Constant Aviation is to acquire StarPort, a full-service MRO and FBO based in Sanford, FL (KSFB).
“The addition of StarPort, located near Orlando, FL, aligns with our goal to maintain multiple, full service MRO’s in key regions across the nation. The decision provides Constant its first paint operation, an focal area for the organization in 2017. With proposed plans to add a paint facility at the company’s headquarters based in Cleveland, OH, the acquisition of StarPort offers our customers an immediate solution. We have always had the desire to expand into Florida, a state that houses more than 500 of our niche aircraft,” said Stephen Maiden, president and CEO of Constant Aviation.
StarPort’s portfolio includes full-service FBO, aircraft maintenance, avionics installation, interiors and custom paint capabilities. “After a great deal of thoughtful consideration as to who we would ultimately turn stewardship of StarPort over to, we chose Constant Aviation. Constant Aviation maintains a family-centered culture, built on passion, dedication, and values,” said Jacqueline Cambata, president of StarPort.
The acquisition is projected to close during the first quarter of 2017.
