Fox River Aviation Enterprises (FRA)
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. 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.
