In just three years since acquiring its Orlando Sanford International Airport facility, Constant Aviation has added nearly 35,000 square feet of hangar space and invested more than $2 million in physical improvements. Today, the company, which specializes in aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul, is ensuring its continued success at the site by extending its hangar leases for an additional eight years. These lease extensions will allow Constant Aviation to serve customers in Florida and along the East Coast uninterruptedly through the end of the decade.
“We took over this facility in 2017, and it enabled our business to simultaneously add capacity and increase our capabilities,” said Constant Aviation Chief Operating Officer Kevin Dillon. “Constant Aviation also operates aircraft maintenance facilities in Cleveland, Ohio, and a nationwide network of mobile technicians, and we have really benefitted from the traffic here at Orlando Sanford. At any given time, we have close to 20 in-work aircraft packed in our hangars and on the ramp. That’s because Florida is one of the busiest states for private travel for both business and pleasure, and our Orlando Sanford location is perfectly situated in the middle of it all.”
The improvements made since Constant Aviation leased the facility have been numerous. Most significantly, in 2018 the aircraft interior modification center was moved to its own dedicated space. It previously had been housed in a general maintenance hangar. This expansion and reorganization freed up existing hangar space for more maintenance work, and it also generated efficiencies throughout the facility.
