Constant Aviation has expanded its nationwide AOG (aircraft on ground) mobile response network by more than 15 per cent this year as the MRO company aims to “meet growing customer demand”.
Constant noted that more than 50 fully-trained technicians deploy in over 30 mobile units from 24 strategically-located base stations to provide dedicated maintenance, avionics and structure services. New network sites include Scottsdale, Arizona; Los Angeles, California; and Salt Lake City, Utah.
During the first half of 2021, Constant Aviation AOG teams have provided service at more than 300 airports. The company said that some of its most active service regions during the first half of the year have been Dallas, Scottsdale, the San Francisco Bay area and throughout the Northeast.
“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 Aviation’s vice president 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. This trend is likely to continue through the rest of 2021 and beyond, and we have the capacity to meet continued growth in demand.”
