What happens on the ground is just as important as in the air. Whether it is routine maintenance or an unscheduled repair, our onsite Maintenance employees make sure our aircraft is in perfect working order prior to takeoff.

Empires goal for our Maintenance Department is to not only repair and maintain our aircraft, but to ensure they have the tools and opportunities to do so to the highest standard. With a emphasis on  providing a safe work environment, promoting a culture of open, honest and direct communication, to build Empire Airlines as a great place to work.

Our maintenance facilities operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on our fleet of ATR’s. This includes preventative maintenance, line maintenance, and scheduled inspections up to and including ‘A-Checks’. Engine changes, sheet metal and composite repairs are all accomplished in-house by our maintenance professionals in accordance with Federal Aviation Regulations and company policies and procedures.
