October 2005- Penn Yan Aero in Penn Yan, N.Y. has been in the aviation engine overhaul business for a long time now—60 years—and they’ve maintained an excellent reputation for good work from nearly that first day.
Begun as an aviation repair shop in 1945 by Harold “Eagle” Middlebrook (who passed away three years ago at the age of 86), Penn Yan Aero has been a family-run business all of these years.
While Penn Yan Aero currently has plans to do some extensive expansion to their physical facility in the near future, they have no intention of moving from the Penn Yan Airport (KPEO) in upstate New York. It’s the only location at which the company has been since that first day of operations in 1945.
