BRUNSWICK, Maine — Tempus Jets, an aviation repair and maintenance firm that has leased nearly 35,000 square feet at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station to relocate and expand its aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul business, is not affiliated with a company with a similar name that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, as reported Thursday by the Bangor Daily News.

Tempus Aircraft Sales and Service, LLC, now based in Englewood, Colorado, filed April 26 in U.S. District Court in Denver, Colorado. While Scott Terry holds ownership interest in both companies, the firm with a facility in Maine is not party to the Chapter 11 filing.

On Friday, Terry said by phone that about 20 people work at the Brunswick facility.

In an email, Steve Levesque, executive director of the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority, said Tempus Jets has a five-year lease at Brunswick Landing and was current on payments.
