Raytheon last week said it has appointed Banyan Air Service as an Authorized Service Center for its Bonanza, Baron and King Air series airplanes. Banyan, located at the Ft. Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE), is a full-service FBO specializing in airframe maintenance, engine repair and avionics upgrades for many corporate and general aviation aircraft. Banyan Air Service, with more than 130 employees, is the largest FBO at FXE with approximately 400 based aircraft. The facility currently occupies 210,000 square feet of hangar and office space. “This addition to our network of Authorized Service Centers emphasizes our commitment to our growing number of Beechcraft customers,” said Randy Groom, president, Global Customer Service and Support. “The establishment of an authorized service center at the Banyan Air Service facility ensures that we can achieve this requirement and meet our customers’ expectations.”

Banyan is an approved FAA and EASA repair station and has also earned certification from the Argentinean, Brazilian and Venezuelan governments. Banyan has experience on most King Air and Beechcraft models, performed such major and minor work as structural repairs, engine overhaul management, hot-section inspections and repairs, plus comprehensive avionics engineering, repairs, installation and integration. “Located at Ft. Lauderdale Executive ... we are thrilled with our new alliance with Raytheon Aircraft Company,” said Don Campion, president of Banyan Air Service.
