This month we want to talk about parts.
Your GM vehicle is a finely tuned piece of machinery, and while it’s designed to run beautifully right from the factory, parts will wear out over time. We know you’ve probably heard the old saying “parts is parts” and maybe you’re thinking that there’s really no difference when it comes to what parts you use.
When it comes to parts, you’ve probably heard the name ACDelco. What you may not know, is that ACDelco provides GM with Factory Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts for all of their vehicles and manufactures parts to fit most other makes and models. When it comes time to replace those parts, Kipp Scott GMC’s Parts Department has choices from good, to better, to best.
First, the Good, ACDelco Advantage. These parts are designed to fit both your GM vehicle and your budget. From Brakes to Wiper Blades and everything in between, Advantage products offer fit, form and function for most makes and models, but a more attractive price. This provides a competitively priced, quality alternative to unbranded aftermarket components.
Next, the Better, ACDelco Professional. These are the parts that you’ll find being used in the shop when higher quality is demanded but cost is a factor. The Professional category of high-quality aftermarket products covers most GM vehicles as well as many other makes and models.
Finally, the Best! GM Original Equipment. OE parts replace those installed during the production of a GM vehicle and are designed to meet or exceed original equipment specifications. Kipp Scott has access to the ACDelco portfolio of more than 33,000 parts that fall into this category.
In closing, parts matter, and Kipp Scott GMC’s Parts department works with your needs and budget to provide the parts you need to keep your ride rolling!
Construction underway at Red Deer Regional Airport Terminal
Construction has begun at the Red Deer Regional Airport to convert the existing terminal into a full-service FBO (Fixed Based Operator), in partnership with Tucana Aviation.
The term FBO is given to an organization granted the right by an airport to provide a variety of ground support services, such as fueling, maintenance, catering, transportation/accommodation logistics, etc. In addition to their operational expertise and experience, they are also service orientated with an unwavering commitment to providing the best customer experience possible for both the passengers and flight crew, as they transient the airport.
Our partner in this endeavour, Tucana Aviation, is a well-established organization with a combined 30 years leadership experience in the aviation/oil and gas business. Their knowledge and experience, along with their unwavering commitment to safety/security as an existing tenant at the Red Deer Regional Airport, makes them an ideal partner. Tucana Aviation will be tasked with increasing the Charter and VIP traffic that utilizes the Red Deer Regional Airport, through various marketing and collaborative efforts with the Airport Authority.
Jim Freake, Operations Manager at Tucana Aviation states: “As the airports newest partner, we see huge potential for both oil and gas companies and private aircraft operators looking for VIP service while at the same time saving thousands in operating costs. We are truly thankful for this opportunity and look forward to helping grow the Red Deer Regional Airport”.
Graham Ingham, CEO of the Red Deer Regional Airport states: “We are very excited to be partnering with Tucana Aviation, and for the opportunity to further grow the airport by leveraging their experience and relationships. Focusing on service and making sure our customers have a positive experience while at the airport is also extremely important to us, as we attempt to capitalize on an already thriving charter market currently running along the Edmonton – Calgary corridor”.
The development of the Red Deer Regional Airports FBO partnership with Tucana Aviation is a vital step towards growth at the airport, and a big part of their future strategic planning. This, in addition to the recent unveiling of their land development strategy, and continued pursuit of scheduled air service, will ensure the airport is capable of achieving its vision of becoming the “Aviation Gateway and Key Economic Driver for Central Alberta”.
