As everyone is well aware, COVID-19 is forcing a “new normal” in the world today. As we continue to evaluate the ongoing situation, we are taking the proper precautions to ensure the safety of you and our employees while remaining open for business.
Aircraft Sanitation: Priority is being given to the sanitation of cabin and cockpit surfaces on all of our aircraft. For added protection, we’re experimenting with an antimicrobial barrier product that is designed for aircraft interiors, is applied to common touch points, and provides up to 90 days of germ-killing protection.
Reduced Hours and Staff: Several employees are working offsite and/or splitting shifts. We apologize if this causes any delays in our response time.
FBO Hours: Both locations (Westminster, Maryland and Rock Hill, South Carolina) are currently still open. However, the FBOs are running at reduced staffing levels and the normal operating hours are shorted to 9 am to 5 pm.
Flight Operations: Areas with particularly high numbers of COVID-19 cases are being evaluated, and in some cases, avoided completely.
Self-Quarantining: In line with recommendations from the CDC, if any employee displays any signs of COVID-19, has any exposure to anyone who has, or if any employee has been traveling to known areas with high concentrations of the virus, we are removing that employee from the active roster until they have been quarantined for the appropriate amount of time. This may result in further reduced staff.
Maintenance Facilities: While still open, we are implementing changes to promote separation in our shops amongst technicians. We are also taking precautions to sanitize the aircraft prior to releasing back to customers.
Aircraft Sales: Sales representatives are primarily working from home but are accessible via phone and/or e-mail.
As we continue to monitor the situation, we will keep you informed of updates and changes along the way. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
