Who We Are

Keeping you in the air since 2010

MCAS (Mid-Continent Aviation Services) started as the fleet maintenance team for ICM Energy. In 2010, the plan was put in place to make the hangar a full service MRO that would provide the highest quality maintenance service at a very competitive price. In 2017 MCAS expanded their services by adding the business jet division, which specializes in the Hawker 4000 and the Premier 1A. Our maintenance team is made up of 15 individuals with over 200 years of aircraft experience. You can trust that there is no job our team can’t handle!
