Bombardier earlier this month named Mather Aviation of Sacramento, Calif., as its newest authorized maintenance facility for Bombardier Learjet aircraft, expanding the company's service and support network to 43 authorized facilities worldwide. In turn, Mather Aviation is the second facility appointed in California in the past 12 months, following Landmark Aviation in February 2006. It is also the seventh new facility named worldwide in the past year. Based at Mather Airport near Sacramento, Mather Aviation’s Rancho Cordova Facility offers round-the-clock AOG assistance and line-maintenance service. It is home to an 86,000-square-foot maintenance hangar and a 25,000-square-foot storage hangar. Established in 1991, Mather Aviation includes a staff of 40 factory-trained technicians.

“With over 1,500 Learjet aircraft based in the United States, including over 90 in California, Bombardier recognizes our customers’ need for convenient access to first-rate maintenance support,” said James Hoblyn, senior vice-president, customer experience, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “Mather Aviation has a proud history of providing quality service to business jet operators across the United States,” said Victor Cushing, owner of Mather Aviation LLC. “We are delighted that Bombardier has selected us to service the exceptional Learjet family.” Of Bombardier's 43 facilities worldwide, nine are factory-owned service centers while there are another 34 authorized service and line maintenance facilities.
