Constant Aviation is celebrating its 15th anniversary since its founding at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Beginning as a single-hangar operation with a handful of technicians, Constant now employs more than 450 people, operates 276,655 sq ft of hangar space in Cleveland and Sanford, Florida, and has a nationwide aircraft-on-ground (AOG) mobile response network.
The MRO has specialized in airframe inspections since its beginning, but through acquisitions and organic growth it has expanded into airframe and engine maintenance, avionics, interiors, and paint capabilities. Its certifications and approvals include work on Gulfstream, Bombardier, Embraer, Cessna, Dassault, Hawker, Beechjet, and Nextant aircraft.
Its AOG team dispatches technicians from 22 cities, having responded to nearly 40,000 calls since 2016. Meanwhile, its 2017 merger with affiliated company Nextant expanded its engineering and production capabilities to include complex accessories and composites. Also in 2017, Constant acquired the multipurpose facility at Sanford, with full-aircraft painting, complete interior installation, and avionics, and on-site non-destructive testing. That facility itself has grown since to 110,000 sq ft.
“Our 15-year record of accomplishment is just the beginning,” said Constant Aviation CEO David Davies. “During our next 15 years, we will build on our core values of service, innovation, and quality, to grow and always remaining focused on helping our clients operate safely, efficiently, and effectively.”
