Aerocare Aviation Services has completed modifications to its paint facility at Hawarden Chester Airport in Wales, following its acquisition by Complete Aircraft Group of Exeter, England. The modifications include widening the opening of the paint hangar's doors to 22 meters (72 feet), which enables the facility to accommodate the repainting of business jets as large as the Embraer Legacy 600 and Bombardier Challenger 850.

“Under our new ownership, we are making substantial investment in the real estate, equipment, and manpower for the aircraft operators and owners we serve,” said Aerocare managing director Peter Mankelow. In addition to the paint facility modification, Aerocare has increased its in-house capabilities and approvals, he added.

The company noted that contrary to competitors in the region, Aerocare has an established Part 145 repair facility adjacent to its paint operation, allowing aircraft owners access to maintenance, repair, interior refurbishment, and modifications. Additionally, Aerocare is an authorized dealer for Honeywell, Collins Aerospace, Standard Aero, BendixKing, and Gogo Business Aviation.
