FAA awards Myrtle Air Services, Inc. (MASI) with its 145 Air Agency Certificate, making it the Myrtle Beach International Airport’s newest Part 145 Repair Station.
Myrtle Air Services, Inc. (MASI) has earned its 145 Air Agency Certificate from the FAA. The FAA regulates civil aviation safety and stipulates that aircraft parts must be repaired by a certified repair station to be legally installed in an aircraft.

Myrtle Air Services announced its second location as a subsidiary of Kingman Air Services to Horry County in July 2016. The 145 Air Agency Certificate will be very beneficial to the company’s growth in Horry County.

With this facility we are better equipped to provide our customers the level service they expect, enabling our partners to conveniently rotate their aircraft into our facilities while reducing a lot of undue cost associated with ferrying aircraft around the U.S. and world. We appreciate the support we have received from Horry County, The Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation, the Myrtle Beach International Airport and the Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics and look forward to a successful future.”–Kevin Dolan, President & CEO, Myrtle Air Services, Inc.
