Repair Station - CRS # F35R977Y

Fox River Aviation Enterprises (FRA) is the only American Champion Aircraft (ACA) Approved FAA Part 145 Repair Station.  We are  located within ACA's buildings/hangars.  In most cases, the same craftspeople that build the new production aircraft assist in the work that FRA accomplishes. We know them inside and out. So what better place to bring your 7 or 8 series Aeronca, Champion, Bellanca, or American Champion Aircraft?

 

Since we are located in the factory, we use factory new parts and have complete access to the ACA factory welding fixtures, tooling, drawings, technical data, engineering staff, FAA DERs/DARs, and just about anything else we need to get the job done.

 

Whatever work you need completed we can handle it.  We specialize in all of the following types of  7 and 8 series aircraft work:

 

  • General and preventative maintenance / Annual inspections (We know those little spots that need to be looked at that most overlook)
  • Complete aircraft restoration/rebuilds (Fly your old aircraft in, or bring in that "project" you have been trying to finish, and when you come back to pick it up, it will look factory new; you may not even recognize it!)
  • Avionics / Wiring upgrades (You can 'go big' with a complete Garmin G500 panel, or just upgrade that old wood grain panel. Replace that old fuse panel with a circuit breaker panel? No problem. Mild to wild, we got you covered.)
  • Fabric work (Lets be honest, not every shop can do fabric work.  If they do, maybe they do one or two repairs a year. We cover 35+ complete aircraft a year. Cosmetics are important. In most cases, you cannot even tell there was a fabric repair completed.)
  • Painting work (We have three full size paint booths, paint 20+ aircraft a year, and have all the supplies and colors in stock. If we don't have a color, we can mix it. From complete aircraft re-painting to minor touch-up, we've done it.)
  • Welding work (Our certified welders do this everyday. They do repairs in areas that most wouldn't even think of welding.)
  • Aircraft upgrades (Get the latest factory options on your older aircraft today)
  • Major and minor repairs and alterations (We can handle that STC installation of those bush wheels, VG's, tow hooks, smoke systems, or whatever the latest and greatest thing is)
  • Insurance / accident repairs (If you unfortunately need this type of work, rest assured that it will be completed the right way.  We have done many jobs for insurance companies and can work with you and your agent. You will have that piece of mind that it is just as good as when it left the factory new.)

We treat every aircraft as if it was our own, and take the time and effort to get them back to looking like they did when they left the factory. We truly are dedicated to preserving a classic, whether it's a 50 year old Citabria or your Super Decathlon's first annual. We work with you every step of the process, and will be in contact during the work.  Contact us for a free estimate and/or to talk a repair station representative.
