Florida-based STS Aviation Group has acquired the assets of MRO provider AeroMod International, including a 114,500-sq-ft hangar at Melbourne International Airport, which now houses a new division of the company—STS Mod Center—that specializes in avionics and structural modifications.
“STS Aviation Group is continuing its high-growth strategy, and with the addition of this new hangar, we have the ability to perform a variety of avionics and structural aircraft modification services for airline, leasing companies and OEM customers both at our new Melbourne facility or on site at their location,” said company CEO PJ Anson. “We already have certifications in place, and the team is up, running and ready for action.”
The location will offer services including in-flight entertainment, satcom Wi-Fi connectivity, ADS-B OUT, in-seat power installations, cabin retrofits and winglet modifications. It holds Part 145 authorization from the FAA, EASA and Brazil’s ANAC as well as AS 9110B and AS 9100 quality system approvals.
Anson believes the new division will draw from the other eight branches of the company for success, such as STS Component Solutions, STS Engineering Solutions and STS Repair and Modification. “It’s all connected, and that connectivity makes a world of difference when it comes to saving our clients time and money,” he said.
