Paint World-class aircraft painting

Re-Finishing Aircraft at Premier is both a value-added and standalone service. Clients come to Premier to take advantage of our world-class paint reputation. Others take advantage of this service concurrently with a maintenance visit to gain additional time for revenue service and saving on aircraft ferry flights.

Premier paints Aircraft, from wide bodies and narrow bodies, to regional jets, turbo-props and rotary winged aircraft. Our customers include military, para-military and commercial aircraft of all types. Each aircraft is properly prepared and painted in accordance with OEM instructions.

Our teams are well experienced, having worked not only for owners/operators, but in support of OEM’s, on warranty paintwork as well as factory new aircraft.

Painting

Our two (2) paint facilities can each accommodate up to three (3) narrow-body aircraft or more of smaller size simultaneously. Our facilities are equipped with the latest downdraft systems, air make-up and proper filtration systems. Humidity and temperature are computer controlled to the optimum range for the proper adhesion of paint to the aircraft.

Premier’s paint technicians promise a top quality finish and are equipped with proper breathing equipment, protective clothing and top-of-the-line paint guns that ensure their safety and uninterrupted application of paint.

Touch-ups on repaired components are accomplished in our paint booths guaranteeing both a sterile environment and excellent finish.

Refinishing and Polishing

Our clients have requested the reduction of drag weight associated with excessive paint build-up on an aircraft. Premier uses the most environmentally friendly stripping compounds available on the market. Polishing of leading edges and fuselage improves esthetics while reducing drag and saving on fuel costs.

Aircraft Maintenance

Highly skilled aircraft technicians perform all aircraft maintenance services, as per the approved instructions and regulatory protocols. Our technicians attend a regulator-approved three (3) year college Aircraft Technician curriculum and are required to work as apprentices with senior technicians until they have proven their competence; following which they can request permission from Transport Canada or the Federal Aviation Administration to take tests required for their respective AME or A&P certification. This method of training is rigorous and a testament to the dedication of the technicians who have chosen Aircraft Maintenance Engineer as their career.
