Yingling Aviation Announces Expansion
Yingling Aviation, a Cessna-affiliated general aviation services provider located at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport, has announced that it will add 9,000 square feet of hangar and office space to make room for McCauley propeller overhaul and service. The $1.5 million addition, which is the first part of a two-phase expansion, is expected to be completed by March 2008. Yingling said that the second phase will accommodate repair services for composite propellers. Exact start dates have yet to be determined. However, land in close proximity to Mid-Continent Airport has recently been purchased. "Propeller technology is moving forward in close pace to new airframes being developed by many aircraft manufacturers," said Yingling Aviation President Lynn Nichols. "In anticipation of composite propellers becoming more commonplace in years ahead, we are taking the necessary steps now to position Yingling to provide state-of-the-art service and support for them." McCauley Propeller is a division of Cessna Aircraft.
