The Nov. 1 opening of T-Aviation, an aircraft maintenance facility at Skyhaven Airport, fills a need and supports continuing commercial growth in the region.
“It’s apparent the Tri-City communities continue to attract commercial and industrial companies to the region, and we want to make sure those entities have efficient access to the world,” said Paul Brean, executive director of the Pease Development Authority, which oversees Skyhaven.
T-Aviation received approval from the PDA board in October to lease a 4,800-square- foot hangar, where it can service up to five fixed wing general aviation airplanes at a time, according to Mark Pride, the business manager who runs the facility with founder Thomas Morgera.
“The immediate goal is a general aviation maintenance facility that primarily services the Skyhaven aircraft owners, as well as the general Seacoast area and the Lakes Region,” said Pride. “I know they’ve been lacking this kind of service, this kind of capability for a few years now, and we’re very happy to now accommodate them.” An active flying club with 80 members and the Civil Air Patrol use Skyhaven and T-Aviation’s services.
T-Aviation (skyhavennh.com/) is taking a phased approach to its development as it looks ahead to tuning its services to the needs of the region.
