Constant Aviation has expanded its AOG mobile response network by nearly 15 percent this year because of growing demand, the Cleveland-based MRO provider and Directional Aviation subsidiary reported. The company added strategically located base stations in Scottsdale, Arizona; Los Angeles; and Salt Lake City. More than 50 fully-trained technicians and 30 mobile units now serve those and 21 other base stations in 13 states across the country.

“Private aviation flight activity has recovered significantly during the past year and is now at or above pre-pandemic levels in many cases,” said Constant v-p of AOG operations Paul Witt. “Business travel is expected to truly take root in late Q3. As a result, we are seeing both the need to return to service corporate aircraft that had been parked during the pandemic and aircraft with an overall increase in flight hours due to aircraft owners flying for leisure travel, requiring greater inspection and maintenance activity.”

Constant’s AOG mobile teams support 86 models from 14 business aircraft manufacturers. The company also operates full-service maintenance facilities at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and Florida's Orlando Sanford International Airport.
