C&L Aviation Services has appointed Michael Jackson as director of maintenance.

Jackson, who was senior manager of technical operations at American Airlines, will oversee repairs at the company’s 200,000 foot-square Bangor, Maine facility, where Beechjet, Saab, Dash-8 and Embraer are among the aircraft ranges covered.

Chris Kilgour, chief executive of C&L Aviation Group, described Jackson as “an accomplished leader with demonstrated success in managing a large FAR 121/145 repair station with a focus on people and project management”.
