader in customer service,” says Mr. Joseph. “We want our customers to feel confident they are receiving quality service when they call upon us to maintain, upgrade and repair their aircraft.”
Mark Gibbs, Director of Aviation for San Bernardino International Airport, adds, “Word is quickly spreading of the opportunities available at SBD, and (aviation) businesses want to be a part of that success. We believe that Stratus has the right people, expertise, and strategic location (adjacent to Luxivair SBD) to provide trusted maintenance services that aircraft owners and pilots seek with value they can rely upon.”
