GSE Maintenance

PJi is committed to meeting your GSE maintenance needs to keep your aircraft flight ready. Regular preventative maintenance is vital to keeping downtime to a minimum.

PJi's expert service technicians keep your equipment performing at optimum working conditions by performing routine maintenance on motorized GSE such as ground power units, lav and water carts, and aircraft tugs, as well as non-motorized GSE like towbars and axle jacks.

GSE Repair

When your GSE breaks down, you need to get it back in service in a timely manner – but you also want to make sure it’s repaired properly.

PJi’s qualified team of GSE maintenance mechanics is highly proficient at working on all kinds of ground support equipment.

PJi offers overhaul and refurbishment services to restore your equipment to like-new condition. Once we have received the equipment at our facility, our GSE service technicians will provide you with a quote for refurbishment. After the quote is approved and the service has been completed, you won't believe the equipment you receive is the same as what you sent.

Challenger Aviation in Houston, TX, USA

It’s clear why PJi is a respected name in the aviation industry. From the initial RFQ to the final sale, you made customer service a priority. A cabin pressurization unit is a sizable purchase for a growing business. You made every effort you could to make it fit our budget. When we finally made the decision, it was after normal business hours on a Friday evening. I was surprised when you answered the phone and had already made arrangements. John, you even made the funds transfer easy. We were astonished when we returned from lunch the following Monday to find a brand new shiny box waiting for us in the hangar.
