The aviation refinishing company, SureFlight, LLC celebrates opening its new 18,000 sq ft aviation paint facility. As part of the fivefold expansion, SureFlight constructed a new state-of-the-art Double Down Draft paint booth capable of accommodating a large size helicopter such as the Sikorsky S-92 with main rotor blades installed, or two helicopters side by side without blades. SureFlight can also accommodate mid-size fixed wing aircraft up to the size of a Hawker 800.

Dan Watkins, CEO of SureFlight said, “The facility expansion will allow SureFlight to increase the quantity of work we are capable of accommodating. Our manager, DeWitte Binkley, already has an established 32 year reputation in the Northeast US rotorcraft industry for exceptional quality paint finishes. Building a multimillion dollar paint facility just by itself is worthless. When we combine DeWitte and his team with our state-of-the-art facility, we create the highest quality refinishing company available. The first helicopter painted in our new paint hangar was Donald Trump’s S-76B. Mr. Trump and his aviation team recognized that such a high profile helicopter required the finest paint shop available.”
