“We’ve come a long way from my mom’s garage in 1982 to our current 43,000-square-foot facility in Fort Lauderdale,” said Armando Leighton Jr., CRS Jet Spares founder and CEO. The company provides parts exchanges, sales, provisioning packages, repair and rental options for Learjets, Hawkers, Gulfstreams, Challengers and Falcons.

The company plans to celebrate the anniversary with a cross-country tour stopping in Los Angeles; Denver; Houston and Dallas; Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minn.; Atlanta; Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Pittsburgh and Philadelphia; and Teterboro, N.J., culminating with a surprise 25th-anniversary giveaway at the NBAA Convention in Atlanta.
