After 25 years on the job, Ed Novak knows how to run his repair shop. With a team of technicians including three IAs, Shoreline Aviation has the capability to maintain aircraft ranging from light piston singles to Citation 500 series jets. "Demand is strong, despite the economy," said Novak. "We have loyal customers who are very happy with the way we've looked out for their safety and pocket books over the years. Safety is always our number one priority. Delivering excellent service at a fair price, minimizing downtime and truly understanding each customer's unique needs is what sets us apart."
Shoreline Aviation specializes in modifications including tip tanks, speed brakes, engine monitoring systems and turbo normalizer kits as well as routine maintenance including services such as dynamic propeller balancing. They also have expertise in repairs and inspections on piston and turbine models. Shoreline Aviation is a factory authorized service center for Piper and Diamond aircraft. Known for their extremely thorough pre-purchase inspections, Novak and his team have saved many customers from unpleasant and costly surprises down the line.
Repairing cabin pressurization systems is another niche expertise that bring aircraft from all over New England. Shoreline Aviation has been successful in attracting new diagnostic business as a result of their reputation for locating hard-to-find leaks using specialized techniques and equipment. Shoreline Aviation also dispatches technicians to airports like Nantucket, Provincetown or Martha's Vineyard that don't have on-field maintenance. "I've traveled as far as Nararssuak, Greenland to repair a Piper Cheyenne fuel bladder for a customer on a trip to South Africa. That's when you want to be sure you have all the tools to complete the job!" said Novak.
In addition to maintenance, Shoreline Aviation's professional staff provides expert service in brokering, managing, maintaining, and leasing new and pre-owned aircraft. They currently operate a Citation 560 on their Part 135 Charter Certificate and are in the process of adding a Twin Cessna 335. Shoreline Aviation also recently announced the addition of a Diamond DA42 Twin Star with Garmin's G1000 panel to their training fleet, enabling them to offer multi-engine training in one of the most modern aircraft available.
