Founded by an avid general aviation pilot and fellow aircraft owner, we operate with the unique perspective of an organization which is intimately familiar not only with the world of professional aircraft maintenance, but also with the world of aircraft ownership and operation. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of quality and safety so that we can deliver the very highest quality of service to our customers. We pride ourselves in going the extra mile to ensure that the goods and services we deliver are the best fit for our customer's aircraft and their specific mission profile.

Bison Aviation is a fully licensed FAA Part 145 Repair Station with Airframe, Instrument and Radio capabilities, an accreditation which is extremely difficult to attain and which sets Bison Aviation apart from most other general aviation shops. Among other privileges, this licensure allows Bison Aviation to conduct testing and recertification of aircraft static systems and transponder equipment. Bison Aviation is the holder of FAA Air Agency Certificate Number 85NR497D.
Bison Aviation is a proud recipient of the prestigious FAA Diamond Award for excellence in maintenance training & safety. This award is the highest conferred by the FAA for aircraft maintenance organizations in recognition of their dedication to employee training and safety. Our technicians regularly participate in online and face-to-face training programs put on by industry professionals, owner / type organizations (ABS, AOPA, TCF, COPA, etc.) and of course the FAA, resulting in a training curriculum which vastly exceeds the regulatory requirements.
Bison Aviation provides general aviation aircraft inspections, maintenance and repair services for aircraft ranging from gliders and light sport through corporate jets and helicopters. By employing a team of highly-skilled and experienced, FAA licensed technicians and inspectors gives Bison Aviation the ability to service virtually any customer’s needs, no matter how big or how small.
Bison Aviation is proud to have a full-time avionics team in-house. While many shops “sub out” their avionics work, Bison Aviation maintains full service avionics staff as a part of our workforce. Our capabilities range from basic troubleshooting to complete panel installations and by having all services in-house (including CNC panel fabrication, laser engraving, and 3D printing) we are able to save time and reduce costs for our customers.
Bison Aviation’s Sensor Service team maintains the world’s largest inventory of legacy airborne EO/IR equipment, including an average of more than sixty flight-ready systems from manufacturers such as Wescam, FLIR Systems, Inc., GyroCam, PolyTech, SweSystems, and more. Through significant investments in research and engineering, Bison Aviation has developed the tools and procedures necessary to repair & service nearly all makes and models of airborne equipment at the component level.
