When its planes require refurbishment and painting, Cape Air calls on Royal Aircraft Services, an FAA-certified repair station located in Hagarstown (MD) Regional Airport. Its skilled mechanics and paint technicians, averaging more than 25 years of experience, in turn, call on Sherwin-Williams to paint Cape Air aircraft.

"At Thrush our vision is to build the safest, most dependable aircraft in the industry, using only the best components and craftsmanship to ensure a lifetime of productivity and value for our customers," explains Eric Rojek, Thrush Aircraft Vice President.

That is why Thrush Aircraft opts for Sherwin-Williams Aerospace Coatings Jet Glo® for all painted parts.
