Maintenance Operations At SAT

Sun May 27, 2001 5:17 am

I know that I should know this, since I live here, but...

What sorts of maintenance are performed at SAT? I always see different planes out near the hangars on the south side of the airport, near Terminal 2 and the south cargo area, and on the northwest side off of what I suppose is Bitters Rd.

Today there's the America West/Phoenix Cardinals theme plane there...

What sort of maintenance is performed here? I also see a lot of what I believe are 328JETs... am I right?

Dee Howard is based at SAT. They perform maintenance and modification on all transport category aircraft. Dee Howard is the company that converted the UPS 727-100s from P&W to RR engines.

Yep to Piedmont.

Also, Fairchild's N. American Delivery Center (not sure if that's its offical title) is located at SAT. 328 prop and jet are always at San Antonio.

AA, CO, and TW also have maint on the field. Most of the planes you see at night are not there for MX, they are just waiting to depart on revenue flights in the morning..
