FBOs / NORTH AMERICA | 17/01/2017

Cleveland, OH-headquartered Constant Aviation has entered into an exclusive agreement to acquire StarPort, a full-service MRO and FBO based in Sanford, FL.

StarPort’s portfolio includes a full-service FBO, aircraft maintenance, avionics installation, interiors and custom paint capabilities.

“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,” comments Constant Aviation President & CEO Stephen Maiden. “The decision provides Constant its first paint operation, an organizational focal area in 2017. With proposed plans to add a paint facility at the company’s headquarters, 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. As we have experienced growth over the past decade, we waited for the right opportunity. The StarPort acquisition provides us the opportunity to strengthen and expand our capabilities.”
