Noted Aircraft Modifiers become the latest to affiliate with Wichita FBO

Wichita, KS— Yingling Aviation has joined Raisbeck Engineering’s global network of Authorized Dealers.  The widely-respected aircraft modifications firm is the latest addition to the list of Yingling’s aviation affiliations.  Yingling is a long-time affiliate of Textron’s airframe manufacturers Beechcraft and Cessna as well as McCauley Propeller.  In addition, Yingling is an authorized avionics service provider for Bendix/King, Garmin, Honeywell, L3 Avionics, Rockwell Collins, and Genesys Aerosystems (formerly S-Tec).   Established in 1946, Yingling specializes in comprehensive support of Textron turbine aircraft including the Beechcraft King Air for which Raisbeck has designed numerous upgrades and modifications.

“We are pleased to add this relationship with Raisbeck Engineering to our ’credentials,’” noted Lynn Nichols, Chief Executive Officer at Yingling Aviation.  “Our business model is based on providing the highest level of service and support to our customers.  There’s no better way to ensure that than to work closely with and maintain the currency and capabilities required by the industry’s leading manufacturers and modifiers.  Raisbeck Engineering is the acknowledged standard-setter when it comes to the Beechcraft King Air and both our customers and our service personnel are already benefitting from this relationship.”

“We’re also excited to have an organization with Yingling’s level of expertise join our dealer network,” said Lynn Thomas, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Raisbeck Engineering. “Yingling’s established team of aviation professionals combined with a long history in general aviation make them an ideal partner for us. Being well known as a full-service fixed base operation providing 24-hour line service as well as aircraft maintenance, repairs and modifications adds significantly to the Raisbeck Engineering organization.”

Yingling’s long history in general aviation began with its association with Cessna in 1946 as the first official Cessna dealer. As the company’s business expands and continues to grow into the King Air market, Raisbeck and Yingling Aviation share a common goal in assisting King Air operators with product enhancements to improve overall performance and operational flexibility.

“Partnering with Raisbeck Engineering adds a feature-rich product line to our growing list of King Air services,” said Jerry Pickett, Vice President of Aircraft and MRO Sales at Yingling. “We’re extremely proud to become a Raisbeck dealer.”
