Constant Aviation has completed the acquisition of StarPort, an MRO and FBO based in Sanford, Florida.
“The acquisition of StarPort provides us continued growth in the southeast with a 75,000ft² facility that supports maintenance, interior, paint and FBO operations,” said Stephen Maiden, president and CEO of Constant Aviation.
“Our transition plans include the immediate investment of approximately US$2m into the paint facility. The upgrades to the paint facility will help increase capacity, allow for quicker turn times, and will utilize the best advancements in technology. The integration of StarPort into the Constant network will be done strategically so that our organization can continue to operate as a collective unit. Our initial focus at the Orlando-based location will be adding team members to boost capacity and increase capabilities.
“StarPort is well known for its superior paint and interior refurbishment capabilities, specifically on the Falcon, Hawker/Beechcraft and Bombardier platforms. Constant will be investing in training and necessary tooling to expand the product line offerings to include our niche aircraft which will begin with the Embraer, Cessna and Gulfstream airframes.”
