Grant E. Lane, President and CEO of Lane Aviation, passed away this past July after a courageous battle with cancer. While we are all deeply saddened with this loss, the outpouring of support from folks all over has been so heartwarming. There is a hole left that cannot be filled, but we will continue to provide the resources and support for which Grant was so well known.
Lane Aviation, Inc., operates from its own airport with the identifier of T54. The maintenance facility can handle every type of Air Tractor aircraft maintenance, as well as most other ag planes. This includes annual and routine inspections, major airframe repairs, and engine exchanges. If necessary, we can also facilitate the out-sourcing of major engine repairs. With Air Tractor factory-training and FAA certified A&P and IA mechanics, customers are assured of the highest quality work of their aircraft.
Also located at Lane Air Park is the fully stocked parts department of Lane Aviation. Not only is it essential to have parts on hand to facilitate repairs made in the maintenance shop, but it is paramount to have an extensive inventory readily available to ship to our customers. Lane Aviation has maintained its own spraying operation since 1948. Our fleet of multiple Air Tractors not only allows us to know how to best respond to ag operators’ needs, but it also helps us to understand what it means to be AOG. Lane Aviation works diligently to make sure our customers get their required parts as quickly as possible. Whether a customer is two towns over or on another continent, Lane Aviation has the experience and expertise to get them back up in the air.
